2021 Non-Season Ticket Information

The ongoing challenges related to COVID-19 require that we institute a physical-distanced limited capacity.

The Gators Ticket Office is currently allowing current season ticket holders that wish to attend games to choose seats for this year. Beginning in early February, general fans will be able to purchase seats based on availability.

All seat locations will follow the 6-feet physical distancing guidelines and will be sold in pods.

During games for the 2021 season, fans will be required to follow guidelines developed by UF Health and the SEC Medical Guidance Taskforce, which include the mandatory wearing of masks and other safety measures, to promote a culture of safety within the ballpark. Complete information about fan safety, health protocols, new ballpark amenities, concessions and game-day experience will be released at a later date.
