LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Following the Big Ten’s announcement that it will be following local health guidelines when it comes to fans attending sporting events, Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos shared how many fans it plans to allow.

  • Baseball 2,700
  • Volleyball 2,400
  • Softball 675
  • Soccer 675
  • Spring Football 46,000 (50% capacity, could increase to 75% capacity)

Tickets for the May 1 Spring game go on sale April 1 to season ticket holders and donors and on April 2 to the general public.

The Husker baseball and softball teams both have home openers this weekend.

Preliminary information for upcoming Husker athletic contests includes the following:

  • Season ticket holders for the most recent ticketed season will receive the first opportunity to purchase tickets (i.e., 2019 volleyball, soccer; 2020 baseball and softball) and will receive direct email communication for their respective sports today.
  • All ticket sales will be on a single game basis, and all tickets will be mobile.
  • Fans will be required to wear face coverings in all Nebraska athletic venues.

Nebraska Athletics said more details on venue capacities, ticket allocation, seating plans and health and safety measures will be announced soon. All plans are subject to change based on adjustments to Lincoln/Lancaster County directed health measures.

Currently, the Lancaster County Health Department DHM lists occupancy for indoor and outdoor gatherings at 75 percent. However, for any event over 500 people or more a plan must be submitted to the Health Department. That DHM is set to expire on April 12.
