All spectators must also be California residents and seating will be confined to blocks of six or fewer seats with members of a single household or audience group.
Spectators are also required to adhere to all physical distancing guidelines, sit only in their assigned seats, and wear face coverings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking.
With more than a dozen games left, baseball has the most home games left to play this spring. Other outdoor sports with remaining home competitions include women’s soccer, men’s tennis, women’s water polo and women’s lacrosse.
The Trojan football team’s Spring Showcase will be held at the Coliseum on Saturday, April 17, and will be open to approximately 5,000 family members, guests, and fans.
Football season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets. The game will be televised live on Pac-12 Network, with a kickoff at 1 p.m.
“With the exception of the Spring Showcase, USC Athletics events will not be available to the general public due to facility capacity limitations, and non-ticketed guests should not come to the competition venues,” the university said on its website. “USC will communicate with student-athletes and coaches regarding the process and protocols for their family members and guests to attend these outdoor home events.”MORE NEWS: Competition Rises For Wedding Venue Bookings As Couples Look To Tie The Knot Post-Pandemic
