Goshen College athletic department announces fall 2020 spectator policy

GOSHEN, Ind. — Goshen College announced its policy for limited spectators for fall sports on Friday.

Goshen College’s administration has worked closely with the athletic directors and presidents of the Crossroads League to provide a safe environment for student-athletes and athletic staff to return to a modified fall sports season. In order to keep safety as a top priority for all, spectators will be limited.

Each Goshen College participant in an event will be given two complimentary tickets through the pass list. Additionally, Goshen College students and employees will be able to obtain tickets at the gate with their campus ID cards.

Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis until the capacity of the facility is reached. The maximum capacity figures vary based on the size of the facility and include participants and game-day staff.

All home events in soccer and volleyball will be streamed online free of charge on the athletic department’s YouTube channel.

No spectators from visiting teams will be admitted. Media members that wish to attend games should contact the Goshen College sports information office in advance of the game.

All spectators must show identification and adhere to all Goshen College COVID-19 protocols, including the ones listed below. Concessions will not be available; public restrooms will be open, but physical distancing must be maintained wherever possible.

These policies apply to events hosted by Goshen College; fans wishing to attend games at other schools should consult the Crossroads League website for information on attendance limitations and streaming options.

Policies for winter and spring sports will be finalized and communicated at a later date.

Goshen College COVID-19 Protocols:

  • Spectators must wear masks at all times, indoors and outdoors.
  • While members of the same immediate family may sit together, households must remain 6 feet apart from other families.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or using the provided hand sanitizer stations.
  • Self-screen daily and do not attend the game if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms.

This policy is subject to change based on guidance from Goshen College, athletic governing bodies, or local, state or federal authorities.
