2020 MWC COVID19 Precautions and Guidelines

Just as we continue to practice very rigorous measures at training, we are cognizant of the concerns and respect that we have to manage our event differently than we have in past years. The Midwest Classic is certainly not an exception and our safeguards will be elevated.

As an abundance of caution, FC United is committing to some guidelines that will assist with the risk management of  COVID19 for the 2020 Midwest Classic.

These guidelines in place the entire weekend, some of which have prompted us to modify the event format. We do expect visiting clubs, coaches/players, and families to abide by these guidelines and they will be enforced. Coaches will be responsible for compliance from your parents/spectators on your team.


Teams not respecting guidelines will be asked to comply or will be removed from a game and that game may be forfeited.
