CARBONDALE — Eleven days before its scheduled home opener against Southern Mississippi, SIU laid out its options for men’s basketball season ticket holders on Wednesday.
As of today, the state of Illinois is not allowing the Salukis to have fans at the games due to COVID-19 restrictions, the school said in a news release. The department now plans to only accommodate students and season ticket holders should those conditions change during the season.
Here are the two options the Salukis are offering season ticket holders:
This is the default option, so fans don’t need to notify the athletic department if they plan to opt in/buy tickets.
You will be notified by email if/when fans are permitted to attend games.
Saluki Athletics will determine which games and what seat location you will be assigned, based upon the social-distancing guidelines we are given. The department said it will do its best to seat you as close as possible to your original seat location.
For any games that SIU is unable to seat you, at the end of the season, you will have the option to receive a refund, make a tax-deductible charitable donation toward Saluki men’s basketball scholarships, or roll over the balance of your account to the 2021-22 season.
