Auburn Swimming & Diving to Not Allow Spectators For Fall Invites

Auburn Athletics and the swimming and diving program has announced attendance policies for the two fall events at the James E. Martin Aquatics Center.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and physical distancing measures involving the student-athletes, there will be no spectators allowed inside the aquatics center for the Auburn Fall Invitational (Nov. 18-20) as well as for the Auburn Diving Invitational (Dec. 16-19).

“We are certainly disappointed not to have fans in the stands,” Auburn head coach Gary Taylor said. “They make a lot of noise for us and really add to the overall excitement and energy of the meet. At the same time, we are extremely thankful and grateful to get this opportunity to race and dive competitively again.

“I know our fans will be supporting us near and far from all over this country and even others around the world. We’re very appreciative of that. We look forward to having them back in the aquatics center with us hopefully in the near future.”

Auburn Athletics remains focused on providing a healthy and safe environment for all patrons. Information related to attendance and health and safety protocols will be handled on a meet-by-meet basis, and updates will be provided when available.

The Tigers will host Florida (Jan. 20) and Florida State (Jan. 23) for dual meets in 2021.
