One day after Gov. Phil Murphy signed a new order allowing indoor sports venues to resume limited capacity, for the first time in nearly a year, Seton Hall announced they would host fans at the upcoming men’s basketball game against Connecticut this Wednesday.
NEW: Effective immediately, indoor and outdoor collegiate sports practices and competitions may allow two parents or guardians per participating athlete as spectators.
☑️Numbers cannot exceed 35% of the indoor room’s capacity
☑️Social distancing must be maintained outdoors

Seton Hall released two application portals; one for the public and another for Seton Hall students. The university gave priority access to students, men’s basketball season ticket holders and Pirate Blue Athletic Fund donors.
Tickets are free for students with a valid Seton Hall Student ID, while tickets for the general public are $40 per seat, which will be charged upon submission of the application. Fans who are not selected to attend the game will receive a full refund. Those who are selected will be notified by March.
🚨 TICKET INFO ALERT! 🚨

The seats will be available for groups of up to four people, and fans that reside in the same household can sit together. The groups of four may be divided into two groups of seats if necessary.
The Prudential Center can hold anywhere from 16,000 to 18,000 fans under normal circumstances. But with the new guidelines, the arena allow between 1,600 and 1,800 spectators. Seton Hall has yet to announce how many fans they will allow in attendance of the game.
Immediate family members of players and coaches of both teams will be allowed, limiting each player to two members.
