    ACC pushes back fall soccer season

    The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) will delay the start of all fall Olympic Sports until at least September 1st due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    The sports in questioned that will be affected are men’s and women’s cross country, soccer and volleyball as well as field hockey. There will be no regular season games in August and the teams will not be allowed to play exhibition games either.

    This comes on the heels of the Ivy League cancelling their entire fall season earlier this month. The decision was put to a vote and the ACC Board of Governors voted unanimously in favour.

    “ACC institutions will continue with their respective return to competition protocols in anticipation of a fall season,” the ACC said in their statement. “Any rescheduling of contests will also be determined by each school.”

    In regards to soccer the ACC men’s division has 12 participating schools. They are: Clemson, Wake Forest, NC State, Louisville, Boston College, Syracuse, Virginia, Pitt, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and Duke.

    The women’s division contains 14 institutions, with Florida State and Miami also participating.

    As times goes on there will be a decision as to whether or not the season will take place at all.
