DALLAS, Texas — Forward Madison FC’s match against North Texas FC on Sunday has been postponed.

In a release, Forward Madison said the decision comes after a Kenosha officer shot Jacob Blake multiple times in the back on Sunday.

The Flamingos said they are postponing the game to “shift attention away from sports and towards the fight against systemic discrimination towards Black Americans.”

Sunday’s match will be rescheduled.

Multiple teams from the NBA, WNBA, MLS and MLB boycotted and postponed games on Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday practice was canceled in response to the shootings in Kenosha.
