About the Event
Like all things, the 2020 women’s soccer season was upended by the Covid-19 pandemic. The NCAA made the decision to move all fall championships to the spring back in August. The Trojans will play an abbreviated schedule this spring, with the NCAA College Cup being held May 13-17 in North Carolina. All players who compete this spring will not lose a season of eligibility and will still be able to play in the fall even if they are seniors.
The Trojans will play their 2020-21 spring season home games in the L.A. Memorial Coliseum. With the USC women’s lacrosse team also playing on the Trojans typical home, McAlister Field, soccer’s move to the Coliseum will reduce game conflicts, as well as wear and tear on the field.
In accordance with the Pac-12 and Los Angeles County Public Health Department policies, USC will not have fans in attendance at its home games this spring.
Limited media members will be allowed to apply for credentials to USC women’s soccer home games. Credentialed media members will only have access to a designated media area, and no in-person interviews will be allowed. All postgame and weekly interviews will be conducted virtually and upon request. Please contact Jacob Breems (Breems@usc.edu) for more media information and to apply for credentials.

In compliance with Los Angeles County Department of Public Health current health orders, spectators are not allowed. During spectator-free games, facility occupancy is limited to those who are essential for game day operations (e.g., TV/radio broadcast crews, event/operations crews, team coaching staff, medical staff, athletes, etc.). To the extent possible, all individuals admitted to the facility have been instructed to maintain a physical distance of at least 6 feet and access to the facility has been limited to certain areas.
During this public health emergency, Exposition Park will continue to perform its essential functions in service to the public. Some activities will be modified to accommodate social distancing practices and to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Exposition Park Management strongly encourages everyone to follow the guidance on general health and safety best practices from the California Department of Public Health:
- Stay home if you are sick or except to get medical care.
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.
- Minimize hand shaking or hugging.
For those wishing to take a break in the outdoors, public health officials are advising them to walk, run, hike and bike in their local neighborhoods and walk to parks. Most importantly, the public is being asked not to congregate in the outdoors. Everyone has the responsibility to “flatten the curve” by maintaining a social distance of 6 feet or more when recreating in the outdoors.
