Phoenix is canceling all sports tournaments in Phoenix until the number of reported COVID-19 cases and community spread of the virus decreases significantly.
The Phoenix City Council voted 7-2 Wednesday to prohibit tournaments at city-owned sports complexes until community spread falls from the “high” category to the “low” and “moderate” risk categories under the Maricopa County Department of Public Health guidelines.
The city will immediately cancel the tournaments scheduled at its facilities for this month and January, according to the mayor’s office. That includes 14 tournaments — mostly soccer and softball tournaments — involving about 1,900 teams. The tournaments could be rescheduled at sports complexes in other cities.
