Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, West Virginia University Director of Athletics Shane Lyons has announced that Milan Puskar Stadium and all other WVU athletics venues will return to 100% fan capacity this fall! In addition, pregame tailgating will be allowed!
In the release, Lyons says the following: “I want to thank our fans for their patience and understanding throughout the past year,” Lyons said. “Not only is this great news for Mountaineer Nation and our student-athletes, but it adds to the excitement and anticipation for Mountaineer football. A full stadium of 60,000 fans is exactly what our team deserves, and what our fans have been wanting.
“I also want to thank our University, local and state officials for their work throughout the past year. We certainly have been in good hands with their advice and leadership,” Lyons added. “I can’t wait for this fall to again see the rows of tailgaters, experience the thrill of the Mantrip and the roar of a packed stadium singing “Country Roads.”
