The University of Arizona is building plans for athletic competition this fall.
Athletic director Dave Heeke says it's likely football, women's volleyball and women's soccer will be delayed by a few weeks to give the University more time to put protocols in place to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Plans are also underway to allow some spectators at the games.
"We've planned for everything from no fans to about a 50% capacity. We don't see anything larger than that at this point." Heeke said. "As we're trending today it would be considerably less than 50% capacity if we were to bring fans into the stadiums and arenas."
The University brought back 85 student-athletes during the summer for conditioning and strength training. Heeke says further announcements on the fall sports schedule can be expected in the next few weeks.
