Western Michigan University announced a plan to have Waldo Stadium at full capacity for football season in 2021 Monday.

The Broncos also announced that season tickets are now on sale, while individual game tickets have not been made available yet. Season tickets can be purchased at wmubroncos.com/tickets or by phone at 888-4-WMU-TIX.

The decision came after Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that the state would no longer require any capacity limits on outdoor events beginning June 1. On July 1, all indoor capacity limits from the state are set to be lifted as well, though the university has yet to make a decision on attendance policies for indoor sports.

Last season, the Broncos had no fans in the stands for a six-game football schedule that only featured MAC opponents. WMU allowed family members at athletic events in the spring.

The first opportunity for fans to pack Waldo Stadium since 2019 will take place Sept. 11 at 5 p.m. when the Broncos host Illinois State for the home opener. That contest will air on ESPN3 after the Broncos’ season opener at Michigan (Sept. 4, noon) will play on ESPN.
