We're making changes to training and facilities to keep our student-athletes, active students and Wolfpack fans safe and healthy this fall.

Athletics Taskforce

Keep Fighting for State

Student-athletes participating in football and basketball returned to campus in June. Students participating in cross-country, soccer and volleyball return in August and may start preseason practice at that time.

Student-athletes will train in small groups to reduce the risks of transmitting COVID-19. As restrictions on activities are lifted, groups may be combined, increasing the number of athletes training together until full team activities are permitted.

Athletics facilities staff will clean high-impact and high-density areas daily using an electrostatic sprayer. Facilities will maintain hand-sanitizer stations at major building entrances and high-traffic areas.

Below is a list of some possible adjustments to venue operations we are considering for the fall:

  • Elimination of the Walk of Champions and some on-field promotions.
  • Reduction of concourse activities.
  • Revision of tailgate safety planning with contractors and appropriate departments.
  • Identification of new sponsorship opportunities to support fall sports.
  • Compliance with heightened requirements for safety and public health.
  • New ticketing options being considered.
  • Priority purchase window for season ticket holders.
  • Student tickets assigned by zone/section with digital tickets.
  • Sale of prepackaged concession items only.
  • Visiting teams will comply with NC State’s expectations for safe conduct of game-day operations.
