ATHENS, Ga. — After last year’s game was canceled due to COVID-19 pandemic, Georgia’s annual spring football game is officially on this year.

The UGA athletic department announced that G-Day will be held on Saturday, April 17. No kickoff time has been determined yet.

A limited amount of fans will be allowed to attend the game with social distancing measures in place.

Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein will have the latest on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4 p.m.

The annual G-Day usually draws large crowds to Athens. A few years ago, more than 93,000 fans attended.

As the program did during the 2020 season, Sanford Stadium will be limited to 20-25% capacity. The COVID-19 safety protocols in place for last season will also be enforced for G-Day. That means fans will be required to wear a face mask and social distance.

Tickets to the game will cost $10 each and all proceeds will go to local charities.

Tickets will first be offered to donors, who can request tickets March 1-3. Faculty, staff and students will also have the opportunity to request tickets.

Any remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public on March 15. Tailgating will not be permitted on campus for G-Day.
