MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Admirals are opting out of the 2020-21 American Hockey League season, team owner and CEO Harris Turer announced Monday.

Turer says the decision was made due to financial and related implications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Unfortunately the prospect of playing the season without fans and the lack of any revenue was too difficult to manage," he said in a statement. "We look forward to getting back on the ice and welcoming our fans back to Panther Arena for the 2021-22 season."

Information for season ticket members will be available at and on the team’s social media platforms.
