A representative from the Clinton campaign told Spinnaker the public won’t be allowed into the Arena until 12:30 p.m. for President Barack Obama’s speech.

Originally, people were supposed to be let into the Arena at noon, but as that time neared, it was pushed back half an hour.

Further, once the Arena reaches the 6,927-person capacity, an additional 1,700 people will be let into the UNF Field House to watch President Barack Obama’s speech on large screens.

“The plan was always to have the Field House as overflow,” said UNF Director of Public Relations Joanna Norris.

At the time of publication, President Obama was still speaking in Miami at Florida International University.
