LETTER FROM THE LEAGUE
MAJOR LEAGUE RUGBY HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL THE REMAINDER OF THE 2020 SEASON AND TURN ATTENTION TO 2021
DALLAS [March 19, 2020] – Major League Rugby (MLR) announced that all remaining 2020 matches are cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 global crisis and the health and safety guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“On behalf of MLR and all of our teams, I am saddened to announce that the remainder of the 2020 season is cancelled. We believe it is ultimately the correct decision as we factored in health and safety risks for all parties,” said MLR Commissioner George Killebrew, “I want to ensure our fans that there is no doubt MLR will be back in 2021 and will emerge bigger and better than ever before. We will be using this time as an opportunity to grow all aspects of MLR and we’re excited to continue this journey into 2021, and for many years to come.”
MLR will return for the 2021 season. Aside from MLR 2020: Virtual that premiers this Friday, fans can continue to expect exciting initiatives in the coming months.
A NOTE FROM YOUR COLORADO RAPTORS
While we are sad that we will not be able to finish up our 2020 season, we respect Major League Rugby’s decision. Nothing comes before the health and safety of our fans, players, coaches, and staff.
We will be reaching out about ticket refunds in the coming days.
