THON 2017 Hits Capacity Ahead Of Final Four Hours

For the second — and likely final — time, the Bryce Jordan Center has reached its capacity, and will no longer admit spectators into the arena unless others leave. THON also reached capacity on Saturday evening, almost two hours before the Pep Rally started.

 

This is the second year in a row that the BJC reached capacity twice, again reaching capacity before the Pep Rally and the final four. This follows suit more closely with past THONs, after THON 2015 mysteriously never hit capacity. As has been the case in the past, those still trying to get into THON will be able to get in line, and will be notified if they are selected to enter the Jordan Center. From there, they will have 45 minutes to make it to Gate A  or B before their spot expires. Spectators can check the BJC’s status using this link.

Though you can still get in line, this close to the end of THON there’s no guarantee you will be admitted. We’ll update you if THON re-opens its doors, but if the past is any indicator, your best bet may be to get comfortable at home and follow along with the THON livestream and our coverage.
