After a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19, West Virginia University will hold its annual Gold-Blue Spring Football Game, presented by Encova, on Saturday, April 24, at 1 p.m., at Mountaineer Field at Milan Puskar Stadium. A portion of the proceeds will once again benefit WVU Medicine Children’s.
The stadium will operate at approximately 25% capacity as part of the health, safety, and wellness measures being implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All fans should self-evaluate prior to arriving to the stadium. Fans who might be sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should stay home and contact a physician.

Face coverings should always be worn while fans are inside the stadium with the temporary exception of when eating and drinking. Face shields should only be worn in combination with a face mask. Fans should provide their own face coverings.
Regardless of vaccination status, fans are asked to practice physical distancing at all times whether that’s in the ticket lines, at the gates, in line at concessions or restrooms, and while in the seating areas.
All gates will open for entry, starting at noon. All seating is reserved and no general admission seating is available.
