The league will officially drop the puck on the 2020-21 season during the weekend of November 13-14, 2020. he Purple Eagles will play a 22-game conference schedule, plus an additional pair of games against scheduling partner Long Island University (LIU), a first-year program that is one of two independent Division I teams in the NCAA. Additionally, Niagara may schedule up to four more non-conference contests to reach a maximum of 28 regular season games. One of the biggest changes coming this season will be the introduction of "pods" for scheduling purposes. Teams in the eastern and western pods will play the other teams within their pod five times apiece for a total of 20 games.

This is welcome news. I assume there will be nobody in attendance, but it still gives players a chance to develop.
I hope fans/students have a realistic chance to watch the games on tv.

It is my understanding that there will be no fans through calendar year end and then determined by current Covid 19 situation.
Western NY has had a resurgence in cases in recent weeks.

LIU could very well become a permeant member in the VERY NEAR FUTURE.
