CHARLOTTESVILLECapacity for Virginia’s Klckner Stadium will be capped at 8,000 and that figure will be in effect on Saturday (April 12) when the Cavaliers’ men’s lacrosse team hosts Duke at 6 p.m. in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.

Virginia athletics department officials have instituted the 8,000 in attendance cap to maintain a positive fan experience at the venue.

“We’ve been very pleased with the increased attendance at Klckner Stadium for soccer and lacrosse games over the last few years,” said Virginia’s Executive Associate Director of Athletics Jon Oliver. “We want to insure that we deliver the best possible game day experience for our fans and do our best to enable everyone in Klckner Stadium to see the action. The attendance for the men’s lacrosse game with Johns Hopkins last month and our men’s soccer game with Virginia Tech last fall brought about consideration of a capacity figure. Klckner Stadium is a wonderful venue for our lacrosse and soccer teams and our goal is to maintain a positive experience for our fans.”

A crowd of 7,579 attended the Virginia-Johns Hopkins lacrosse game on April 3. Last September, 7,906 fans attended Virginia’s men’s soccer game with Virginia Tech. The attendance figure for the Virginia-Virginia Tech men’s soccer game is a Klckner Stadium record.
