The competition committee of Athletics Federation of India on Monday decided to postpone the 24th Federation Cup National Senior Athletics Championships 2020 due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The prestigious Federation Cup was scheduled to be held from 10-13 April 2020 at SAI NS-NIS Patiala.
Announcing the decision, Adille J Sumariwalla, AFI President said, “Looking at the present situation in the country and around the world, hosting any competition is difficult. Health and safety of everyone comes first and we can resume the competitions once things start getting better.
