ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Valley State University’s first football game of the season has been called off.

GVSU was supposed to take on Edinboro in Allendale Saturday, but announced Monday that wouldn’t happen. It cited COVID-19 mitigation protocols within the Edinboro program.

“We are obviously disappointed with the cancelation of the game,” head coach Matt Mitchell said in a statement. “Our players were looking forward to getting back on the field for this game, but we will regroup and show the resilience this group has displayed over the last two years.”

GVSU says it’s going to look for someone else to fill the opening on the schedule. If that doesn’t happen, the season will start Sept. 11 against Colorado State-Pueblo at Lubbers Stadium.

There are options to get your tickets refunded or switched to another game.
