Liga MX teams America, Pumas, Chivas and Leon cancelled their friendlies in the United States due to the coronavirus outbreak.

America was due to face archrival Pumas in Los Angeles on March 28, while Chivas and Leon were scheduled to play in San Jose that same day.

All four Mexican clubs were programmed to play their friendlies in California during the FIFA break, which is also in risk of having national team games cancelled.

At the moment, Conmebol is waiting for confirmation from FIFA regarding suspension of their World Cup Qualifiers, while other leagues have already been paused due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

MLS team Seattle Sounders will play against FC Dallas on another date, Italy suspended its entire league with the country in complete lockdown and some Champions League games are being played without fans in the stands.
