Penn State Athletics will return to full capacity for events this fall, officials announced Tuesday.
The announcement comes as Gov. Tom Wolf has lifted all of Pennsylvania’s COVID mitigation orders except for masks.
Beaver Stadium and other athletic venues will allow full capacity for the 2021-22 academic year.
“We are excited to welcome our 107K strong back in Beaver Stadium and full capacity at our other athletics venues this fall with the adjustments in university, local, state and CDC guidance,” said Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Sandy Barbour. “Our fans are a true home field advantage for all of our teams and the 2020-21 season was not the same without them in our venues. We are so appreciative of the tremendous support of our donors and fans, especially during these challenging times, to allow us to continue to provide our more than 800 students-athletes with the conditions they need for success!”
Officials say unvaccinated fans will be required to wear masks inside University buildings at all times which aligns with CDC and University guidance.
