The Ottawa Aces have had their entry into the RFL system delayed until the 2022 season.
This is due to increasing COVID-19 cases across the UK and Ontario,which casts doubt on the ability to travel freely between Canada and the UK in 2021.
The Aces will focus on making sure all players and staff are given the support they need during this difficult time. All current season ticket deposits will be honoured for the 2022 season.
They say they will now concentrate efforts on the future, and focus on bringing professional Rugby League to TD Place Stadium in 2022.
