On Friday, the Big Ten Conference announced that its 2020 Big Ten Football Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon will not take place as scheduled.
The 2020 Big Ten Football Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon scheduled to take place July 22-23 will not be held as scheduled in order to ensure the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, partners and media.https://t.co/6zcTQVbxoi— Big Ten Football (@B1Gfootball) May 22, 2020
In the release, the Big Ten said, “The conference will continue to monitor developing information and continue to consult with medical experts to determine the appropriate dates and format for our annual event.”
This comes shortly after the news that the NCAA ruled that started on June 1, teams could voluntarily return to workouts on campus.
So while the event is not canceled, it seems that they may be exploring other ways for the event to take place.
Conferences that have already announced their change to virtual media days:
The Big 12, Conference USA, Mountain West, The American Athletic Conference, PAC 12, Mid-American Conference
