MAC Postpones Fall Sports Until Sept. 3

The Mid-American Conference announced it will postpone the start of field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and men’s and women’s cross country competition until Sept. 3.

The decision allows for more time to prepare for a safe return to competition for players, coaches and staff members.

The new timeline applies to exhibition and non-conference games and will align with the start of the football season, allowing all fall sports to begin at the same time.

The MAC said it will continue to monitor developments related COVID–19 and make further decisions on the fall season based on any new assessments.
