Just in time for the final two home games of the season, BYU is allowing a limited number of fans to attend this weekend’s basketball contests against San Francisco and Saint Mary’s.
According to the school, spectators will be physically distanced by household around the lower bowl of the Marriott Center.
A limited amount of student tickets will be made available at byutickets.com, starting on Wednesday, at 10 a.m. for Thursday’s game, and on Friday at 10 a.m. for Saturday’s game.
Additional tickets will be made available to 2019 basketball season ticket holders based on their Cougar Club priority level.
“We are losing our minds at the prospect of getting to play in front of fans in the stands this week,” BYU coach Mark Pope said in a news release. “It’s not going to be everybody, but it’s going to be some people, and that is a massive step in a positive direction. We’re so grateful to our administration, medical staff and all others involved for finding a way to do this safely. We can’t wait to share a little bit of Marriott Center magic with the fans this week.”
BYU (17-5, 8-3) hosts San Francisco Thursday at 7 p.m., and then entertains Saint Mary’s Saturday at 8 p.m., in the regular-season finale.
