Listing of College athletic teams dropped in 2020:

The following is our listing of Four year college (NCAA & NAIA) teams eliminated so far during the coronavirus pandemic. Teams were officially dropped due to school closures or budget cuts, and most if not all of these of these changes were likely in the works for some time. However the Covid-19 situation may have accelerated the decision making for many schools.

We have complied a list of 200 teams dropped so far this year (through 9/16/20) and  Tennis has taken the biggest hit (43 teams). Tennis has the highest percentage of international players of any other NCAA sport which may be a contributing factor in why it's at the top of the list:

Teams Dropped by Sport 2020: TOTAL NCAA I NCAA II NCAA III NAIA
Tennis 43 19 13 9 2
Golf 22 5 6 9 2
Cross Country 18 2 6 6 4
Soccer 15 2 5 4 4
Basketball 12   4 4 4
Swimming 12 6 4 2
Track & Field 11 2 2 3 4
Lacrosse 8 1 2 4 1
Volleyball 7 1 3 1 2
Baseball 5 3 1 1  
Rowing 5 4   1
Softball 5 1 2 1 1
Squash 5 5  
Wrestling 5 2 1 2
Fencing 4 4
Sailing 4 3 1
Bowling 3 1 2
Equestrian 3 1 1 1
Football 3 2 1
Other (2 or less teams) 10 5 3 2
Totals @ 9/16/20 200 66 56 52 26

 

40% of the reduction (80 teams) is due to the closing of six schools while 60% is attributable to budget cuts. While sports such as tennis and golf took hits due to budget cuts, sports such as basketball only lost teams due to school closings. And to put it in perspective, by our count there are still over 22,000 NCAA & NAIA varsity teams remaining. So the dropped teams - so far - represent a little less than 1% of the total number of Four year college teams. However there will also likely be announcements of additional closures of smaller schools in the coming months.

Team eliminations have been made equally by gender: 
Teams Dropped by Gender 2020: TOTAL NCAA I NCAA II NCAA III NAIA
Men's Teams 100 38 27 24 11
Women's Teams 98 27 29 27 15
Coed Teams 2 1 1
Totals 200 66 56 52 26
