MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (Oct. 27, 2020) – West Virginia University and its Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will welcome fans back to Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium for the first time this fall on Friday, Oct. 30, when the Mountaineer women’s soccer team plays host to Kansas. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET.
The stadium will operate at 25% capacity as part of the health, safety and wellness measures being implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The athletics department, in conjunction with the University’s team of medical professionals and appropriate parties, will not only cap attendance at approximately 400 fans for the contest, but will also take additional steps to increase fan safety.
Facemasks will be required of all spectators entering the stadium and should be worn at all times. Additionally, to provide a contactless entry, WVU has switched to mobile ticketing for all fans this season.

A limited amount of WVU student tickets also will be made available at the Mountaineer Ticket Office, located at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium. The office, as well as the stadium gates, opens at 6:30 p.m., on game day. WVU students are admitted for free with a valid WVU Student I.D.
