OGDEN, Utah – Weber State Athletics announced that men’s and women’s basketball games at the Dee Event Center will be played without spectators through at least Dec. 31.

The announcement takes into consideration the rising case numbers in the area and aligns with Weber State’s commitment to the well-being of its student-athletes, coaches, staff and the community.

“Although we will start this season without our great fans in the Dee Event Center, we are excited for our student-athletes to begin competition,” said Weber State Director of Athletics Tim Crompton. “From the beginning of the pandemic, the leaders of our institution have made the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and the community at large a priority. They have done this while making every effort to provide ways to move forward. We anticipate and are prepared to welcome our fans back into the Dee Event Center when it is safe to do so. Until that time, we realize it will be a different experience for our student-athletes, their families, and our fans.”

Weber State leaders will determine whether spectators will be allowed to attend games in 2021 at a later date. Games can be seen during Big Sky play on Pluto TV and All men’s basketball games can be heard on 103.1 FM “The Wave.”

The men are scheduled to start the season on Wednesday, Nov. 25 at home against Adams State. Their full non-conference schedule will be announced soon. As of right now, the women are scheduled to open the season on Tuesday, Dec. 15 against Pacific.
