This was reported Thursday Tony Marinaro, of the network TSN. Major League Soccer (MLS) initial plan for the 2020 season calls for the final to be played on December 12, which would not interfere with this new date on the CONCACAF schedule.

It would therefore be nine months after the first leg at Olympic Stadium (March 10) that the Montreal Impact could conclude its quarter-final duel against the Honduran club CD Olimpia. Thierry Henry’s men were then inclined 2 to 1 and the return match was to take place in San Pedro Sula on March 17.

The quarterfinals, semi-finals and the final could now all be one-off matches, Marinaro mentioned on his Twitter account. The duels could take place in places such as California, Texas, Florida or even Mexico.

Three other MLS teams find themselves in the same situation as the Impact. Indeed, Atlanta United, Los Angeles FC and New York City FC have all seen their respective duels postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Only LAFC, which faces the Mexican team of Cruz Azul in the quarterfinals, did not play a match in this round.
