Some fans will be permitted at Marshall home football games this fall

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Marshall University announced on Tuesday that some fans will be allowed into Joan C. Edwards Stadium for home games this fall.

Reduced capacity will limit attendance to season ticket holders, students, players’ families and visiting fans, with the possibility of limited single-game tickets available. Those in attendance must comply with social distancing guidelines and wear masks.

Additionally, there will be no re-entry once inside the stadium and no tailgating, although tailgating could be revisited if guidelines are relaxed.

“We are thrilled to be able to have our loyal and passionate fan base in attendance for our six home football games in 2020,” said Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick. “We worked diligently and deliberately to create a plan that will allow us to proceed safely and take care of our season ticket-holders, students, staff and visitors. We will have a minimal amount of additional tickets available, but the best way to guarantee a seat is through the purchase of season tickets.

“Again, we are so grateful we will have fans at The Joan for such a special season. In order to have fans, we must follow the orders and guidelines that will be distributed soon. We will proceed safely, methodically and we look forward to an exciting 2020 season.”

Marshall is scheduled to open their 2020 season at home on September 5 against Eastern Kentucky. The Herd is also slated to host Appalachian State, Rice, Florida Atlantic, Middle Tennessee and Charlotte.
