Gopher Athletics announced on Tuesday that it plans to operate at full capacity for live sporting events when teams return to competition for the 2021-22 academic year. 

The first ticketed sports slated to welcome full capacity at its venues are soccer, volleyball and football.

“We are excited to safely welcome fans back into our venues,” said Director of Athletics Mark Coyle. “We will follow all University, local and state guidelines, and we are looking forward to our fans once again providing a tremendous advantage for our Gopher student-athletes when they compete on campus. We are so thankful for our fans, donors and sponsors who helped provide necessary resources for our student-athletes last season, but we missed seeing and hearing them at games. We cannot wait to welcome everyone back to campus in a few months, while still providing our fans with a safe and enjoyable experience.”

Minnesota Gopher Athletics also anticipates a return to traditional fan activities surrounding its football games, which includes tailgating, the team’s Ski-U-March arrival, Gopher Garden activities, performances from the University of Minnesota Marching Band, spirit squads and more. 

The 2021 season will also include a return of the popular Gopher Pass, which will be available for purchase on July 1. Single-game tickets for all seven home games will be available exclusively to Gopher Score members on July 13, with tickets available to the general public on July 15. Flexible Mini Plans will also be available for fans to purchase multiple games of their choosing beginning on July 13. Away game tickets for Minnesota's five road games can be requested beginning on June 24, with tickets being allocated based on Gopher Score rank four weeks before each game. 

Minnesota will also be transitioning to mobile tickets for all ticketed events on campus. 

Additional information and tutorials will be shared directly with ticket holders. This transition to mobile tickets allows for improved ticket delivery and management features.
