TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — This week, things are looking a little more normal across Florida State's campus when it comes to sports as the Seminole soccer team opens their season.

FSU is allowing 400 fans to attend Thursday's match against Notre Dame and after weeks of uncertainty, the Seminoles are more than excited to play.

Head coach Mark Krikorian said he's impressed with his team's maturity in handling the adversity this year, but he wouldn't expect anything less.

"I think these unsettled times are times when you can measure the character of your group and so oh," said Krikorian. "I think we have a lot of kids with a lot of character and I think they're all trying to do the right thing. I think around the country there's a lot of these athletes who truly want to play. They want to go out and compete and I think they're all trying to stay as healthy as they can, not only for themselves but for their teammates."

Thursday's season opener is set for an 8:00 p.m. kick.

Gates will open one hour prior to the game and masks are required for all fans in attendance.

All seating will be general admission throughout the entire stadium with enough spacing for appropriate social distancing amongst groups of fans.

The first 150 fans to the facility will be admitted free of charge on the day of the game. The first 100 students with a valid student ID will be admitted free of charge as well. The remaining 150 tickets will be held for home and visiting team guests.
