2020 Seattle Supercross | Race Cancelled Due To COVID-19 Restriction
UPDATE 4:50 PM CST | As a result of the Washington State ordinance, Feld Entertainment has announced the complete cancellation of the 2020 Seattle Supercross. All tickets purchased on Ticketmaster.com will automatically be refunded back to the purchaser’s original form of payment. All other tickets that were purchased at ticket outlets, box office or via phone can be refunded at the original point of purchase.
In addition to this, Feld Entertainment has stated that the 13th round of the 2020 series will be rescheduled, certainly in a different venue and possibly a different date, but there is no information when or where that could be.
More information will be shared in the coming days, so check back for more.
And now it’s time for the Monster Energy Supercross Series to feel the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Wednesday morning Washington State Governor Jay Inslee enacted a ban on all public events of crowds over 250 people or more for three counties in the state and downtown Seattle until further notice. This immediately puts the 2020 Seattle Supercross into question, as the race is set to take place at CenturyLink Field, a property managed by the state.
The COVID-19 issue has already forced major racing organizations to take drastic measures for their events, including MotoGP and Formula1, so it comes as no surprise that it will occur in Supercross. This all comes at a key time in the series, as we are in the final six rounds of the championship and have the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship on the horizon. Can the series reschedule, hold it in an empty venue, move the event to another location, or will they have to cancel the round completely?
We have reached out to Feld Entertainment for an update on the situation and have been told a full statement will come soon.
Seattle isn’t the only race that could be in jeopardy: Massachusetts has issued a state of emergency, but have not yet started the ban on public events. If they do, the same problems apply to the Foxborough Supercross.
