Roughriders Season Delayed

March 14, 2020 - National Arena League (NAL) - West Virginia Roughriders News Release

With recent developments resulting from the COVID-19 virus, the National Arena League has opted to delay the start of the 2020 season. Here is the statement from the National Arena League:

The National Arena League has announced that the 2020 season will take place. On a conference call earlier today, the Board of Directors discussed making adjustments to the 2020 NAL schedule in response to the news surrounding COVID-19, the Coronavirus.

"The fans, players and staff members health and safety is our top priority," said NAL Commissioner Chris Siegfried.

In recent days, some NAL arenas have made announcements that affect some currently scheduled games. The league is working through multiple scenarios which could include a short delay to the start of our 2020 season. The Board of Directors will monitor the information provided to us and adapt accordingly. Since the games have not yet started, it allows the League an opportunity to make any necessary changes.

We want to reassure our fans, players, sponsors and staff members that once this passes, the 2020 NAL season will be played.

This is an ever-changing situation and the Roughriders would like to thank their fans and sponsors for their patience through these times. We will keep everyone up to date as news becomes available.
