Following multiple lightning delays, the New York Red Bulls vs. Inter Miami CF match was postponed to a later date, with date and time to be determined.

According to MLS' Postponement Policy, "In cases where a match is postponed prior to kickoff, but after the Official Match Roster exchange, clubs will be permitted to change their roster regardless of whether the rescheduled match occurs on a date prior to or after the next match in either Clubs’ schedule."

Furthermore, "Any player in-play at the time the match was postponed who is subsequently injured or unavailable due to a trade, loan or transfer before the resumption of the match and cannot participate can only be replaced by a substitute on the Official Game Roster of the postponed match (subject to the goalkeeper exceptions below). Such substitute will NOT count against a team’s normally allotted substitutions."

Since the match was postponed prior to kick off, any yellow cards, red cards, supplemental discipline and player eligibility shall apply to the new date as if that was the originally scheduled match date.

"However, if a player or coach is issued a red card or dismissed prior to commencement on the original match day, a two-match suspension will carry forward to both a) their next match and, b) the rescheduled match," the policy reads. "Additionally, if a player or coach is issued a yellow card prior to the commencement of a match on match day, the yellow card will remain aligned with that match regardless of when it is played."

But a separate note is made for Yellow Card Accumulation.

"If that yellow card triggers the Yellow Card Accumulation Policy suspension, the player will be suspended for their next match regardless of whether it is the postponed match or a subsequent match on the schedule," the policy reads. "In this case, the yellow card remains connected to the postponed match."

As for fans, the Red Bulls announced that all tickets for the originally scheduled match will be honored for the rescheduled match. Please continue to visit newyorkredbulls.com for an announcement on date and time once it is confirmed.
