Coronavirus - BAFA Cancel 2020 Season

PRESS RELEASE - 13th May 2020

🚨🚨 IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - 2020 SEASON CANCELLED 🚨🚨

The Ipswich Cardinals regrettably announce the cancellation of all Cardinals 2020 season fixtures for both the Senior & Junior teams in line with BAFA's latest Coronavirus announcement.

BAFA have made the extremely difficult, but understandable, decision to cancel all British contact American football seasons for 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. Therefore all Senior / Adult, Junior, Youth and Diamond Series fixtures for 2020 have now been cancelled. There is the potential to play friendly fixtures later on in 2020 & BAFA, as the sports governing body, will advise at at later date if / when these may take place & if / when team training can restart - all depending on Government guidelines.

We all hope competitive American Football returns as soon as possible & the Cardinals organisation will now priortise planning for hopefully a full 2021 season.

Please read this statement from BAFA Chief Executive Pete Ackerley for more information here & FAQ's regarding the decision here.

While the cancellation of this year's fixtures are very disappointing - there are higher priorities than team sports during this current climate - please look after each other & follow the government guidelines. We will be back when it is appropriate to do so.

Stay Safe.
