NWHL postpones 2020 Isobel Cup Final

The game will be rescheduled in Boston at a later date.

The NWHL has postponed the 2020 Isobel Cup Final.

The league will reschedule the game in Boston at “the appropriate time,” per the league’s release.

We want to host the Isobel Cup Final in an environment where our fans, players, and everyone working or attending our championship game can feel safe. The progression of COVID-19 in many parts of the world, including the U.S., resulted in the league making this decision in the interest of public health and the wellbeing of all involved in the event.

The game was set to be played between the Boston Pride and the Minnesota Whitecaps in Boston on Friday, March 13 at 7:15 p.m.

Fans with tickets can use them at the rescheduled date or request a refund at ticketing@nwhlhq.com.

The NWHL is the latest league in women’s hockey, and the larger sports world to make drastic changes to their schedule. Wednesday night, the NBA suspended their season after a player tested positive for the virus. Earlier on Wednesday, the NCAA announced the remaining winter sports tournaments - including the Frozen Four - would be played with limited spectators. On March 7, the IIHF cancelled the 2020 World Championships as well.
