The University of Arizona Football Program announced Wednesday that it would like 100% capacity for the season.
The decision, in partnership with Pima County Health and the school, is to resume full capacity and ramp-up at the Arizona Stadium in the fall.
“Our athletics division has made a conscious choice in its step-by-step approach to viewership throughout the spring, and this full capacity announcement for the 2021 football season is the exciting end to our painstaking process,” said Athletics Director Dave Heeke in a statement. “Watching and cheering Arizona Football in person is the foundation of our fan and student-athlete experience. Southern Arizona gathers for home soccer games this fall, representing the synergy between our program, the University of Arizona, and the community.
“Game days create an electrifying atmosphere in and around Arizona Stadium, and it’s exciting to be planning this dynamic energy return to southern Arizona this fall.”
Arizona’s recent change allowed full capacity for the school’s baseball and softball home games for the final series of the season in late May.
The school’s mask guidelines will continue to be followed for fan visits to football matches in the fall. In rooms where appropriate physical distancing is not possible, a mask is required for those who have not yet been vaccinated.
