Because of COVID-19-related concerns, The Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association ( CMSA ) is expanding its suspending all game play, team practices and social events through at least May 9, GoPride.com noted.
"We are following the CDC guidance asking for no large events of more than 50 people for 8 weeks," said CMSA president Matt Herek. "CMSA will follow guidance from all appropriate authorities. It's hard not knowing for sure, but we have a social responsibility to follow every guideline given to us."
CMSA President Matt Herek told Windy City Times, "We continue to monitor developments to determine if a longer suspension will be necessary. The safety of our community is something we take very seriously. In addition, we have started a hardship fund so that once we resume play those athletes affected financially by the current crisis will be able to stay engaged with their sports." See ChicagoMSA.org or email email@example.com for more information about the fund.
