The Big Ten Conference announced on Wednesday that it will allow fans to return to regular season conference sporting events from now on. The decision to follow local health guidelines and restrictions was made jointly by the athletic directors of the Big Ten Conference and the Council of Presidents and Chancellors in consultation with academic medical experts and the conference office. “I applaud the decision to allow fans to return to the conference venue for the remainder of the 2020-2021 sporting season,” said the Nebraska athletic director. Bill Moos mentionned. “This is another positive step as we move closer to normal operations in the Big Ten and college sports. Our staff worked closely with local health officials to finalize the details and provide a safe environment at our facilities. I know Nebraska fans can’t wait to start cheering on their Huskers in person again, and we can’t wait to welcome them again. ”
The ruling applies to all remaining events at home athletic venues in Nebraska, beginning with Friday’s baseball and softball games. Tickets will be available for baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball and the Huskers Spring Game on May 1. The Big Ten announced earlier this month that it will allow tickets to be sold to the public at the conference championships, including the Big Ten Men’s Gymnastics and Big Ten Men’s Tennis Championships to be held in Lincoln in April. .
Preliminary information for upcoming Husker sports competitions includes the following:
- Season ticket holders for the final season of tickets will receive the first opportunity to purchase tickets (i.e. Volleyball, Soccer 2019; Baseball and Softball 2020) and will today receive a direct email communication for their respective sports.
- All ticket sales will be on a single play basis and all tickets will be mobile.
- Fans will be required to wear masks at all sporting venues in Nebraska.
More details on site capacities, ticket allocation, seating plans and health and safety measures will be announced shortly. All plans are subject to change based on adjustments to health measures led by Lincoln / Lancaster County.
