Previously, Louisville was only allowed to have a maximum capacity of 20 percent at home games, in conjunction with guidance from state and local health officials, as well as Governor Andy Beshear’s office. Yesterday’s game with Vanderbilt was the last game under this capacity restriction, as the attendance was announced at 880.
The new capacity limit of 50 percent means that Louisville’s attendance could be as high as 2,000 for its remaining six home games (Duke this weekend, Miami (FL) May 20-22). It is also the maximum attendance capacity set by the NCAA for its baseball and softball tournaments this season, including regional rounds as well as the College World Series.
Additional local and state health policies, such as wearing a mask, are still required for attending games.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – University of Louisville athletics has continuously worked with state and local health officials to update attendance policies as the heath climate improves. UofL officials sought and received permission to increase the percentage capacity for Louisville baseball home games at Jim Patterson Stadium to approximately 50 percent effectively immediately.
As a result of social distancing guidelines being eased, additional tickets will be available for this weekend’s series against Duke and all remaining home games.
Tickets will be made available to the public beginning on Thursday at 1 p.m. ET. Louisville baseball season ticket holders will be contacted prior to the public on-sale with additional information regarding ticket opportunities.
Per state and local health and safety policies, masks will still be required to be worn at all times inside Jim Patterson Stadium unless actively eating or drinking. Children ages 5 years and under will not be required to wear a mask.
