MVC & IHSA Make Adjustments Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Mar 12, 2020

The Missouri Valley Conference is canceling the Women's Basketball Tournament scheduled in Moline for the well-being and safety of student-athletes, administrators, coaches, media and fans. 

All tickets for the MVC Women's Basketball Tournament will be refunded at the original point of purchase.

The MVC has also suspended all spring sports contests through March 30, effective immediately.

The Illinois High School Association will significantly limit attendance at the remaining games in the 2020 IHSA Boys Basketball State Series, as well as at other IHSA events, to try to reduce the potential spread of the Coronavirus.

The IHSA says no more than 60 spectators per school be allowed in the arena for each contest at this weekend’s Class 1A and Class 2A Boys Basketball State Finals in Peoria.

Games impacted by this change include the 2020 IHSA Class 1A/2A Boys Basketball State Finals this weekend, as well as the remaining contests at the Class 3A and Class 4A Sectional, Super-Sectional, and State Final levels. IHSA State Series’ in Debate, Drama & Group Interpretation, and Scholastic Bowl will also limit spectators to competing students, coaches and essential personnel.

Full refunds will be available for any tickets already purchased for the remaining contests.
