The Coronavirus has had an impact on local sport with the Group 20 Knockout which was to be held next week being cancelled.
The decision was made public on Saturday afternoon with an email sent out to the clubs.
"It is with regret that the Board of Group 20 has decided to cancel the Paul Kelly Pre-season Knockout for 2020," the email read.
"With much publicity on the Coronavirus and with the Prime Minister announcing from Monday 16th that non-essential gatherings of more than 500 people will be cancelled ... the Board feel we will not be putting people's health at risk."
The Knockout isn't the first event involving MIA athletes being called off because of the pandemic with Little Athletics State Championship being called off as well as Basketball NSW cancelling all activities until further notice.
