University of Maryland athletics on Monday released its plans to admit a limited number of fans for its spring sports competition, marking the first time in-person fan attendance will be allowed since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020.

The announcement comes days after the Big Ten Conference announced it will allow attendance for all remaining 2020-21 regular-season competition and spring football events, so long as local health guidelines permit. The University of Maryland has recently allowed a limited number of family members to attend sporting events, including men’s and women’s lacrosse games.
