Just five days after the death of Columbus Crew midfielder Kirk Urso, Major League Soccer announced on Thursday night that the Crew's match against Toronto FC, originally set for Saturday, has been postponed until Aug. 22nd.

The re-scheduling of the match will allow the Crew to attend Urso's funeral. Both teams agreed to the change, which was announced on late Thursday night.

Urso died last Sunday at the age of 22. The exact cause of his death is still unknown.

    God Bless that we still see what is more important. RIP Kirk and condolences to all his loved ones.

    Nothing more emphatic in sport than when competitors can unite in a common cause or remeberance. People are people, it seems.

    Respect and condolences.
