The National Lacrosse League (NLL) has suspended the season until further notice due to the coronavirus, according to a release from the league this morning. This move comes in wake of the NBA, NCAA, and multiple college conferences announcing changes, suspensions, or cancellations of seasons.
Full Statement from the NLL:
“The National Lacrosse League has determined that it is in the best interests of our fans, our players, our coaches and our staff to temporarily suspend play until further notice due to concerns over COVID-19. We will continue to evaluate this situation and remain in constant communication with health, team, business and league officials across North America. Security and safety is our top priority and focus in these challenging and unprecedented times, and we will continue to provide updates on resumption and rescheduling of play as they are determined.”
