On Tuesday, Sporting Kansas City II announced that a member of the SKC II organization had tested positive for COVID-19 and out of “an abundance of caution” the game against Louisville City, initially set for Wednesday, August 12th, had been postponed one week to Wednesday, August 19th. Here is the full statement:

“The USL Championship announced today that Wednesday’s scheduled match between Sporting Kansas City II and Louisville City FC has been rescheduled for next Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Proceeding with an abundance of caution, the postponement comes after a covered person in the Sporting KC II organization tested positive for COVID-19.”

It isn’t specified if it’s a player, coach or some other member of the organization. As of right now, Sporting KC II are still set to face Saint Louis FC, in St. Louis, this Saturday the 15th. That will presumably allow time to test everyone who was potentially exposed to the person who tested positive, before resuming play.

Then SKC will stay on their road trip with a bus ride to Louisville for next Wednesday’s game before coming back to Kansas City for their second and final home game of the season against the Oklahoma City Energy FC at Swope Park.

The Blue Testament will bring you more information as it’s available.
