This is the kind of great news we needed today, finding out that the JUCO World Series is planning to be back in Grand Junction in 2021. The details were released on the JUCO GJ website describing how hard it was to cancel the Junior College World Series last year, but they are very excited to have it return in 2021 to Suplizio Field in Grand Junction.

The tournament will be held from May 29th through June 6th but like most things, it will look a little different this year due to COVID-19 guidelines in place by the Mesa County Public Health Department. The will not be a tournament banquet or other community events involving teams including the youth clinic and Challenger game.

Changes for Fans Attending the JUCO World Series in Grand Junction in 2021

Fans will be allowed to watch the action this year but it will be at a reduced capacity. To help control the number of fans ONLY reserve seating will be offered and those seats will be socially distanced from others. If you purchased a tournament pass in 2020 you will be contacted to renew seats. To stay in the know about more changes as we get closer to tournament time visit the Juco GJ website.

JUCO World Series in 2021 is Taking Lots of Effort

The JUCO tournament committee wants to thank the Mesa County Health Department, City of Grand Junction, and NJCAA for putting in all the time and effort to make this event happen in Grand Junction.

As a fan of sports and wanting to see people come to Grand Junction and spend money, I am very excited to hear that the JUCO World Series is back in 2021.
