According to multiple media outlets, the Ivy League is canceling all fall sports in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

CBS Sports reports an official announcement will be made sometime Wednesday evening.

A set date for when fall sports will return is unclear at this time, Sports Illustrated reported.

CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein reports that winter sports practices will be re-evaluated in mid-July.

The conference hopes it can move fall sports to the spring, The Athletic's Dana O'Neil reported.

According to CBS Sports, the conference brings in anywhere between $400,000-$500,000 annually in guarantees from nonconference games.
