The Clarence T. C. Ching Athletics Complex

The University of Hawaiʻi is welcoming fans back to UH sporting events on the Mānoa campus as state and county COVID-19 restrictions now allow for 1,000 spectators at outdoor venues and 500 spectators at indoor events. Fans are required to be fully vaccinated (and upload their vaccination information at least three days prior to the event), utilize the LumiSight UH daily health check app to enter sporting events and wear masks at all times.

The first events with fans on campus will be the Rainbow Warrior football game on Saturday, October 23 against New Mexico State and the Rainbow Wahine volleyball match on Friday, October 29 versus UC Davis. Tickets are sold out to both events due to the limited crowd capacity.

Parking on gameday

Fans with tickets are encouraged to pre-purchase parking passes online prior to game day. For fans with tickets who do not pre-purchase, parking pay stations that only accept credit cards will be available in the Music, Law School and Klum Gym parking lots near the parking structure. There will be no gate attendants and vehicles without proper parking passes will be ticketed.

Fans should park in the parking structure on lower campus (enter via Waiʻalae Avenue or Dole Street). Access through the “Varsity Gate” to the lower campus from Varsity Circle is for VIP parking pass holders only.

For the UH football game on October 23, parking opens on campus at 3 p.m. The gates to the Clarence T.C. Ching Athletics Complex open at 4 p.m.
