U Sports has cancelled the 2020 women's and men's university hockey championships. 

The men's tournament got underway yesterday here in Halifax, while the women's tournament was being held in Charlottetown. U Sports announced the decision to cancel the tournament in a late-night statement issued last night.

It says the decision was made following Hockey Canada’s announcement to cancel all sanctioned activities due to the evolving global situation regarding COVID-19.

U Sports Chief Sport Officer Lisette Johnson-Stapley says in the statement that she understands this is disappointing, but the decision was made in everyone's best interest. U Sports says those who have purchased tickets will receive a full refund in the coming days.
