GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFXR) — The Atlantic Coast Conference has canceled all athletics competition and practices through the rest of the 2019-20 academic year amid concerns about the spread of the coronavirus.
The league announced the move Tuesday. The ACC had previously suspended those activities “until further notice.”
As a result, spring football practices will not take place at all ACC schools, including Virginia Tech and UVA. Lacrosse, softball, baseball, tennis and outdoor track seasons are also done for the school year.
The ACC’s statement said the cancellations came after a unanimous decision among league member schools, with Commissioner John Swofford saying league officials are “particularly disappointed for our student-athletes.”
