After the USL announced it had decided to play the 2020 season, the Sacramento Republic FC released a statement earlier this month noting that it is preparing to safely put the pieces in place for its season.

“With the framework for a return to play set by USL Board of Governors meeting, Republic FC will continue to work with local health officials, players and staff to safely resume the 2020 season, and implement proper precautions to safeguard community health. As the schedule, stadium access, broadcast components and other details become finalized, we will provide our amazing supporters with all updates and opportunities to come together to support our club and our community.”

The USL Championship had said that it was “pleased to announce its Board of Governors voted on Thursday in favor of returning to play for the 2020 season, with a provisional start date set for July 11. While additional information on competition format, scheduling, broadcast and other important details will be made available in the coming weeks, it’s important to note that the league’s return to play will be conducted in strict alignment with all local and state public health guidelines. USL HQ also remains in regular dialogue with the USL Players Association on all matters concerning player health and wellness protocols and looks forward to continuing those discussions. To USL supporters across the country, we are grateful for your support throughout this process and look forward to being back in action with you all soon.”
