Kickers Home Opener Postponed Due to Covid-19 Concerns with Visiting Team

Sad news for soccer fans but good news that nobody on the Kickers organization has tested positive for Covid-19.




I can’t express how much I’m disappointed by this news. It is matched by how little I’m surprised by this news. Teams sport traveling around the country during a pandemic is looking more and more like a bad idea. This will be the second game that the Kickers have had to postpone. So far of the four games the Kickers had scheduled two have had to be postponed.

Official Kickers Statement

The Richmond Kickers Home Opener, scheduled for Saturday, August 1 at 6:00 p.m. has been postponed.
The decision to postpone the match was made out of an abundance of caution following a positive COVID-19 test from a covered person of the Fort Lauderdale CF organization.
A new date for the match will be announced at a later date. Tickets purchased for this match can be exchanged for any future 2020 regular season Richmond Kickers match, based on availability. A Richmond Kickers representative will be in contact with all August 1 ticket holders shortly.
