UF soccer season opener postponed because of COVID-19

Special to

 Positive COVID-19 tests among three Florida soccer players and the widespread quarantines for those in their direct contact postponed the Gators' season opener set for Saturday at Missouri.

The action is consistent with COVID-19 management requirements developed by SEC's Medical Guidance Task Force.

The two teams will explore an alternate date to play.

UF now opens the season Sept. 26 when Georgia comes to the Donald R. Dizney Stadium for a 4 p.m. match. Admission is free but attendance will be capped at 368 to allow for proper social distancing
