Washington State Publicizes 100% Residence Sport Capability This Fall | information
For the first time since November 2019, Washington State is inviting its fans to home games at Martin Stadium, signaling a return to normal after a year dramatically affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday, WSU announced that it would lift participation restrictions in the fall and allow 100% capacity when the Cougars return to the soccer field in September.
Due to the pandemic, the Cougars only hosted one game at Martin Stadium in 2020 while enforcing strict attendance policies that prevented fans from seeing Nick Rolovich’s team in person.
When the Cougars open the season at home against Utah State on September 4 (8 p.m., Pac-12 Networks), it will be the first game at Martin Stadium with fans since a home final against Oregon State on November 23, 2019.
Fans have seven opportunities to watch the Cougars at Martin Stadium this fall, including three home games within the first three weeks of the season. Following the Utah State game, WSU will host Portland State on September 11 at 3:00 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks and USC on September 18 at 12:30 p.m. on FOX in the Pac-12 Opener.
The Cougars host Oregon State for homecoming on October 9, before returning home on October 16 to play Stanford in a game that will air on ABC, ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU. WSU welcomes BYU on October 23rd and Arizona on November 19th to finalize the home game schedule. The game against the Wildcats begins at 6 p.m. on the Pac-12 Networks.
The WSU accepts deposits for football season tickets in 2021 as well as mini-plans for three games. Fans can buy group tickets from July 12th, and single tickets in advance for CAF members and current season ticket holders will go on sale on July 19th. Access to single tickets for the general public will begin on July 26th.
Both the Seattle Seahawks and the University of Washington announced Tuesday that they will be full at home games this fall.
