NCAA president Mark Emmert released a statement on Wednesday announcing the all events will be held with limited attendance. This includes both the Division I men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, and the Frozen Four tournament.
Essential staff and limited family will be the only ones permitted to attend.
This comes on the heels of a COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak throughout the United States. Earlier on Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially labelled coronavirus as a global pandemic.
The NCAA is also discussing moving the men’s Final Four from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to a smaller arena.
