CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Cyclones have joined the ECHL’s voluntary COVID-19 suspension policy and will not play in the 2020-2021 season.
The team cited Ohio’s strict social distancing guidelines, including restricting only 300 people to enter the Heritage Bank Center.
“After much thought and discussion, we have decided that it is in the best interests of our players, fans and the organization as a whole to bring the 2020-2021 ECHL season to an end,” said Ray Harris, Governor of Cyclones. “This decision was not made lightly, but we believe this is the right solution for everyone involved. Our organization will continue to be active in our community as we try to contribute through new and unique outlets. We will also continue our work as part of the Cincinnati Cyclones Foundation and strengthen youth hockey in the Cincinnati area. “
