Radford University Athletics announced Tuesday afternoon that because of the COVID-19 pandemic attendance for the events of the 2021 spring season will be restricted to a limited number of family members of the student-athletes and the coaches.
Affected by the restrictions are baseball, softball, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s tennis and volleyball.
According to the athletics department, the restrictions were put in place in accordance with the guidelines regarding in-person gatherings of the Commonwealth of Virginia, local health officials and Radford University itself.
Radford Athletics has been working closely with the university, the Big South Conference and the Virginia Department of Health to provide a safe environment for all competitions this season. The health and safety of the student-athletes, coaching staff, community and fans is the top priority. The university will continue to monitor the situation as the spring sports season moves forward with hopes of allowing current RU students to attend the events later in the semester.
Fans can watch select Highlander games from home on the ESPN+ platform. Information about whether or not events are streamed are available on the respective schedule pages. Fans can always keep up with events via live stats, which can also be found on the schedule pages.
