Fort St. John Northern Strikers teams will need to find another way to pass the time this weekend as Alberta Soccer announced today its postponing all of the remaining 2020 Alberta Indoor Soccer Championships, including those that were scheduled for this weekend. 

"As a leader in provincial sport, Alberta Soccer is motivated to assist Albertans to remain safe and healthy. By minimizing contact with infected individuals and/or surfaces we are supporting the Alberta Provincial Government’s endeavor to contain the spread of the virus within our cities and towns," read a statement by The Alberta Soccer Board of Directors on the Alberta Soccer website today. 

Further announcements on the possible-rescheduling of these tournaments will be shared when they are made public and official.
