Riverhounds statement on USL decision to replay end of Miami FC match

By Riverhounds Staff, 10/22/21, 4:30PM EDT


PITTSBURGH (Oct. 22, 2021) — Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC is pleased to hear today’s decision by the USL Championship to order a replay of the final 24 minutes of our team’s match Oct. 16 against Miami FC.

As a club, the Riverhounds fully agree with the league’s decision. Based on past precedent set by FIFA and its member federations when there has been a clear misapplication of the Laws of the Game, we believe a replay is the fairest outcome for both our team and Miami FC, and it will allow the result to be settled by the players on the field.

We wish to thank the USL Championship and the Professional Referees Organization for their diligence under these unusual circumstances.

The Riverhounds are eager to move forward and complete their remaining three regular-season matches, beginning with tomorrow’s scheduled match at 7 p.m. against the Charleston Battery, as we prepare to compete in next month’s USL Championship Playoffs.
