The Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Wednesday plans for a six-game conference season in the fall of 2020, provided it remains safe for competition.

All seven ACC fall sports will begin play on September 10, including men's and women's soccer.

“Today’s decision was made after months of thoughtful planning by numerous individuals throughout the conference,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said in a statement. “The Board’s decision presents a path, if public health guidance allows, to move forward with competition. Our institutions are committed to taking the necessary measures to facilitate the return in a safe and responsible manner. We recognize that we may need to be nimble and make adjustments in the future. We will be as prepared as possible should that need arise.”

Any additional games, either against conference or non-conference opponents, are at the respective school’s discretion. All opponents must meet the ACC’s medical standards in order to go forward.

As it stands, the ACC women's soccer championship will be contested on November 6 and 8 in Cary, N.C. among the top four teams. The men's ACC championship is scheduled for November 13 and 15, also at WakeMed Soccer Park.
