NCAA Division I soccer championships moved to Spring 2021 with new format

On Wednesday, the NCAA Division I Council approved a package of proposals to move the 2020 fall championships to the spring of 2021. The recommendations now go to the Division I Board of Directors for approval.

After a thorough review, the recommendations were made by the Division I Competition Oversight Committee for numerous fall sports, including men’s and women’s soccer. The adjustments are being made due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
