California Memorial Stadium To Return To Full Capacity

Jun 24, 2021

BERKELEY - Cal football games will feature a more normal look and feel this season with full capacity at California Memorial Stadium, as well as the return of such traditions as the Cal Band, cheer and spirit, and Tailgate Town. Full details regarding health and safety protocols, which will be in alignment with state guidelines, will be announced prior to the start of the fall seasons for all Golden Bear sports.
"We are excited to be able to welcome our fans back to Memorial Stadium and to all of our outdoor venues this fall," Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton said. "We know how much our fans have missed the experience of attending our games in person, which we can see through a 95 percent renewal rate for football season tickets and high demand for new tickets. We are looking forward to an exciting season here in Berkeley, and as we have done since the start of the pandemic, we will follow all state and local health protocols to ensure a safe environment for all those who come out to our games."
Cal football will host six opponents in Berkeley this fall, beginning Saturday, Sept. 4 vs. Nevada and concluding against USC on Saturday, Nov. 13. Other games are against Sacramento State (Sept. 18), Washington State (Oct. 2), Colorado (Oct. 23) and Oregon State (Oct. 30).
Season-ticket membership starts as low as $150 per seat, guaranteeing the lowest price, best seat location, parking, and access to away games and postseason tickets. For more information, visit or email Fans can also send a text to (800) GO BEARS (462-3277).

A new app that will include mobile ticketing, schedules and much more will be introduced later this summer.
Schedules for sports other than football will be announced later this summer. Check and Cal Athletics social media accounts for the latest updates.
