The following are the new parameters regarding spectators at Exeter athletic events. We look forward to seeing you!

  • As of Friday, Jan. 21, we are pleased to welcome the Phillips Exeter Academy internal community — current students, faculty, and staff — to attend winter athletic events (at this time, no spectators will be allowed in the Thompson Field House during track meets).
  • As of Wednesday, Jan. 26, we will welcome parents of Exeter students to join in the stands. Internal community members and parents will be separated in the bleachers.  
  • Proper masking is required at all time. Spectators who do not comply with proper masking, will be told to leave. 
  • Absolutely no food or drinks are allowed in any athletic venue.
  • All PEA spectators wishing to travel to an away game in support of Big Red should check the opposing school’s website as most are limiting spectator capacity. Schools may have different policies than those in effect at PEA, including prohibitions on unvaccinated spectators, required proof of vaccination to enter campus, or more strict regulations regarding access to campus buildings.
  • Most home games will continue to be streamed on Exeter Live.
