HARTFORD, August 19, 2020 – For the second time this month, the Hartford Athletic soccer team’s USL Championship game with the Philadelphia Union II has been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Hartford (5-1) was scheduled to host Philadelphia (1-4-1) on Wednesday night at Dillon Stadium but the game was cancelled after a person in the Philadelphia Union II organization tested positive for COVID-19. There have not been any positive tests among Hartford Athletic players and staff.

The match will be rescheduled at a later date.

Hartford’s match at Philadelphia on August 9 was also cancelled due to a positive COVID-19 in the Philadelphia organization. That match will also be rescheduled at a later date.

Hartford, which shares first place in Group F with the Pittsburgh Riverhounds, returns to action on Sunday when they host Loudoun United (Leesburg, Va.) on Sunday at 7 p.m. at Dillon Stadium.

The top two teams in each USL Championship group earn a spot in the league playoffs in October.
