2021 Outdoor NEICAAA Championships
Date: May 14 and May 15, 2021 The date chosen for the meet was determined last February based on the dates of the Division III and the IC4A Championships, as a majority of NEICAAA members are from Division III and many of the Division I schools participate marginally in the IC4A Championships. Had NEICAAA known the Division III Championships would be cancelled, a different date would have been selected which would also have accommodated the Big East schools.
Location: Veterans Stadium, New Britain, CT
There is a limit of 4,000 people that can be present including athletes, coaches , and spectators. NEICAAA will monitor the number of officials and spectators and asks for each school to monitor Covid restrictions.

Whether to compete men and women together or on different days
Whether to have trials or heats on time bases on preceding situation
Whether to compete with 32 running, 24 field event sizes or less
