WVU Football Home Games Return To 100% Capacity

Stripe the Stadium at Mountaineer Field

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University Director of Athletics and Associate Vice President Shane Lyons confirmed Tuesday that Milan Puskar Stadium will return this fall to 100% fan capacity with full stadium operating procedures, pregame tailgating in the stadium parking lots and the complete game day experience.

“I want to thank our fans for their patience and understanding throughout the past year,” Lyons said. “Not only is this great news for Mountaineer Nation and our student-athletes, but it adds to the excitement and anticipation for Mountaineer football. A full stadium of 60,000 fans is exactly what our team deserves, and what our fans have been wanting.

“I also want to thank our University, local and state officials for their work throughout the past year. We certainly have been in good hands with their advice and leadership,” Lyons added. “I can’t wait for this fall to again see the rows of tailgaters, experience the thrill of the Mantrip and the roar of a packed stadium singing “Country Roads.”

West Virginia football has six home games at Milan Puskar Stadium in 2021. Non-conference opponents Long Island and Virginia Tech will visit in September before Big 12 opponents Texas Tech, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Texas come to Morgantown later in the fall. The Long Island game on Sept. 11 will kick at 5 p.m., while the Virginia Tech rivalry renewal on Sept. 18 is set for noon.

Football season tickets are on sale now and can be purchased online at WVUGAME.com or by calling 1-800-WVU GAME. Additional information on single-game tickets will be announced later this summer.

Along with 100% capacity at Milan Puskar Stadium, all Mountaineer athletics venues will welcome fans back at full capacity starting with the first home events in August. The athletics department will continue working with University, local and state officials to monitor and follow health and safety protocols based on current conditions.

Tailgating in the lots around Mountaineer Field will be open this coming season.

    I can’t wait! Missing out sitting in Mountaineer Field after more than 30 years of having season tickets was horrible. Like a year of my life in a vacuum. Section 105, here I come!

    I didn’t check during the seat upgrade process to see how many season tix were available stadium-wide, but as of yesterday there were only 13 scattered seats left in Section 123.

    Thanks, Kevin. I’ll save that for future reference.

    I think I might have been sitting in Section 103 when my Penn State son-in-law seated next to me when Don pulled off his epic victory over the Nittany Lions long ago (don’t ask me to remember the year). I know we were in that northwest area of the stadium.
