Maryland Athletics has announced that it’s planning for sports competitions to take place in the winter and spring, and it hopes that fan attendance can be accomplished in a safe manner.

In an email sent to all students, the school said, “If we are able to host fans in the stands during those seasons, we will make every effort to safely maximize the student attendance at every game.”

Maryland football head coach Mike Locksley expressed support for a winter/spring season in a press conference Aug. 13 following the Big Ten’s announcement that there would be no fall sports.

“From the early things that [the Big Ten has] been able to discuss, I’ve been really pleased with knowing that it’s definitely feasible to do it, and while also keeping the player safety and health in the forefront of it and not playing too many games in one calendar year,” Locksley said. “So I feel good about the way that the infrastructure looks, and I anticipate us being able to pull it off.”
