Champions provides update on 2020 season

Posted Apr 20, 2020 9:42 PM

The Champions Indoor Football League, which includes Salina Liberty, today released an update concerning the 2020 season. It is as follows.

The Champions Indoor Football League board of directors held another conference call to discuss the current pandemic affecting the ability to play the 2020 season.“All of our member teams are still hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to return to the field this season,” stated CIF league commissioner Ricky Bertz. “We understand that this is a major challenge, and ultimately this decision may not even be up to us as a league, but at this point, we do not believe that pursuing all options, until all options have been exhausted, is a negative.”

All options and scenarios are being examined that would allow teams to resume play this season. The CIF will make all decisions based on what is best for our fans, players, staff, and communities and observing all government and medical recommendations.

While acknowledging that restarting the season faces an incredible amount of challenges, including coordinating multiple government jurisdictions, facilities, and regional conditions. All member teams are still working with their arenas holding dates for potential games that would still allow a 2020 schedule to be played.

The Champions Indoor Football League will continue to work with local and federal government agencies over the next several weeks while adhering to the guidelines and mandates that have been implemented until a permanent resolution can be made.

The Smoky Hill Education Service Center (SHESC) has a coronavirus-related deal for tax-exempt organizations.

SHESC, in partnership with School Specialty, has a limited supply of KN95 respirator masks available for educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and city and county governments while supplies last!

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend N95 respirator masks as an effective preventative measure against the transmission of COVID-19. Currently in the United States, however, unprecedented demand has led to a critical shortage of the masks. On April 3, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an Emergency Use Authorization for KN95 masks -- the approval standard used in China with equivalent performance to N95 respirator masks, SHESC noted in a news release. The authorization allows the import and use of KN95 masks during the COVID-19 situation.

According to SHESC, tax-exempt organizations can download the fillable pdf form below and send it to [email protected] to place their mask orders.
