"There are many people our organization would like to thank for supporting our players, coaches, and front office staff as we all battled through this very tough week. The concern from our fanbase was overwhelming. We consider ourselves a family, which our fans are an extension of. The players and staff were able to get through many obstacles due to support and well wishes from our extended family, which included our great host families.
Thank you to FC Kansas City and the NWSL for their willingness to work with us on postponing today’s game. While we are all very passionate about the sport, the incidents that went down this week made us look at the bigger picture and put the safety of our players, staff, and host families at the forefront of our minds. Finally, on behalf of our organization, we would like to thank the law enforcement agencies and emergency services for all the hard work keeping this city safe.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the victims and all those affected by this terrible tragedy. Rest in peace Martin Richard, Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, and Sean Collier."
