ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Commissioner Mike Aresco has announced that, effective immediately, the American Athletic Conference will suspend all spring sports competition until further notice.

The decision to suspend competition was made after consultation with member institutions as part of a continued effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to protect student-athletes, coaches, institutional and event staff, media and spectators.

The Conference will continue to evaluate risks associated with intercollegiate athletics competition in conjunction with local and state health authorities.

The UCF Athletics Department is continuing to closely monitor the COVID-19 virus outbreak. UCF officials are working with the university, local and state health departments, the American Athletic Conference and the NCAA to take proactive steps with this fluid situation.

UCF athletic teams will be permitted to hold practices and team activities but will not travel or participate in competition.

Refunds for fans who have purchased single game tickets to upcoming sporting events, beginning with the baseball games against Yale this weekend will be automatically refunded in the next 7-10 business days.

Refunds for additional upcoming events will be refunded within 7-10 business days after the scheduled event date.

UCF will work with season ticket holders at the end of the regular season to determine the impact and offer a partial refund. Fans with questions may contact the UCF ticket office at 407-823-1000 or tickets@athletics.ucf.edu

UCF announced Wednesday that it will move to online instruction beginning Monday for at least the next two weeks.
