Fans can purchase one general admission ticket and stay for all four championship games. General admission tickets will cost $10.00. Club level seating will cost $20.00. Tickets will go on sale on Monday, December 6 through the University of Delaware.
All attendees at University of Delaware’s football athletic events ages 12 and older, must provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR coronavirus test taken within 72 hours of the event. “Full vaccination” means that guests have received their final COVID-19 vaccine dose at least 14 days in advance of the day of the game. Authentic proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be accepted as long as the test was taken within 72 hours of the day of the game through a medical or accredited company; please note that “at home tests” will not be accepted.
The University of Delaware has developed a digital system to allow external visitors to upload their COVID-19 vaccination or negative PCR COVID-19 test results before attending a UD-sponsored event. The Visitor Events Health Pass replaces the need for visitors to show paper copies or photo images of vaccination or test records when entering an event. The pass is integrated with the online UD Daily Health Check. To expedite event entry, fans should visit covidcheck.udel.edu in advance of event day and upload your proof of vaccine or negative test to the Visitor Events Health Pass, fill out the UD Daily Health Check on the day of the game, and show your green event ticket at the gate for entry. Fans wishing to show paper copies or photo images of vaccination or test records can still do so, in combination with a green check mark from the UD Daily Health Check for entry at the event.
