The Major Arena Soccer League (MASL) has granted the Monterrey Flash and Soles de Sonora a sabbatical for the 2020-21 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Monterrey Flash and Soles de Sonora will suspend operations for the 2020-21 regular season following the parameters to be set by the league Board of Directors. Their MASL membership will remain in good standing along with all voting rights during the time of this sabbatical. M2 member, Chihuahua Savage will also be taking a sabbatical year.

This difficult decision has been made due to the unknown immigration rules, international travel restrictions and unpredictable timelines related to league events and scheduling.
