The St. John’s Athletic Department announced Thursday that the 2020-21 men’s and women’s basketball season will tip off on Nov. 25 without spectators in attendance due to current restrictions imposed on mass gatherings by New York State and New York City due to COVID-19. St. John’s is hopeful that improving public health conditions will permit fans to attend games later in the season.

In order to offer existing season ticket holders maximum flexibility, St. John’s Athletics has crafted three options for fans who have already purchased tickets and made their required contributions to the Red White Club.

· Donate season ticket payments and/or required contributions to the Red White Club as a tax-deductible gift. While St. John’s Athletics remains steadfast in its commitment to Red Storm student-athletes, the inevitable reduction in revenue streams will undoubtedly present a challenge to provide the necessary resources to compete at the highest levels on and off the field of play. Making a donation will help address these financial hurdles, as well as earn valuable Red White Club priority points.

· Rollover season ticket payments for impacted games to the 2021-22 men’s basketball season to preserve your seat locations for next season.

· Request a full reimbursement of season ticket payments.

In the event that spectators will be permitted to attend St. John’s Basketball home games later this season with limited capacity, a priority will be given to season ticket holders who elect to donate their payments for impacted games to the Red White Club and/or rollover their payments for the 2021-22 campaign.

St. John’s season ticket holders can chose their selection by clicking here. An email confirmation from the Red Storm Ticket Office will follow after submitting the online form.

In light of beginning the season without spectators, St. John’s Athletics is offering fans the opportunity to purchase an official Red Storm cutout to help fill the stands at Carnesecca Arena. Prices for cutouts begin at $59 with upgrades available to include an autograph from Head Coach Mike Anderson and ensure a lower level location for $85. St. John’s students can also purchase a cutout to ensure their presence inside Carnesecca Arena for a discounted price of $10. To purchase, click here and be sure to review the fan cutout guidelines before emailing your photo to redstormsports@stjohns.edu.
