According to ESPN, the USL and its player’s union have reached a deal that would allow gameplay to return on July 11.
An official announcement will be announced after both sides review their sides of the agreement.
Fan access to all games will depend on regulations set by local and state authorities. If games take place as they are currently planned, the Championship would be the first American league to play matches at each team’s home stadium, respectively.
After the hiatus due to COVID-19, Legion FC is set to kick off the 2020 season by hosting Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, the squad that knocked them out of the 2019 USL Playoffs with a 7-0 thumping at Highmark Stadium.
It will be very interesting to monitor the gameplay of Legion forward Neco Brett, as the newcomer previously appeared in 61 contests for Pittsburgh over the 2018 and 2019 seasons, scoring 27 goals along the way. After bagging four goals in the playoff match against Birmingham last year, all Legion fans will be hoping he makes an impact in this year’s contest (in favor of his new team, of course).
