Major League Soccer has decided to postpone Wednesday nights games.

After players-led protests caused postponements in the NBA, WNBA, and MLB, Major League Soccer players followed suit in doing so in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.

MLS put out a statement pledging its support for the Black community, saying 

“The entire Major League Soccer family unequivocally condemns racism and has always stood for equality, but we need to do more to take tangible steps to impact change,”

the statement went on saying quote “We will continue to work with our players, our clubs and the broader soccer community to harness our collective power to fight for equality and social justice.”
