Increased capacity allowed for home outdoor events following new physical distancing guidelines

Under guidance from UF Health, the University of Florida is shifting physical distancing guidelines from 6 feet to 3 feet for outdoor sporting events, beginning this week.

Spectators are still required to wear masks or face coverings, except when actively eating or drinking.

Capacity at Gators baseball, softball, tennis, and track events on the Gainesville campus will expand accordingly, increasing from an estimated 1,700 fans to approximately 3,000 for baseball, and from around 500 fans to approximately 850 for softball.

Updated capacity plans for non-ticketed outdoor Gators Athletic events, including tennis, lacrosse, and track and field will be announced at a later date.
