Western Ultimate League Postpones Start of Season Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

For now, the first two weekends of games are postponed.

The Western Ultimate League announced today that they are postponing the start of the season and rescheduling March games for May due to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

WUL Games Postponed

“The health and safety of everyone involved is our number one priority — we don’t want to put anyone at risk,” said WUL Head of Marketing Randi Spencer. “COVID-19 has spread throughout a lot of the cities in the league and we want to ensure that everyone is safe. We are disappointed to postpone the start of our inaugural season, but we feel it is the responsible thing to do as a league. We will be paying close attention to all information that comes in and continue to assess the situation. ”

The league did not announce a planned start date for games, but the WUL website only shows the March 21 and March 28 games as being postponed. April 4th games in Portland and Utah are still scheduled.

The WUL’s announcement follows widespread impacts on sports leagues, including the National Basketball Association, which suspended competition indefinitely last night.
