Another NCAA Division I conference postpones fall soccer season
The Mid-American Conference (MAC) has become the latest NCAA Division I association to postpone its entire its fall soccer season.
After initially announcing on Thursday that the start of the season would be pushed back to September 3, the MAC followed up on Saturday by postponing the season in its entirety.
All fall sports, including men’s and women’s soccer, will not be able to compete during the fall semester, and discussions about potentially playing in the spring will begin soon.
The MAC features the following 6 programs on the men’s soccer side: Akron, Western Michigan, SIU Edwardsville, Bowling Green, Northern Illinois and West Virginia.
On the women’s side, the MAC includes 12 teams: Bowling Green, Ball State, Western Michigan, Buffalo, Akron, Ohio, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Kent State, Toledo, Miami and Northern Illinois.
At least seven other NCAA Division I conferences have already postponed their entire fall soccer seasons, including: the Ivy League, Southwestern, Metro Atlantic, America East, Atlantic 10, Patriot League and Big West.
