Fans will be allowed at Memorial Stadium for the Orange and Blue spring game

Bret Bielema will make his Illini football coaching debut on Monday, April 19th for the Orange and Blue spring game, and a limited number of fans will be able to watch. The game begins at 7 p.m., and will feature a halftime ceremony honoring the Illini Basketball team and unveiling the Big Ten Championship banner.

Tickets are free, but it’s best to reserve them ahead of time. There may be walk up tickets that evening, but it’s not guaranteed.

COVID-19 protocols of masking and social distancing will be in place.
