DIAA Final Four to be moved, rescheduled; plans to be released Wednesday

NEWARK, Del. – Delaware’s basketball final four and championships will not be played at the Bob Carpenter Center in 2020.

The move is being made out of caution, to prevent potential further spread of the Coronavirus.

DIAA sent us the following statement:

“In light of concerns about the potential spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19, this year’s Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association (DIAA) Basketball Championships will not be held at University of Delaware’s Bob Carpenter Center as scheduled for March 11-14.

“Out of an abundance of caution, UD officials decided to disallow spectator attendance at the tournament, leading DIAA to choose to move the games to new locations. UD officials said this difficult decision is rooted in concern for the safety of UD’s students, faculty and staff.

“DIAA is working to reschedule the games at new locations. The Wednesday games will be moved to Thursday, and the new schedule and locations will be announced Wednesday once details are finalized.

“Fans who purchased tickets for games at the Bob Carpenter Center will be refunded. Those who paid with a credit card will be automatically refunded within 3-5 business days. Anyone who has paid with cash or check will be contacted by the UD Ticket Office. Please contact the UD Ticket Office at (302) 831-2257or athletics-tix@udel.edu with any questions in regards to the refund of tickets.”
