Cal Athletics Statement on Tightwad Hill for 2020 Cal Football season

November 4, 2020 

From Cal Athletics: 

We know that our fans want to support and cheer on the Golden Bears this season, but we also want everyone to express their enthusiasm responsibly. We call on fans to continue to protect the health of our community by wearing face coverings and maintaining physical distancing. Adherence to these policies has helped keep the spread of COVID-19 low in our area, including on campus and among our Cal Athletics population.

With no fans permitted in California Memorial Stadium, tailgating on campus is prohibited and gathering on Tightwad Hill is not allowed. By observing state and local public health protocols, which limits gatherings of people from different households, we can have a safe and enjoyable fall season for everyone.
