On Thursday March 12th, 2020 the CSL league board held an emergency meeting regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). In light of this, the CSL is postponing the next three rounds of match play and the next league cup round. League play will resume on April 19. This decision was based on the recommendations of ENYSSA, the US Soccer directive on team play and the fact that a State of Emergency has been declared in New York City, New York State and New Jersey.
The current plan is to adjust league fixtures as follows:
March 14/15 - moved to May 30/31
March 21/22 - moved to June 6/7
March 28/29 - moved to June 13/14
April 4/5 league cups - moved to midweek at the end of April
At this time, the CSL does not have any information regarding state cup matches scheduled for April 5.
The current plan is to have the playoff matches played the next week or possibly two weeks after June 14.
If your club is a field permit holder, we would advise you to immediately contact the relevant parks department or other agency and seek a refund for any field rented for the next month. The league office could possibly assist you in your interactions with park agencies.
We understand that the updated schedule may cause some inconvenience. Please understand the health and safety of our players, team managers and coaches and club supporters is our number concern and we take this action with their best interests in mind.
We will update the clubs if further developments arise.
Thank you and stay safe,
Cosmopolitan Soccer League Board
