Season Cancelled

As the world continues to change dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Dr. Bonnie Henry’s announcement of the reopening plan on Wednesday, the Kelowna Falcons have announced the disappointing news of the cancellation of the 2020 season.

As a result of Dr. Henry’s announcement and those of the other governmental directives in Victoria, Bellingham, Bend and Corvallis it’s anticipated those teams will join in cancelling their 2020 seasons as well.

“Nothing is more important to our club then the health and safety of our fans, players, coaches, umpires and staff,” says Falcons General Manager Mark Nonis.  “Despite the improvements we’ve heard in BC from health officials, we don’t anticipate a return to play until late summer or sometime in the fall.  Plus most of our road games take place in the United States and without any ability to really predict when it will be safe and responsible to return or watch, a number of teams have made the difficult decision to cancel season.  We would like to thank our fans and corporate partners that purchased tickets and sponsorship packages for this season.”

“It’s obviously a big blow to the league,” WCL Commissioner Rob Neyer said. “But we know Kelowna will be back in 2021, so we’re considering this just a brief pause in the Falcons’ wonderful history, with better things to come.”

The Falcons Family hope that you and your family stay safe and look forward to the 2021 season and getting back on the field and in the community.
