COVID-19: potential revenue loss for US soccer 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic at the beginning of 2020 hit the sports industry hard. Many professional leagues across the globe suspended their seasons, while Major League Soccer postponed the start of its new season for 30 days in light of the pandemic. This jeopardized the league's media rights deal, which brings in annual revenues of an estimated 90 million U.S. dollars. Teams in the USL Championship, the league below the MLS, are also set to be hit hard by the postponement, with the top teams in the league missing out on potential revenue of over 200 thousand U.S. dollars per home game.
