The following guidance was in place for the 2022 season. Please check back for updates as we get closer to the 2023 event date.

As we approach the event date, COVID-19 continues to be a concern even as New York State generally is experiencing some decline in cases and hospitalizations. We strongly recommend that all attendees get vaccinated and boosted prior to attending the event. In keeping with the focus on safety at all FIRST® events, we are exercising an abundance of caution in the interest of protecting the health and well-being of our teams, their families, guests, event volunteers, vendors, arena staff and the general public.

To that end: protective masks covering nose and mouth must be worn while in the MVP Arena by all attendees regardless of vaccination status. Masks may be temporarily removed while seated to eat lunch. Anyone unable or unwilling to wear a protective mask should watch the event remotely via the webcast.

Please do not come to the Arena if you are feeling ill in any way.

As the Arena has seating capacity far in excess of the number of expected attendees, we recommend that teams and spectators exercise appropriate social distancing.

As local conditions evolve, we may have to revise these guidelines, even on short notice. Please refer back to this page for updates.
