(Cleveland) - The Cleveland State Vikings are back in action after cancellations due to COVID, and they're hoping to build up some fan support. That's why Thursday night's 7 p.m. game at the Wolstein Center against Purdue Fort Wayne will be open to fans free of charge.
CSU was to have played IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) and UIC (Univerity of Illinois Chicago) this week, but both games have been canceled. Purdue Fort Wayne was willing to step in at the last moment.
CSU is still scheduled to play Purdue Fort Wayne next Wednesday. CSU says Thursday's match-up is "aligned with the (Horizon) league's intent to allow healthy teams to compete, including pairing opponents that may play more than twice during the regular season."
The Vikings have been on a COVID-related pause to the program since December 15th, when it was announced their games against Duke and Kent State had been canceled.
