West Virginia Athletics announced Monday afternoon that no spectators will be permitted to attend WVU volleyball’s first four home games of the season.
WVU Athletics said this decision was made due to precautions with the COVID-19 pandemic and in conjunction with University, local and state officials.
WVU volleyball is scheduled to open its home slate of games this season on Thursday, Oct. 1 against Kansas State. This restriction will also impact the team’s Oct. 2 match against the Wildcats and matches on Oct. 15 and 16 against TCU.
WVU’s home opener against K-State and the first match against TCU will be broadcast live on ESPNU. Both Friday games will be broadcast on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.
Capacity for WVU’s remaining home games, Nov. 6 and 7 against Iowa State and Nov. 12 and 13 against Texas, will be decided at a later time, according to the department.
WVU volleyball joins the football and women’s soccer teams as WVU athletic programs that will play this fall but are not yet permitting spectators at home.
