NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Vanderbilt University will allow a limited number of parents and family members of student-athletes to attend lacrosse games to start the 2021 season.
The decision to continue limiting attendance at athletic events is based on the advice and guidance of Vanderbilt’s public health partners, including the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and local public health officials. Vanderbilt will continue to evaluate the opportunity to welcome fans as soon as possible at games based on the evolving conditions of the pandemic.
Vanderbilt lacrosse will also play two games at Vanderbilt Stadium – home to the Commodores football squad – this season. In accommodation with the spring soccer season, the lacrosse matchups against High Point and Kennesaw State on March 7 and 10, respectively, will be moved across Jess Neely Drive to Vanderbilt Stadium. Start times for each game will stay the same — High Point at noon and Kennesaw State at 1 p.m.
In addition, all Vanderbilt home games, including those both at Vanderbilt Stadium, will be broadcasted live via the Vanderbilt Athletics YouTube channel. Former Commodore Michelle Sebastian will once again provide play-by-play for the Commodores.
The Commodores will commence their 2021 campaign with a road tilt against No. 2 Notre Dame at 11 a.m. CT Saturday. Vanderbilt will return for their home opener at noon Feb. 21 to take on No. 24 Colorado.
