WVU hosts Kansas in a Big 12 football game at noon at Milan Puskar Stadium Saturday, Oct. 17.
No tailgating will be permitted. The stadium will operate at 25 percent capacity as part of the health, safety, and wellness measures being implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The WVU Athletics Department, in conjunction with the University's team of medical professionals and appropriate parties, will not only cap attendance at approximately 15,000 fans for each remaining game this season, but will also take additional steps to increase fan safety.
Facemasks will be required of all spectators entering the stadium (the WVU Athletics Department provided a complimentary WVU-branded mask to every fan who initially purchased season tickets for the 2020 season). Facemasks should always be worn while fans are in the stadium with the exception of when fans are eating and drinking.
