TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Florida State University has canceled all spring sports seasons and the spring football game to help limit spread of the coronavirus.

Florida State Athletics and Seminole Boosters have announced several recent developments, including the cancelation of all spring sports seasons, cancelation of the spring football game and an extension of the deadline to renew 2020 FSU football season tickets.

They say the changes are being implemented to limited the spread of the coronavirus.

“Speaking for both Athletics and Seminole Boosters, we are taking important steps to ensure the health and safety of all citizens,” said FSU Director of Athletics David Coburn. “It is clear that discouraging gatherings of more than 10 people is essential in limiting the spread of the virus.”

Florida State has canceled its annual spring football game along with the post-game concert, all spring sports seasons and athletics-related banquets and award ceremonies through the spring semester.

Seminole Boosters have canceled the annual Spring Tour featuring head football coach Mike Norvell and all other events scheduled through April.

The priority deadline for ticket holders to reserve seats for the 2020 football season has been extended to May 1. Payment plans are still available on season tickets through May 1 and on Booster memberships through August 31.

Fans who have already purchased tickets to the spring football game, as well as Seminole baseball and softball games will be contacted with options to refund or donate the value of their tickets with a deadline to respond by March 23.

The Topgolf Live at Doak Campbell Stadium event scheduled for April 23-26 has also been postponed.
