AState reveals early plans for football season
Currently based on Phase 2 Guidelines for Arkansas outdoor venues, which is 66 percent capacity.

Among what we know.

1. All Season Ticket holders are guaranteed a seat, and will be given priority seating over anyone else.

2. Indoor and Club seating will remain in place at 66 percent capacity. All concessions will still be sold as normal.

3. Likely some single game tickets will be sold. Though not many. Tickets will have a suggested entry time and gate on them, but fans will not be required to enter at that time.

4. Social Distancing will be clearly marked, though like most current state regulations, it will be done on the honor system (In other words, we ask people to social distance, but there's no enforcement.

5. There is no decision on masks yet. Face Masks are still controversial here and not as widely accepted. There will likely be a suggestion to wear them, but I doubt it will be an enforced regulation.

RE: AState reveals early plans for football season
As we move into July, I’m hoping all schools and states release a plan.

I’m hoping by then we have moved on to something else and COVID-19 is over. I’ve got a kid headed to college this year, and like all parents I want him to have good traditional experience.

there is no indication that it will be over anytime soon. alabama had 880 positive announced yesterday and over 1000 today. with people getting out the numbers are going up not down. flu season is over and covid has not magically gone away. they need to be encouraging people wear masks so we can keep it as manageable as possible until they get a vaccine.

What about the other third of club seat holders? I imagine that group is expecting something for this year.

If ASU has sold more than 2/3rds of their indoor and club seats, for this season, that is a good problem to have. If that is the case, they'll figure it out.

This post is strange from a non Ark St fan and not helpful.

Thankfully we’ve not sold those very well. We’re sort of copying what is apparently the unofficial state motto during this. “If your not comfortable, no one Is making you get out” I think we’re very much hoping a bunch of people choose to stay home

Skins. Arkansas relies on college football for too much of its economy. I don’t know what others will do, but we are playing

So if no one else shows up to play does this mean we might have an undefeated season? :)

I wish you were wrong but I know you're not.

I suppose my point was, that with all the uncertainty, I really doubt ASU has sold 2/3 of those seats. Chiefsfan confirmed that in his subsequent post. This obviously will be an issue, if schools like Clemson, Alabama, etc. put similar limits on capacity.
With the NBA, NHL, MLS, and MLB all playing without fans will college football really be the first to have fans in the stands? NFL regular season starts after college football, but they will have to make some decisions on fan attendance before that.

The anticipation is yes College Sports will be. With the major leagues most of those teams are in urban cities which likely have far tighter restrictions. College Football is going to be mixed depending on the state. NY might ban fans but Florida probably says go with capacity limits
