It’s hard to imagine that we are here given where we were at this time a year ago but ... we are! Washington State University announced today that GESA Field at Martin Stadium will be able to operate at full capacity for the 2021 football season after a 2020 season with just one home game and the gates shut to fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The school noted in a release to the media they’ll continue to follow all local and conference guidelines but didn’t go any further than that. Expect it to be similar to what the Seattle Seahawks announced today that vaccinated fans will not need to wear a mask in the stadium but unvaccinated fans will.

GESA Field will host 100% capacity for the 2021 football season. So let us be the first to say, WELCOME HOME! See you Sept. 4!

To say the least, this is a really incredible moment after the past 15 months, and not just for Washington State Cougars athletics. You can bet the city of Pullman and their businesses are relieved to hear this after an entire fall football season without tens of thousands of fans flooding into the Palouse for football games.
Season ticket renewals and seat selections are currently underway with single game tickets going on sale July 19th for CAF members and July 26th for everyone else.
Honest to God, the tears may flow when “Back Home” starts playing at the end of the first quarter. We can’t wait to see all of you guys.
