Mason Athletics Plan for Limited Attendance The George Mason men’s and women’s basketball teams will be able to have a limited number of fans, including students in EagleBank Arena for basketball games after consultation with University leadership. Mason Athletics’ plan for a return of Patriots basketball will follow the guidelines from the university and state health officials regarding the latest developments on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As we have developed this plan, our guiding principle has been to support the health, safety, and well-being of the Mason community. Face coverings that meet CDC guidelines will be required at all times in EagleBank Arena. The limited number of fans allows Mason Athletics to allow for proper social distance markers throughout the arena, assign seating in pods, and delegate entrances to minimize traffic upon entry. Ticketing for the basketball games will be strictly digital. The transition exclusively to mobile ticketing adds convenience for season ticket holders, while also allowing for contactless entry into EagleBank Arena. Information on how to purchase tickets will be available later this week.
