Despite COVID-19 canceling sports for the foreseeable future, UNC students don’t need to be worried about their Carolina Fever points.
Carolina Fever is a student-led rewards program that provides incentives for students to attend UNC sporting events. The program awards the top 150 point-earners with two tickets to every home basketball game with the exception of the Duke game, where students get one ticket. This past season, the top 200 students also received a ticket to every home football game.
Each year students' points reset after the last men’s basketball home game. With the NCAA cutting the spring season short due to COVID-19 concerns, 13 planned events were cut from the Carolina Fever game roster.
“We've never really come across a time when we’re without sports," Carolina Fever co-chairperson Will Burton, a junior, said.
Senior Peyton Collete, a former Carolina Fever co-chairperson, said COVID-19 is uncharted territory, going back to the program's creation in the 1980s.
