ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico United will be playing their first home match of the season – in Colorado. The team made the announcement Tuesday morning.
Tickets for the Sept. 19 match will go on sale this Thursday, Sept. 10. Officials said tickets will be limited to 1,000 in an effort to keep fans safe and socially-distanced at Weidner Field in Colorado Springs.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the United family together again in a safe and responsible way,” New Mexico United President Peter Trevisani said. “For a few hours next weekend, Weidner Field will become an extension of the Land of Enchantment, and we look forward to providing fans, players, and coaches with the home field experience they’ve been missing all season. To do that, we need your help in following COVID-safe guidelines, and working together as New Mexicans to keep each other safe and healthy.”
Attendees will be given a free bottle of hand sanitizer and a mask. Each attendee will have to sign a voluntary pledge to abide by COVID-safe guidelines – including wearing a mask and remaining six feet apart.
The team will also be conducting contact tracing for every individual who buys a ticket, and attendees may schedule a COVID-19 test by contacting the New Mexico United offices after the trip.
New Mexico's latest public health order allows New Mexican's to travel to and from Colorado without a 14-day quarantine.
Tickets will be available Thursday morning here.
