Finals Day Postponed - Update and Full Statement

The BAFA Universities Finals Day - scheduled for tomorrow - has been cancelled due to the current weather conditions hitting the north of the country.

The event, which had been slated for the John Charles Stadium - now faces rearrangement, continuing what has been a torrid winter for the sport in its first season of BUCS recognition.

In a statement sent to Double Coverage earlier today, Director of Student Football Andy Fuller said;

"I write to inform you that having had discussions with various parties involved with the American football Finals Day a decision has been made to postpone the finals due to the inclement weather conditions affecting venues and travel.

"I have this morning, sought to speak with all Athletic Unions so we can action the immediate steps of cancelling transport and wider arrangements.

"I will retain a dialogue with all parties throughout the day on the issue of rescheduling. From a team perspective this will involve the Athletic Unions (representing the institution) and the Head Coaches (given the need to ensure people can arrange time away from other commitments).

"Once agreement has been reached on how we will progress we will release details."

With the Easter holidays already here for many institutions, and the BAFANL season approaching fast, the league will be under pressure to solve this situation swiftly.
