Pioneer Football League announces 2020 Football Season will not be played

Fri, Aug 7, 2020 10:03 am

 

This Will Be The First Fall UD Will Not Play Football Since 1945

ST. LOUIS – The Pioneer Football League’s (PFL) Presidents Council has announced the league’s schools will not conduct conference competition in fall 2020. The PFL membership is spread from coast-to-coast and throughout the Midwest which poses challenges related to team travel, as well as difficulties meeting applicable state, local and institutional health requirements and COVID-19 mitigation strategies.

 

James M. Danko, President of Butler University and Chair of the PFL, shared the following observations. “The Presidents and Athletic Directors of our respective universities made this very difficult decision after extensive deliberations and consideration of many factors. We recognize that our student-athletes will be disappointed, but our highest priority is the health and safety of all those involved in our athletic programs. Ultimately, the risks of proceeding are simply too high especially to ensure the safety of our students.”

 

Recognizing competition is an integral part of the student-athlete’s educational experience, the PFL is committed to exploring meaningful opportunities and experiences for football student-athletes this academic year, if this can be done reasonably and safely.

 

The Flyer football team, as is the case with the rest of UD’s sports programs, will train and practice this fall, pursuant to local and campus health guidelines and NCAA practice protocols.

 

This is the first fall since 1945 that Dayton will not play a football season.  Interestingly, the team practiced but did not play competitively that year as well.
