Two more football conferences in the HBCU have cancelled football in the fall. The NCAA Division II leagues, announced today that its board of directors and Athletic Directors Association voted to cancel the fall season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The SIAC and the CIAA have both suspended football. In a joint statement, the CIAA and the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) said:
“The CIAA and SIAC both appreciate and understand the significant impact that today’s announcements with regard to the status of 2020 Fall sports. Both the CIAA and SIAC enjoy athletic-related events, traditions, and rivalries that date back over one-hundred years. However, in light of the increased health and safety risks confronting much of the country, today the CIAA and SIAC affirm that the welfare of our student-athletes is sacrosanct and must preempt all other considerations when evaluating any return to competition efforts.”
There are tons of teams in North Carolina from these two leagues. Here are all the teams that will be affected by this decision.
Savannah State, Albany State, Fort Valley State, Morehouse, Benedict, Clark Atlanta, Miles College, Tuskegee, Kentucky State, Lane and Central State all make up the SIAC.
The CIAA consists of Bowie State, Virginia State, Virginia Union, Chowan, Elizabeth City State, Lincoln (PA), Fayetteville State, Shaw, Winston-Salem State, Johnson C. Smith, St. Augustine’s and Livingstone.
This is a monster blow to HBCU football.
