Some Fans will be Allowed at Saluki Football Games this Spring


When the SIU football season kicks off next month, season-ticket holders, students and player families will be able to attend the games at Saluki Stadium. 

Seating capacity for the four games will be limited to approximately 15 percent, based upon a plan approved by the campus Emergency Operations Center.

Safety measures will include socially-distanced, assigned seating. Tailgating will not be permitted, and fans will be required to wear a mask or facial covering inside the stadium.

Gates will open one hour before kickoff, and Saluki Athletics is instituting a Clear-Bag Policy for all of its home games.
The Missouri Valley Football Conference is expected to announce a revised schedule next week, after Indiana State's recent announcement to opt out of spring football.
