UTEP Athletics: Fans allowed at basketball games until further notice

A limited number of fans will be permitted in the Don Haskins Center for UTEP basketball games until further notice, beginning with this weekend’s women’s matchups versus North Texas.

The Miners will host the Mean Green on Friday and Saturday, January 15 and 16.

 “Miner Nation did a great job this past weekend for the men’s games and we feel confident that fans will continue to be mindful of the protocols and act with diligence and care during future contests,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said.

“Our Special Events and game day staff have also done a tremendous job of fostering a safe and welcoming environment. At the same time, we have to remain vigilant in following the CDC guidelines and being respectful of our fellow Miners – we have to take care of each other. Picks up and masks up!”

Fans are reminded that masks/face coverings are required while in the Haskins Center and on the UTEP campus. Additional COVID-19 protocols for basketball can be found online.

All fans are highly encouraged to read and be aware of these policies to ensure a safe and enjoyable game day experience.

Conference USA COVID-19 guidelines only allow for a maximum of 15% capacity for attendance. As a result, the 2020-21 men’s basketball season is sold out through season tickets and no additional single-game tickets are available for purchase.

All men’s basketball season ticket holders are welcome to attend. Season ticket holders who are unable to use their tickets are encouraged to transfer them to a friend, notify the Eisenberg Family Ticket Office so their tickets can be made available, or sell the tickets through a verified resale vendor.

Tickets are still available for women’s basketball and this includes both five-game flex plans and single-game options. For ticket information and sales, fans can call (915) 747-UTEP, email [email protected] or visit

 All tickets and parking passes for the 2020-21 season will be managed digitally and can be accessed by going online. Season ticket holders who have questions about their tickets or parking passes should call the Eisenberg Family Ticket Office at (915) 747-UTEP or email [email protected]. As a reminder, all seats are reserved and fans must remain in their assigned seats.

Due to COVID-19 protocols, the Haskins Center tunnel entrance is closed to the general public this season. All fans should enter the arena through one of four entrances located at the concourse level.

UTEP students, faculty and staff who plan to attend games are encouraged to take advantage of UTEP’s proactive testing program and obtain a negative result before coming to the venue. For more information, click here.
