5 MLS Games Called Off as Players Call for Racial Justice
Five Major League Soccer matches were postponed Wednesday night as players made a collective statement against racial injustice. The players’ boycott came after all three NBA playoff games were called off in a protest over the shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin on Sunday night. Players from games between Atlanta United and Inter Miami, FC Dallas and Colorado, Portland and San Jose, Real Salt Lake and LAFC, and the LA Galaxy and Seattle all decided not to play in solidarity. The lone match played was between Orlando City and Nashville SC.
