Atlantic University Sport announces return to sport this fall


Atlantic University Sport (AUS) says it intends to pursue a full season and championships in 2021-22.

A release states regular season competition and any exhibition play will begin for football, soccer, rugby and cross-country competition in September.

AUS says the football schedule will be altered to facilitate a September start, soccer, rugby and cross-country schedules do not require changes and winter sports will follow similar formats and timelines as in previous seasons.

Plans to return to competition in the fall of 2021 were unanimously supported at a recent meeting of the AUS board of directors.

The conference intends to release the 2021-22 schedules and fall and winter championship dates and hosts next week.

AUS says all planned competitions may be altered or cancelled in the event of a new/worsening outbreak of COVID-19 in any relevant region.
