Old Dominion University Fall Sports Canceled Due to Pandemic

Old Dominion University will cancel the fall athletic season because of the coronavirus pandemic, President John R. Broderick announced Monday.

“We concluded that the season – including travel and competition – posed too great a risk for our student-athletes,” President Broderick said.

“I know many on and off campus will be disappointed, but we must prioritize the health and safety of our student-athletes, as well as our coaches, staff and fans.”

The decision was made in concert with Athletic Director Wood Selig, coaches, medical and public health experts and state and local officials, he said.

This decision applies to fall sports but does not include men’s and women’s basketball and swimming, which are set to compete this winter.
