The Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association announced on Friday that it will grant players an extra year of eligibility after it suspended the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns, according to a tweet from the organization.

In an expedited vote, the MCLA’s Executive Board and Board of directors granted, “all eligible 2020 MCLA players,” an extra year of league eligibility. 

The announcement comes one day after the MCLA announced it would follow the lead of most other lacrosse organizations and suspend the season in hopes of decreasing the spread of COVID-19. 

The MCLA is a national organization that governs men’s collegiate college lacrosse at the club level. Colorado is home to seven MCLA teams at the University of Colorado – Boulder, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado, University of Colorado – Denver, Colorado School of Mines, Fort Lewis College, and Metropolitan State University.
