ODU Port Day to be Cancelled Along with Entire ODU Fall Sports Season

Tuesday, August 11, 2020   (0 Comments)

Since 2016, the Virginia Maritime Association and the Virginia Port Authority have hosted Port Day during an Old Dominion University Monarch’s football game. Port Day at ODU has grown to become a well-supported and popular event which is enjoyed by the community and raises awareness about the importance of the maritime industry. The 2020 Port Day at ODU was to have taken place on October 24 with the Monarch’s hosting the Cavaliers of the University of Virginia.

With yesterday’s announcement that ODU is cancelling their fall sports season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Port Day at ODU will also be cancelled.

UVA at ODU would have attracted strong attention from across Virginia, and beyond, and it is disappointing this year’s Port Day must be cancelled. However, VMA supports ODU’s decision which prioritizes the health and safety of the student athletes and the broader community, and we look forward to planning for Port Day at ODU in 2021.
