ISU to allow fans at football game vs. WVU; MBB & WBB games on Sunday

The following is a letter from Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard on Tuesday.

Dear Cyclone fans,

Coach Campbell and his team won a historic game in Austin, Texas, Friday and I could not be happier for Cyclone fans who have waited a lifetime to experience such a meaningful and impactful victory.

I am pleased to share that we are resuming our COVID attendance policies (as previously implemented) beginning with Saturday’s football game against West Virginia and basketball games Sunday vs. South Carolina (women) and DePaul (men).

The decision to allow fans to return to our venues was made after thorough discussion with university leaders after reviews of state and local COVID positivity trends and hospitalization rates.

Safety continues to remain our priority, and thus, it is critical for all fans attending our games to be diligent in following our mitigation measures. We have had great compliance to our policies all season and are confident you will continue to do your part. 

We will continue to monitor local COVID cases closely and adjust our plans accordingly if warranted.

Go Cyclones!


Jamie Pollard

Director of Athletics
