The Greenville Triumph announced on Aug. 10 they will be welcoming up to 2,000 fans to their games, beginning at the Aug. 15 match against Chattanooga.
The number of attendees allowed in will depend upon how social distancing algorithms impact the club’s ticketing system to safely seat fans.
“The safe return of fans in 2020 is a scenario our organization has been preparing for since we were forced to suspend the season in mid-March,” said Greenville Triumph Soccer Club president Chris Lewis. “We’ve worked extensively with local health officials, the governor’s office, Mayor Knox White, the USL and our stadium vendors to lay out a plan to provide an environment that puts the safety of our supporters, fans, team and staff first. While we know there will be those who aren’t ready to return to our matches yet, we can confidently say we’ve developed a stadium experience that will put those who do attend at ease during their time at Legacy.”
The soccer club has implemented the following safety measures to allow for fans to attend:
- Attendees are required to wear masks unless they are seated and actively eating or drinking.
- People entering the stadium will have their temperatures taken.
- Only medical and diaper bags will be allowed into the stadium.
- Touchless payment options will be available for parking and ticketing.
- Cashless purchases will be strongly encouraged at all points of sale within the stadium.
- Additional hand-washing and hand sanitizer stations have been placed throughout the stadium concourse.
- Seating, restrooms and high-touch areas will be disinfected before, during and after the match.
- Tailgating and supporter marches will be prohibited.
- No post-match autograph sessions or direct contact with members of the Triumph playing or coaching staff will occur during the 2020 season.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public Aug. 12 at noon. For more information, visit greenvilletriumph.com.
