WBU to allow spectators to begin spring semester

Wayland Baptist University will allow spectators – on a limited basis and with strict COVID-19 protocol – to its home athletic events to begin the spring semester.

Fans should self-screen and stay home if they are not feeling well. While on the WBU campus, fans are required to wear face coverings and practice social distancing at all times. There will be zero tolerance and non-compliance will result in removal from the venue.

At all WBU athletic events, capacity will be limited. Doors/gates will open one hour prior to the scheduled start time.

Ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for seniors/students. All WBU faculty, staff and students will be admitted free with proper ID. Due to restricted seating and limited capacity, no special passes will be accepted.

No outside food or drink is allowed inside Hutcherson Center, and no concession stand will be available.

WBU Athletics Director Rick Cooper is looking forward to having fans back on campus.

“We’re extremely excited to have the opportunity to be playing again with fans present when so many universities are either not playing or playing without spectators,” Cooper said.

He asks that spectators adhere to the COVID-19 protocol in an effort to maintain ongoing safety for student-athletes, officials and spectators.

“We want to continue to allow fans into our events, and the only way to do that is if everyone consistently adheres to the protocol,” Cooper said. “We thank everyone in advance for their cooperation.”
