As the coronavirus continues to spread across the United States and the world, the Minor Football League (MFL) joins other professional sports leagues in responding to the national emergency affecting us all. The league’s front office has informed general managers of the league’s response to COVID-19.
“The Minor Football League completely understands the severity of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Safety of all personnel, staff, fans and players are of the utmost importance” said Richard Myles, Sr., CEO/Chairman and Founder of the MFL.
The MFL will continue to closely monitor the situation and coordinate with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as federal, state and local governments. The league continues to consult with medical experts and will change plans as necessary as more information becomes available.
The league currently plans to begin the National Minor Football League Conference 2020 season and the Minor Football League Conference regular 2020 season on Saturday, June 6, 2020. Tryouts and combines for the league’s 32 franchises will still go on as originally scheduled as well as travel for league scouts. All major events currently scheduled leading up to the start of the league season are currently being monitored on a case-by-case basis.
The league has implemented voluntary work from home measures as well as notified staff of the importance of self-quarantine in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
