Lincoln, NE (March 24, 2021) Nebraska Athletics announced plans for its May 1 Husker spring football game on Wednesday evening. The Huskers will welcome fans back to Memorial Stadium for the first time since the fall of 2019. The announcement followed one earlier today from the Big 10 conference handing in-person audience regulations over to the individual schools and their local Health departments.
Mobile tickets for the spring game will go on sale on April 1, with stadium capacity set at approximately 50 percent. All fans in attendance at the spring game will be required to wear a face covering throughout their time at Memorial Stadium.
“The spring game environment at Nebraska is unlike anywhere else in the country, and we are excited to welcome Husker fans back to Memorial Stadium on May 1,” Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos said. “We are committed to providing a safe, healthy and fun environment and celebrating the unofficial kickoff to the 2021 football season.”

More details on game-day protocols, procedures and fan amenities will be announced in the coming weeks prior to the May 1 spring game.
Remaining Spring Athletic Events
Additionally, as a follow-up to Wednesday’s Big Ten Conference announcement regarding fans returning to conference athletic events, Nebraska has determined ticket plans, fan capacity and protocols for various sports for the remainder of the 2020-21 athletic season.
All tickets for Husker home events this spring will be sold on a single-game basis on-line at Huskers.com. Tickets for all events will be mobile delivery.
Nebraska’s ticketing plans for all venues follow the current Lincoln/Lancaster County Directed Health Measures, including a minimum distance of six feet between seat groupings, and groups no larger than eight patrons. Everyone in attendance at Nebraska home events will be required to wear a face covering throughout their time in Husker athletic facilities.
Nebraska also has upcoming home contests in men’s and women’s tennis and men’s golf. These are non-ticketed athletic events, with spectator limits and health and safety protocols directed by the on-site athletic events manager.
All plans are subject to change based on adjustments to Lincoln/Lancaster County directed health measures.
