UCLA is once again welcoming some fans to the stands, but they will all have a familiar look.
The Bruins announced Monday that a limited number of team guests could attend outdoor spring sporting events starting Friday, a decision made in accordance with state and county public health guidelines.
The school said it will communicate with athletes and coaches about the process for family members and guests to attend games. Tickets will not be available to the general public and the campus remains closed to the public.
All spectators must be residents of California and will be required to show proof of state residency. Seats will be limited to blocks of four seats or less for members of the same household. Spectators will be required to maintain physical distancing guidelines, sit only in their assigned seats, and wear face coverings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking.
The first event open to team guests will be the women’s tennis match against USC at 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. Also on Friday, the softball team will face the State of Oregon at 4 p.m. at Easton Stadium, and the baseball team will host Utah at 6 p.m. at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
Other outdoor sports with remaining home competitions are men’s tennis, women’s water polo, women’s beach volleyball, and track and field teams.
