Muskegon Lumberjacks games originally scheduled for March 13, 14 and 17 have been postponed in light of the coronavirus outbreak, the team announced today.

The decision comes after the United States Hockey League Board of Directors unanimously voted on Thursday, March 12 to suspend all game play, practices, workouts, and meetings. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and state health officials asked organizations and communities to cancel or postpone public gatherings of 100 or more people in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, an infectious disease.

“We’re committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure the safety of our fans, player and staff,” Lumberjacks President Mike McCall said in a prepared statement. “Right now, cancelling this weekend’s games is the recommendation until we gather more information.”

The Lumberjacks said they will revise their exchange policy “to provide maximum flexibility for our fans to exchange their tickets for future games this season and next.”

In addition to the suspension of hockey activities, the Mercy Health Arena Box Office will be closed until further notice.

Anyone with questions may contact the Lumberjacks by calling (231) 799-7000 or emailing asponaas@muskegonlumberjacks.com.
