LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Due to concerns surrounding the widespread health risks associated with COVID-19, the University of Louisville, in conjunction with the Atlantic Coast Conference, has canceled all athletic related activities for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year.
Following further consultation with the league's member institutions, and after previously suspending all athletic activities indefinitely, the ACC made the decision to cancel all athletic related activities including all competition and practice through the end of the 2019-20 academic year.
The unanimous decision was made to mitigate the further spread of COVID-19. Each institution will continue to work in accordance with its respective university and state policies related to its individual campus decisions.
"Our top priority remains the health and safety of our student-athletes as well as our fans, communities and the overall well-being of others during these uncharted times," said ACC Commissioner John Swofford. "We are particularly disappointed for our student-athletes and will continue to work with our membership to assess what is appropriate in the future."
