The inaugural season of MLC has been postponed by the American Cricket Enterprises due to COVID-19.
Originally, the inaugural season of the Minor League Cricket was supposed to start this month. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the tournament joined the many other cricket events that had been postponed due to the pandemic. With that, the event is now tentatively seen to commence in the spring of 2021.
Still, the organizers are still thinking of considering to stage a few exhibition games which can last for about a month and a half starting on September 5. Though the exhibition games remain to be unconfirmed yet, it is expected that a formal announcement will soon be made by the ACE by the third week of August.
So far, ACE is determined to push through with the drafting of players on August 15 as well as with the formation of the squads. With that, progress will still be seen for more than 2,000 hopefuls who have registered with ACE’s online player registration portal. As for the drafting process of the 24 teams, the decision of the team owners will be made public as early as next week.
