The State of Texas is re-opening more and more here during this coronavirus outbreak. Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced today that some professional sports franchises may begin applying for approval to host events without spectators starting on May 31, 2020.

According to a statement released by FC Dallas on Monday evening, the club will continue to follow guidance from Major League Soccer regarding a return to 2020 league play.

Additionally, on May 31, youth sports may begin holding practices without spectators other than one parent or guardian per participant. Youth sports competition has been cleared to resume beginning June 15, 2020 with social distancing measures recommended. Having recently returned to limited small group activity during Phase One of the State’s reopening, FC Dallas is ready to progress to full team training for its youth teams with appropriate safeguards and protocols for the health and safety of all players, staff, coaches and parents.

So, slow and steady folks. We’re getting there.
