SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Athletic Department announced plans for full capacity football games at Rice-Eccles Stadium for the 2021 season.

Utah Athletics made the announcement on Thursday, May 27.

The Utes open the 2021 schedule against Weber State on September 2.

“We are incredibly excited to be planning for a sold-out, full-capacity environment at Rice-Eccles Stadium for the 2021 football season,” said Mark Harlan, Director of Athletics. “We are so grateful for our passionate, loyal fans, who have stood by us and supported our department through a very challenging time. I’m also thrilled for our student-athletes, coaches and staff, who have worked so hard and maintained a high standard throughout everything, and will again be able to experience the roar of the home crowd. We can’t wait for Sept. 2 when we open the expanded Rice-Eccles Stadium and unveil the Ken Garff Performance Zone with 51,444 in the building.”
