SALT LAKE CITY — Real Salt Lake announced their original match against LAFC would be rescheduled to September 9 at 7:30 p.m.

This comes after the game was originally postponed due to players protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin.

The game on Wednesday was the first that fans were allowed to attend since the beginning of the pandemic.

The game postponement was announced less than an hour before the game was supposed to start.

RSL owner Dell Loy Hansen has also made a variety of remarks that prompted an MLS investigation into a possible "history of racial remarks."

The match on September 9 will be broadcast live locally on KMYU and the KSL TV app and on the radio on ESPN700.
