Mountain West and Summit League become latest conferences to postpone soccer season
Two more NCAA Division I conferences – the Mountain West and Summit League – have postponed their soccer seasons through at least the end of 2020.
Both conferences had previously announced changes to their fall campaigns, with the Mountain West playing conference-only schedules and the Summit League pushing the start date back to September 23. However, the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic has now caused them to call off all sports competition for the entire fall semester.
The Mountain West, which features women’s soccer only, stated on Monday that the league will now: “begin to explore the feasibility of rescheduling fall sports competition, including the possibility of those sports competing in the spring, and develop options for consideration.”
