COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC announced on Thursday that the club will now be hosting their match against New Mexico United on August 15, 2020 at Weidner Field, instead of playing in El Paso.

Kickoff is still scheduled for 3 p.m. MT.

The contest was originally set to be held at the University of New Mexico Soccer Complex.

Due to the fluid nature of COVID-19 restrictions across the country, prior to the resumption of the season this month the USL Championship provided provisions in the 2020 season competition structure to allow for teams to play more away matches or more home matches, as necessary, in order to stay in compliance with public health guidelines in their respective markets.

This match, along with all other home matches in 2020, will be available for Switchbacks Season Ticket Members only.
