TUCSON, Ariz — Arizona Athletics released a statement on Wednesday night saying it will limit fan attendance at upcoming events due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

"With the safety and well being of students, faculty, staff and our community as a top priority at the University of Arizona, Arizona Athletics supports the NCAA's and Pac-12 Conference's decisions to limit fan attendance at upcoming championship events in addition to all home Arizona Athletics events until further notice. The athletics department is actively working to enact new refund procedures for fans and staffing policies for those affected by these new restrictions."

It is believed that only essential staff and certain family members will be able to attend events. The move comes after the Pac-12 Tournament and NCAA Tournament will play its games without spectators in order to prevent the spread of the disease.
