According to a press release, Milan Puskar Stadium will operate at 25% capacity, or about 15,000 fans.
“I want to thank all parties involved in getting to this point,” athletic director Shane Lyons said in the release. “COVID-19 has presented many challenges, but we have always put the health and safety of our student-athletes, University and community first. Needless to say, we are excited to open our gates and welcome Mountaineer fans back to the stadium.”
Attendees will be required to wear a facemask while inside the stadium and tailgating will be prohibited. Tickets will first be made available to 2020 season ticket holders, WVU students and the families of student-athletes. Some tickets will be reserved for the visiting team.
Remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, Oct. 12.
