Article Written by Travis Clark
Published: August 24, 2020

In a typical year, the arrival of August would coincide with a new season of college soccer.

But the spread of COVID-19 and a lack of coordinated national response has left fall sports in an extremely tenuous position. The majority of Division I leagues have now announced the postponement of the 2020 fall season; there will be no NCAA championships for fall sports.

While there is a long list of news that has been released over the past month regarding all levels of college soccer, check out the status of each Division I conference below.
