The program said single-game ticket holders will be contacted about refund information for Wednesday’s game after Jan. 5. Season-ticket holders will be contacted bout their options later this season.
The next time the Illini are home (Jan. 6 vs. Maryland), either proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test (within 72 hours of the game) will be required at State Farm Center.
Illinois isn’t the first Big Ten program to deal with COVID issues so far this season. Wisconsin and Ohio State have canceled games in the past week due to the virus.
