IU athletics RELEASE
Bloomington, Indiana – We’re back … or do this, you’re back.
Indiana University Athletics plans to allow Memorial Stadium to full capacity for the 2021 IU football season, IU Vice President and Athletics Director Scott Dolson announced today. Full capacity is also planned for all other home sports events of the IU in autumn.
“This is one of the most exciting days for our department and for me personally as we announce our plans to welcome our fans back this fall,” said Dolson. “I cannot thank our fans enough for their patience and understanding as we have followed medical advice to protect the safety and health of everyone during the pandemic. With today’s announcement, we’re continuing to follow the advice of the IU Athletics Medical Advisory Group and are counting the days until we see our grandstands full of Hoosier fans again.
“I would like to thank President McRobbie for accepting and supporting this recommendation, and President-elect Whitten for her cooperation and support for our plan to get back to work this fall.”
Specific COVID protocols for the IU’s indoor and outdoor sports activities this fall will be finalized at a later date.
On May 26, the Indiana University Restart Committee published its recommendations for the fall (August 1 – Dec. 31, 2021), which provided that all face-to-face activities on campus be normalized to pre-pandemic levels. IU Athletics’ decision is consistent with this recommendation and was also made in consultation with state, local and university health authorities.
Season tickets are currently on sale for the Indiana Football season 2021. 2020 National and Big Ten Coach of the Year Tom Allen’s team is saying goodbye to bowl invitations one after the other in January and returning 19 starters from last year’s roster, which was ranked 7th nationwide.
