Stanford Athletics Announces New Winter Sports Attendance Policies

Jan 4, 2022

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford Athletics announced winter sports attendance policy changes Tuesday due to additional COVID-19 safety precautions. Spectator attendance at all winter events taking place indoors will be temporarily reduced to only student-athlete families.

These policy changes are effective immediately. Full spectator attendance for all events will resume as soon as appropriate, and will be communicated through direct emails to Season Ticket Members, Stanford Athletics' social media channels, and on

"Cardinal student-athletes are fortunate to experience tremendous support at our home events. However, after thorough consultation with medical advisors and University leadership, it became very clear that implementing these measures is the right thing to do to protect our community at this time," Bernard Muir, Stanford's Jaquish and Kenninger Director of Athletics said. "We hope to be welcoming back full capacities in all of our athletics venues very soon."

Fans who have purchased a ticket to a Stanford Athletics winter sports event scheduled for 2022 will receive additional information about their purchase via email from in the coming days.
