Georgia announces return to full capacity at Foley Field
Georgia baseball will get to play in front of a packed house before the 2021 season is over.
On Wednesday, UGA announced that Foley Field will allow 100 percent capacity for the Bulldogs’ series against Ole Miss May 20-22, the final series of the regular season.
“We have been steadily preparing for 100 percent capacity at sporting events for next year and after seeing how some professional teams in our area have handled expanded attendance successfully, we believe this is the perfect opportunity to increase to full operations,” athletic director Josh Brooks said via a Georgia release. “This is one positive step to bringing Bulldog Nation back to campus to celebrate and support our teams.”
Attendance had been capped at 664 but will now return to up to 3,200. Georgia’s announcement notes that SEC event protocols will remain in place. Spectators will still be required to wear masks or face coverings when entering and moving about the facility.
After dropping two of three at Arkansas, Georgia is 28-18 overall and 11-13 in the SEC. The Bulldogs are on the road again this weekend, facing Florida in Gainesville. UGA will end its road swing Tuesday at rival Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The Dawgs are 19-11 at home during the 2021 campaign.
The SEC Tournament begins May 25 in Hoover, Alabama.
