UPDATE: May 1, 2021.

Governor Ralph Northam has announced that sports and entertainment venues in Virginia may begin to operate with expanded capacity, and social gathering limits will increase beginning Saturday, May 15th.

The Commonwealth will continue to mandate mask-wearing and social distancing, even as commercial restrictions are further eased.

Recreational sporting events: The number of spectators allowed at outdoor recreational sporting events, such as GMI, will increase from 500 to 1,000 people or 50 percent capacity, whichever is less. 

However, we must still follow the guidance of the USEF Action Plan.  Beginning May 3, 2021, spectators will be allowed on competition grounds under the following capacity restrictions: A maximum of 40% of the ticketed spectator capacity for competitions that operate with a ticketed gate, OR a maximum of 400 spectators for competitions that do not ticket spectators, whichever is greater.

Our capacity at Great Meadow is roughly 10,890, of which 40% is 4356.  What this means is that we will offer general admission up to these capacity limits in 2021!


Once again, all visitors to the event must sign participant waivers for GMI and for the USEF/USEA.  Click the link below to sign the USEF/USEA Participant Waiver electronically.  The GMI waiver can be downloaded by clicking on the pdf image below.
