Big 12 cancels remaining winter, spring seasons


The Big 12 Conference announced Friday evening that all winter and spring sport seasons have been canceled out of concern for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Texas Tech Athletics values the support our student-athletes and coaches receive at each and every home event from our avid fans and supporters. This decision was made Friday afternoon in a call between the Big 12 and its athletics directors.

"The safety and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches, fans and staff will always be our top priority," Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. "This is an unprecedented situation we are facing as a nation. Athletics brings so many of us together and there is no better fan base than here at Texas Tech. We're disappointed for our student-athletes, coaches and fans, but we understand the magnitude of this outbreak and its impact on society as a whole."

In light of the Big 12's announcement, Texas Tech will refund all baseball and softball single-game tickets purchased for any upcoming events. Additionally, Texas Tech will also issue pro-rated refunds for all baseball season tickets and annual seat contributions.

Annual seat contributions can be refunded or donated to the Red Raider Club Excellence Fund to support Texas Tech student-athletes. Every season ticket holder will be contacted next week to discuss refund and donation options.
