Fan Attendance Policy

Fall 2020 Fan Attendance and Ticketing

The Cumberland Phoenix Athletic Department is excited to welcome back our student-athletes for competition. Our goal is to provide a safe opportunity for the Cumberland University family to cheer on the Phoenix this fall. To help keep our campus safe for our students to enjoy, we have adjusted our attendance guidelines and seating for all of our facilities.

Fan Attendance

Cumberland University will be operating its facilities this year at half the capacity to effectively social distance and keep our student-athletes safe.

Screening & Personal Protective Equipment

All fans attending games on campus will be screened prior to their entrance into the facilities. Screening locations will be at the entrance of each facility. The screening will consist of a temperature check and a COVID-19 questionnaire.

In accordance with Cumberland University campus policy, those in attendance for athletic events on campus will be expected to wear a mask, or appropriate face covering, throughout the venues at all times.


This year we are introducing an online ticketing program through HomeTown Ticketing that will allow for fans to purchase tickets prior to their arrival to campus. Those tickets will be available for redemption or purchase at during the respective window prior to each home event. 

Spectators will be expected to maintain six feet apart to comply with county, state, and CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and large gatherings.


At this time we will have no concessions available at Cumberland men's and women's basketball games.


To keep our student body safe, fans are encouraged to not interact with athletes at the conclusion of an event. This is done to help protect our entire Cumberland Community from parents to our staff, coaches, and student-athletes.

Streaming & Live Stats

Most of our athletic events will be available to watch via stream if you are unable to come to campus for an event. All streams will be provided for free in 2020-21.
