In the interest of maintaining the safest possible environment for student-athletes, coaches, officials and staff, fan attendance at Bemidji State athletic events will be limited to an allotted number of invited family members and guests. In addition, a limited number of current BSU students will be admitted. All fans in attendance will be required to follow current MDH and local health guidelines. With the number of schedule changes this season, we are currently not planning to sell tickets to athletic events. Our primary goal is to continue to provide our student-athletes with the best opportunity to complete their seasons in the safest manner. Go Beavers!
