The dates you typed are correct but you posted an old link to last year's dates. Also, we generally name the offseason by the season it precedes, so this thread might be better called the 2020 Offseason Calendar.

For example, the "2019 Offseason Thread" was started November 2018 and we stopped posting there February 2019.

Here is the current NYCFC post on the offseason calendar,


Note that when they did this in 2018 they referred to the upcoming 2019 offseason. Now a year later and they call the following offseason the 2019 offseason again.

Because this club.....

Yeah - I didn't want to do this thread again. But things should be happening early for us due to playing in CCL and the MLS schedule moving up to later February than early March.

There is no reference like there was in 2018 to the release of the schedule and the circling of games at “Yankee Stadium.” Hmmmmm

Sorry about that. Fixed the link, and thanks for posting the correct one also.

Last year’s calendar said January 26. Posting the old calendar for comparison now that it’s been fixed above.
But last year we weren’t in CCL so?

I keep wanting to think we’ve moved past the drop dead date by which the team had to give notice of a split season because to do it after that date, or this date, or the next date, is just ridiculous. Then I remember, “But this team...”

I fully expect to receive the App Alert the morning of the home opener telling us the venue has been moved to Citi Field.

Haha, who am I kidding..... the alert will arrive two hours before kickoff.

The team could very well have given notice to the league already, but won't announce it until the schedule release. You'd have to think we'll get the schedule before Christmas -- in previous years it was early January, so everything gets pushed up by a couple weeks this year.

We started Jan 26. The league opened Jan 12.

I’ve been assuming the Jan 11 date is the earliest the league will allow camps to start, but perhaps not.

Doesn't the CBA require a certain amount of time for the off season? MLS Cup was almost a month earlier than last year.
