Seems far away now but at least they're not canceling it entirely.

Why? When was it scheduled to be played in 2021. Why not wait until a little closer, we are barely approaching halfway through this year.

Yeah, I don't understand why they're canceling it so early either.

Because there were 2 qualifying rounds to be played in 2020 to determine to the final four teams. One was already cancelled this past March and the other was coming this September.

To do it right those qualifiers still need to be held and time is about up for those so I'm pretty sure they wanna wait until they can do the entire tournament at it's best and don't wanna bother with skipping or changing any of it so they'll just postpone the whole thing.

I do think they took the "safer" route of making this decision very early and pushing it back as far as reasonibly possible.
