Per state guidelines, attendance must be limited, all spectators must be California residents and seating will be confined to blocks of six or fewer seats with members of a single household or audience group (audience groups must be limited to a total of 6 persons made up of a maximum of three household units).

All spectators will be required to adhere to all physical distancing guidelines, sit only in their assigned seats, and wear face coverings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking.
The Spring Showcase will kick off at 1 p.m. PT and will be televised live on Pac-12 Networks. It will feature four 12-minute quarters of live contact, with the Trojan roster split into Cardinal and Gold squads.

These locations are situated around most of the circumference of the venue.
