LITTLE ROCK — The Southeastern Conference canceled all regular season athletics events, as well as SEC championship events, for the remainder of the 2019-20 academic year. The league announced the news Tuesday afternoon.
In addition, all spring football games are cancelled and there will be no additional pro days conducted by SEC institutions.
Previously, the SEC said it would reevaluate whether to proceed with competitions in mid-April.
Other required or voluntary athletics activities, including practices and meetings, remain suspended through at least April 15.
The announcement follows similar decisions made by other conferences, including the ACC, Sun Belt, SWAC and Southland.
The SEC said it will continue to provide student-athletes with medical care, academic assistance, and housing, as needed.
Fans who purchased tickets for the SEC softball and baseball tournaments will be refunded by March 31.
