Starting on January 28, Wyoming athletics will be allowed to have a limited number of fans in attendance for home athletic events. Two thousand fans will be allowed inside the Arena-Auditorium for basketball, with an additional 170 fans allowed in the UniWyo Federal Credit Union Sports Complex.

Governor Mark Gordon made the announcement of lessening the state’s COVID-19 restrictions on January 21, following a drop in statewide cases.

Tickets for the January 28 Cowgirl game against San Diego State will be first available to season ticket holders on Jan. 25, at 10 a.m., with tickets available to the general public on Jan. 27, at 10 a.m.

Wyoming basketball has had an up and down year. Starting the season off hot, going 7-1, with wins against non-conference teams like Oregon State and Denver. Since then the pokes lost four straight against conference opponents, losing one each to Fresno State and Air Force, as well as getting swept by Boise State in Laramie.

Having fans in the stands should help ignite some fire in the players. Opposing players cite the altitude, as well as the raucous fans, as one of the determining factors that make Wyoming one of the toughest places to play in.

The world saw what a limited, but committed, fan base can do to an opponent last week in the AFC Divisional round game between the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens, when the small, but loud, crowd in Buffalo forced numerous mistakes to happen. Even in a limited capacity fans may prove to be the spark that the Cowboys need.
