A day after the Ivy League delayed any athletic activities until Jan. 1 of 2021, a Power Five conference is making moves, just a little less drastic.
The ACC announced Thursday morning that all fall Olympic sports will not participate in competitions until at least Sept. 1. This ruling applies to men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball. Teams will still be allowed to practice but the ruling prohibits participation in any exhibitions or nonconference games.
“ACC institutions will continue with their respective return to competition protocols in anticipation of a fall season,” the league said in a release. “Any rescheduling of contests will also be determined by each school.”
