Surrey, B.C. – The Surrey Eagles have cancelled the 2020 All-Star Challenge due to the new restrictions put in place by the Provincial Health Office (PHO) as of December 3, 2020. The event was scheduled to take place on Friday, December 4, 2020.
The cancellation of the event was disappointing news. “We are obviously gutted by the news of how this affects us, but for now it isn’t our place to state what we think is fair,” said Assistant General Manager Charlie Black. “We aimed to create an event that motivated and entertained all of us, from players and staff to fans and sponsors. Regardless of having to cancel, I’d say we achieved our mission. The excitement in our locker room as we tested out each event and went through all the steps of building our All-Star Challenge was unlike anything I had seen before. It also gave us the framework we need to run this event sometime in the future. The All-Star Challenge may not run this weekend, but it will run at some point.”
