NEW YORK — Following Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent announcement allowing partial spectator capacity at sporting events in New York State, the BIG EAST Conference has announced that a limited number of tickets will be provided to each of the participating teams in the upcoming BIG EAST Tournament, scheduled for March 10-13 at Madison Square Garden.   
All tickets will be specifically designated for use by the members of each school’s official travel party in order to permit families and guests of student-athletes, coaches and team staffs to attend games. 
Each person attending the games will be required to comply with all applicable New York public health regulations and MSG policies. 
There will be no public sale of tickets to this year’s tournament.
“In determining the ticket policy for this year’s tournament, the Conference consulted with our member schools, the MSG leadership team, and New York State and New York City public health officials,” said BIG EAST Commissioner Val Ackerman.  “As New York sporting events start to re-open, we believed it was important to offer access to one of the most prominent events in college sports to those closest to the participants, while striving to protect the health and safety of all involved.   We are excited to participate in the reopening of the Garden and look forward to returning to a full house next year.”
The Tournament begins on Wednesday, March 10, with a First Round tripleheader that starts at 3 p.m. ET.
