On November 13, 2020, the Ivy League announced that spring sports, including men's soccer, will be cancelled, making it the first year since 1954 that men's soccer will not be played. [2]

Homegrown players

The Homegrown Player Rule is a Major League Soccer program that allows MLS teams to sign local players from their own development academies directly to MLS first team rosters. Before the creation of the rule in 2008, [19] every player entering Major League Soccer had to be assigned through one of the existing MLS player allocation processes, such as the MLS SuperDraft.

To place a player on its homegrown player list, making him eligible to sign as a homegrown player, players must have resided in that club's home territory and participated in the club's youth development system for at least one year. [20] Players can play college soccer and still be eligible to sign a homegrown contract.
