We address you today with mixed feelings of pride and sadness. Pride, because as leaders in sport, we know that we have to always do what is best for the players, coaches, sponsors, and fans of the WNFC. Sadness, because the responsibility of being a good leader has brought us to the ultimate decision that we must cancel the 2020 season.
The efforts of our fans, teams, players, coaches, and owners have grown the game like never before. With the support of our tremendous sponsors (adidas and Riddell Sports), we are achieving our goal of developing as a professional leader in women’s tackle football. More young girls, sponsors, and fans have entered the sport as a result of our time together. Thank you to Adidas and Riddell Sports for your continued commitment to the WNFC as we now focus on the 2021 season.
This decision comes in a time where our best leaders should reveal themselves and work together to ensure that we THRIVE in and not simply survive this pandemic. The WNFC, our sponsors, and all of our teams are committed to coming back for the 2021 season and continuing to make sure that we all #stepOURgameup. We will continue to progress the game, and put the health, safety, and strength of people first.
