Report: Ivy League likely to move football season to spring
The Ivy League is prepared to make a final decision on its college football season next week. According to reports, there’s a really good chance the conference moves its season to the spring.
Earlier this week, the Ivy League announced that it will make a final decision on fall sports, including football, on July 8. It was also reported that the conference was mulling two alternate options to the season: play a seven-game, league-only schedule or move the season to the spring.
According to a report from Forbes.com, it sounds like the Ivy League is prepared to move its season to spring.
“If I was placing a bet, I think it’s 98 percent, 99 percent likely that this thing is moving to the spring for the fall sports based on everything I’ve heard,” one Ivy League source told Forbes.com.
“The financial ramifications of whatever decision they’ve made, you need to have plenty of time to start working on those things. It’s not like they’re going to wake up the morning of the 8th and go with something. The decision’s been made.”
The Ivy League was the first to cancel its conference basketball tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Could it also be the trend-setter for other conferences to start seriously thinking about moving the college football season to the spring?
We should have that answer in the coming weeks.
