LOUISVILLE, Ky. – March 12, 2020
Due to concerns surrounding the widespread health risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of Louisville, in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference, has suspended all athletic related activities, including all competition, organized practice sessions, recruiting and participation in NCAA Championships indefinitely effective immediately. Plans could be altered at any time as more information becomes available in this very fluid matter.
“We are all experiencing an unprecedented time and as an athletic department, we are doing what we can to help mitigate the spread of this virus,” said Vince Tyra, UofL Vice-President/Director of Athletics. “I know our student-athletes will be disappointed about missing the competition, but their health and safety and that of our coaches, staff and fans is foremost in these decisions. We will continue to have regular communication with our university and ACC leadership, as well as guidance on a national level from the NCAA, as this continues to evolve.”
