BOULDER — The four main athletic facilities the University of Colorado hosts events in the fall – Folsom Field, the CU Events Center, Prentup Field and the tennis complex on the South Campus – with the state lifting previous restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be at full 100 percent capacity for events beginning with the new athletic year in August, athletic director Rick George announced Monday.

Folsom is home to CU’s football team, the CU Events Center to the men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs, and Prentup Field to the women’s soccer team.  When weather permits outdoor play, the tennis team has its facility on the CU South Campus; the other campus facilities – Kittredge Field (lacrosse), CU’s Indoor Practice Facility and Potts Field (track) host games and events solely in the winter and spring.

“All of us, the student-athletes, coaches and staff are looking forward to welcoming back our fans to every one of our venues after playing before mostly empty seats last year,” George said.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, fan attendance was few and far between during the 2020-21 athletic year, as only mostly family members were allowed for one football game and a handful of games toward the end of the spring seasons for the aforementioned sports.

Season tickets are currently on sale, as are tickets for the Texas A&M game in Denver (the latter through Ticketmaster at https://www.ticketmaster.com/event/1E005A8E78C40CE6).  Mini-plan packages go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, June 22); single game tickets for the six home football games at Folsom Field will be available for purchase beginning July 7.  More information can be found at the following link: https://cubuffs.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetGroupList?groupCode=FB&linkID=colorado&shopperContext=&caller=&appCode=.

CU will adhere to county regulations that have yet to be finalized regarding the wearing of masks and/or proof of vaccination.

Other sports that host home events – golf and skiing – hold them outside Boulder County and cross country no longer has a home meet after the NCAA altered the qualifying requirements for the national championship.
