Major League Soccer announced on Sunday, July 12 night that the match between D.C. United and Toronto FC, which was postponed earlier on Sunday, will now be played on Monday at 9 am ET (ESPN2, ESPN Deportes in US; TSN in Canada).
Under the league’s health and safety protocols, clubs are tested the day before each match. The results of yesterday’s tests for D.C. United and Toronto FC produced an initial unconfirmed positive COVID-19 case for one player and an inconclusive test for another player.
