UBCO Heat welcome back fans for this weekend's games

UBCO welcomes back fans

UBCO welcomes fans back as university soccer returns after a 23-month pandemic-induced pause.

University sports action is set to return to the Okanagan this weekend as the UBCO Heat women's and men's soccer teams are set to host the Thompson Rivers Wolfpack at Nonis Field on Saturday and Sunday.

Fans are welcome to watch the games but there are health and safety considerations.

The department of athletics and recreation is requiring all fans attending the games to be fully vaccinated, excluding those under 12. The move will allow for more than 100 fans in the designated viewing area at Nonis Field.

"It has been 23 months since we were last able to showcase our women's and men's soccer teams at home, and I'm so excited for our student-athletes to once again play in games that matter and to have fans in the stands to cheer them on," said Tom Huisman, UBCO's director of athletics and recreation, on the return of sport to campus.

Fans who want to watch this weekend's games at Nonis Field are being asked to show proof of full vaccination through their BC vaccine card or by showing an ID and their vaccine record. For all remaining home games, only the BC vaccine card will be accepted.

"Staff will be set in two locations, at the entrance to parking lot B and at the top of the walkway down to the field behind the gymnasium, to check the vaccine status of fans entering the designated viewing area," says Huisman.

Kickoff on both Saturday and Sunday is set for 1 p.m. for the women's game and 3:30 p.m. for the men's game.
