Minnesota announces details for upcoming spring game, including limited fan capacity
Minnesota has announced it will hold its spring game on May 1 in front of limited capacity crowd.
The Gophers will allow up to 10,000 fans into the stadium to watch the team’s annual spring game, which is line with local COVID-19 guidelines.
According to a release from Minnesota, tickets are currently available to be claimed in pods of two or four. Tickets will only be distributed digitally.
Masks must be worn inside the stadium, according to the release.
The game will kick off at 11 a.m. and will be televised on the Big Ten Network. Gates will open at 10 a.m.
This will be the first opportunity for fans to see Minnesota in person since the end of the 2019 season. The Gophers’ 2020 spring game was canceled due to the pandemic, and fans were not permitted at games last season.
Minnesota is also “encouraging” fans to bring decorated oars into TCF Bank Stadium for the spring game, per the release. The custom oars will be added to the hallway that the Gophers use to travel from the the locker room to the field on game day.
