"It's terribly disappointing to have to cancel this year's game, but there are so many issues involved with bringing in approximately 130 players and 25 NFL coaches from every corner of the United States and Canada," Shrine Bowl executive director Bob Roller said in a release.

It presented too many potential issues for this one year."

The Shrine Bowl was scheduled to take place Jan. 23, 2021.
