LAFC: CCL postponement might be positive

The sporting world is on hold. As the coronavirus spreads throughout the world and social gatherings are increasingly cancelled, postponed, or moved behind closed doors, major sporting events, which obviously attract vast crowds are a hotbed for a spreading virus, have been some of the worst affected.

It started slowly, with the odd match here and there postponed due to one or two cases. But as last week progressed and the extent of the virus became clear, almost all global sport was either cancelled or postponed.

One competition was the CONCACAF Champions League. In a statement last Thursday, CONCACAF announced that the Olympics qualifiers, Gold Cup qualifiers and the CCL would all be postponed for 30 days, akin to the decision that Major League Soccer made regarding its domestic competition.
