Delaware State announces plan to allow limited fan attendance at indoor sports events

The University is pleased to announce restoration of near-normal spectator attendance at indoor athletic events. After limiting attendance at indoor sporting events for the month of January due to the rise of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, the University has announced a new policy.

 Up to 600 spectators can attend the games, including 300 Delaware State University students. Up to 150 tickets will be reserved for Hornets’ season ticket holders and special guests, and 150 seats will be offered to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis.  

There will be no walk-up sales of general public tickets. All will be sold online at: 

All spectators will be required to show proof of a negative COVID PCR test result administered within three days of the games they plan to attend. Also, all spectators will be required to wear masks at all times. Failure to comply could result in removal from the facility. 

Consistent with University policy, these safety measures are based on continuing guidance from the CDC as well as recommendations from our resident health experts and partners from Testing for America. Similar measures are being implemented around the country.  

The remaining 2021-22 Delaware State basket home basketball doubleheaders are scheduled for: Feb. 7 vs. Howard, Feb. 9 vs. Maryland-Eastern Shore, Feb. 14 vs. Norfolk State, and Feb. 26 vs. Morgan State.
