Additional policies include:
-Admission will be free.
-There will not be any concessions sales.
-Fans must remain in stands after games and wait for student-athletes to leave the field of play. Student-athletes and fans must maintain physical distancing and masks when meeting after games. Tailgating is not allowed.
