Major League Soccer shared Thursday it will suspend the season for 30 days starting March 12, 2020.

Saturday's Crew SC home game is canceled as a result.

"Our clubs were united today in the decision to temporarily suspend our season — based on the advice and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health Agency of Canada and other public health authorities," MLS Commissioner Don Garber said in a statement Thursday.
