1,000 fans allowed at Coliseum events starting Jan. 30

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Starting with next Saturday’s WVU-Florida men’s basketball game in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, a thousand fans will be allowed entry to events at the WVU Coliseum.

For men’s basketball games, no tickets will be made available to the general public. Mountaineer Athletic Club members at the Mountaineer Scholar level and higher will be contacted about ticket and parking availability in the coming days.

Information for students to obtain men’s basketball tickets will be released next week and ticket information for WVU women’s basketball, gymnastics and wrestling will be released separately prior to those home events.

Ticketing priority will be given to families and guests of the players and coaching staffs, as they have received throughout December and January.

“We are pleased to be able to welcome a limited number of fans back into the Coliseum for our home events,” WVU Director of Athletics Shane Lyons said. “Safety will continue to be our priority as we still must manage the COVID-19 pandemic, but this is a start to getting Mountaineer fans back to where they want to be. We have put a lot of work into the Coliseum as we celebrate its 50th anniversary, and Jan. 30 will be a great moment when we can open the doors to a limited capacity.”
