The Iowa State Cyclone Football season will open the 2020 season on Saturday, September 5th. The catch is….the stadium will be limited to approximately 50% capacity. ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard issued a statement on Tuesday explaining how that will work. Take a look at part of the statement below.
“First, we fully anticipate playing football this fall. In order to do that, we have to overcome several initial hurdles (i.e., getting the players safely back on campus, officially starting team activities, conducting preseason practice, etc.) before we can truly start to assess this fall’s season. As of today, we fully anticipate playing football in Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 5.
The second question is more challenging to answer. Attendance at Jack Trice Stadium would be limited to approximately 50% capacity in order to meet the current guidelines established by state and local officials. Those guidelines may be adjusted as time passes. Right now, we are planning as though the capacity of our stadium would be limited to 30,000 spectators.”
