FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KAIT) - Bud Walton Arena will look a lot different for Razorback basketball in the 2020-21 season.

Athletic director Hunter Yurachek announced Wednesday that they will limit capacity to 4,000 fans for men’s and women’s hoops games in order to follow ADH guidelines.

“If you are headed to Bud Walton Arena this season, please note that doors will open one hour (60 minutes) prior to tip-off for both men’s and women’s basketball. Just as in football, tickets will be mobile-only for the upcoming seasons. Tickets and applicable parking will be distributed approximately a week prior to the first games. Also note that the clear bag policy remains in effect as will a security screening including metal detectors. Masks will be required at all times, other than when actively eating or drinking. In addition, protocols used in football (i.e. social distancing, enhanced arena sanitization etc.) will be also utilized at Bud Walton Arena as well.”

The first game these protocols will be in place is for the Red-White Game on November 12th. Only UofA students will be allowed to attend the Arkansas men’s basketball scrimmage that night.
