Loudoun United played four home games this year at Segra Field in Leesburg, with the most recent being Sept. 19.

Loudoun United FC, a member of the United Soccer League Championship league, has cancelled the remainder of its 2020 season after multiple members of the organization tested positive for COVID-19.

Club officials say the decision was made in consultation with the organization’s medical experts and USL officials.

It was not immediately clear whether the people who tested positive were players, other staff involved with the team or a combination of the two. Loudoun United officials did not respond to a request for comment.

The club played four home games this year at Segra Field in Leesburg, with the most recent being Sept. 19.

United had three games remaining on its schedule. The Black-and-Red’s condensed second season ends with the club logging a record of 1-9-3.

“Our priority has always been the health and wellness of all individuals involved with Loudoun United and we look forward to a successful 2021 season,” the team said in a statement.
