General Guidelines

Respecting the guidance of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) and out of an abundance of caution in the interest of fan safety, Tabor College is releasing its fan attendance and ticketing policy and procedures for the fall sports of football (Joel Wiens Stadium) and volleyball (Tabor Gymnasium). Tabor soccer games will not use tickets for entrance to matches.

To allow for social distancing and other safety precautions, we will be reducing the capacity of both the stadium and gym seating availability.

Joel Wiens Stadium will be limited to 750 fans (25% capacity) on the west (home) side of the stadium and 100 fans (20% capacity) on the east (visiting) side of the stadium.

The Tabor Gym will be limited to 400 fans (33% capacity) for volleyball matches. These numbers are subject to change based upon the current status and guidelines of Marion County and Tabor College.

All game tickets for Bluejay football and volleyball events will be issued electronically through tabor.edu/tickets. There will be no walk-up ticket sales at the stadium or the gym. Tickets will be verified at the facility’s point of entry by Tabor Athletic Staff. 

Spectator Guidelines

Fans are expected to abide by facility signage and instructions while in attendance at Tabor Bluejay fall sporting contests.

Guests with a fever, cough, sore throat or other flu-like symptoms are asked to not enter the stadium or gym.

Guest who have traveled to a high-risk area for Covid-19 or had contact with a person known to be infected with Covid-19 are asked to not enter the stadium or gym.
