The Missouri Valley Conference has announced that the 2020 fall season will be delayed until Friday Sept. 18. 

Along with the news of the postponement the MVC has also canceled the non-conference seasons for men's soccer, women's soccer and volleyball. Men's and women's cross country, men's and women's golf and women's tennis will be delayed until Sept. 18 but will still play a normal season.

While this ruling affects most of the MVC's fall sports, football remains unscathed at this time. The Missouri Valley Football Conference and the Pioneer League will make their own decision. 

As of right now there is no ruling on winter and spring sports.
