HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Rainbow Warrior football team’s match-up with Fordham University, originally set for Sept. 12 at Aloha Stadium, has been canceled, a school official said Monday.

A spokesperson for Fordham confirmed that the Rams’ first three games of 2020, including their trip to Hawaii, have been canceled after the Patriot League — which Fordham is a member of — announced guidelines that prohibit teams from flying for any competitions.

It’s the first game on Hawaii’s schedule that has been called off.

If everything goes according to schedule, and there are no other pandemic-related impacts, the ‘Bows are set to open the season Aug. 28 on the road at Arizona. The team’s home opener is scheduled for Sept. 5 against UCLA.
