DEVFC cancelled due to upcoming hurricane
Monday, September 10, 2018
The 21st Down East Viking Football Classic has been cancelled due to impending weather severity, the Elizabeth City State University athletics department announced on Monday night.
The decision means all related activities from Sept. 12-15 will not happen. This is just the second time in the game’s history that it’s been cancelled, the first coming during Hurricane Floyd in 1999.
The contest would have matched the Vikings up with Winston Salem State University, and may still happen, according to the press release sent out by ECSU — but it would take place in Elizabeth City. All who purchased tickets are due a refund from wherever they bought them.
