Iowa makes announcement on attendance plans for Kinnick Stadium
Kinnick Stadium may not be its typically-intimidating self during the 2020 season, but Iowa is still planning on allowing a small crowd to attend games this season.
Thursday, the University of Iowa Athletic Department announced that it plans to allow between 10,000-15,000 fans for Hawkeyes home games this fall. Tickets for Iowa’s five home games will be sold as single-game tickets according to the release, not as a season-ticket package.
Below is a list of the changes Iowa plans to make, per its release.
- Main stand and premium seating in Kinnick Stadium will follow six-feet social distancing guidelines.
- Fans will be required to wear face coverings and additional mitigation strategies have been implemented.
- All tickets and parking passes will be mobile.
- University of Iowa students will have access to single-game tickets in the student section. The capacity will be limited and distribution plans are still being finalized.
- Parking lots will be restricted to 50 percent capacity and open four hours before kickoff.
- To provide more access to the limited number of tickets, there will not be season tickets or season parking this year.
- New single-game prices will be announced soon and they will be priced by stadium section and game.
- Fans will select tickets in groups of two or four, socially distanced throughout the stadium.
- Seat locations will be best available at the time of purchase, by section.
- Parking will be sold on a single-game basis with one spot per account.
The Hawkeyes are scheduled to open the 2020 season on Sept. 5 at home against Maryland. Iowa will also host Nebraska, Northwestern, Michigan State and Wisconsin.
