ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – New Mexico United had its Wednesday match against Rio Grande Valley FC postponed Monday, due to a positive COVID-19 test from an individual or individuals in the RGV bubble.

“We are always fortunate that the protocol put in place by the team and by the league are strict so that the testing happens often enough so we can see this ahead of time,” said New Mexico United Director of Communications and Fan Experience David Carl. A time to make up the postponed match will have to be decided later. New Mexico United has not had anyone in their bubble test positive this season. The team returns to play Saturday at El Paso.
