CEDAR FALLS – The University of Northern Iowa, in coordination with the Missouri Valley Conference and the NCAA, has canceled all spring sports through the 2019-20 academic year in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The MVC Presidents Council made this decision today with the well-being and safety of its student-athletes, administrators, coaches, media and fans in mind.

The NCAA Division I Council announced that eligibility relief is available for student-athletes who participate in spring sports with details to be finalized at a later time.

The Council also placed an immediate ban on all in-person recruiting for Division I coaches. The new “dead period” will be in place through at least April 15.
