BUFFALO, N.Y. [WKBW] — The National Lacrosse League announced Wednesday it has canceled the remainder of the regular season.

“With three weekends left in the regular season and the uncertainty about resumption during that time, we decided it is in the best interests of our players, coaches, staff, partners and fans to remove any uncertainty. Our goal is to find the best, and safest, solution for resumption of play, but what that looks like, and when that occurs, cannot be determined today,” said NLL Commissioner Nick Sakiewicz.

League officials say they will look into all options to see if play can be resumed in the future. Before play was stopped, the Bandits were 7-4 and were a half game behind the top team in the North Division.

“We continue to be in regular contact with the NLL and support their recent decision to halt the regular season, while continuing to figure out what a next step looks like,” said Peter Schmitz, PLPA President.
