Seton Hall Athletics issued a statement stating they are currently working with the Prudential Center to potentially host fans for their Mar. 3 game against the University of Connecticut.

“We have missed having our loyal fans in attendance at our games to provide the much-needed support to our student-athletes,” the statement said. “We are currently working with Prudential Center to review the ability to host spectators at our March 3 men’s basketball game versus the University of Connecticut, and we will communicate further details when they become available.”

Seton Hall has allowed immediate family members to attend games since early February, but there have not been fans in attendance for a Seton Hall men’s or women’s basketball game since March of 2020.

Indoor venues with a 5,000-seating capacity or more will be allowed to have 10% capacity for the Seton Hall basketball beginning Mar. 1 at 6 a.m. Outdoor venues including minor league baseball can operate at 15% capacity beginning next week on Mar. 1 as well.

Seton Hall University and Seton Hall Athletics have not made any announcements regarding fan attendance at basketball games or other spring sporting events. The only game fans would be able to attend at the Prudential Center this season under the new rules would be against the University of Connecticut on Mar. 3.
