Report: Iowa planning to welcome fans back to Kinnick Stadium in 2021
There’s more optimistic news regarding attendance for football games in the B1G.
According to David Eickholt of 247Sports, Iowa is expecting to welcome fans back to Kinnick Stadium for the 2021 football season. Spectators were not permitted to attend games during the 2020 season, per B1G rules.
Right now, there is no comment on how many fans or what percentage of Kinnick Stadium Iowa plans to fill for the upcoming year. Welcoming any number of fans back to the venue would be a promising sign, though.

Iowa is the latest to reportedly plan to allow fans back for football games next fall. Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a video to donors that fans are expected to be back at Camp Randall Stadium for the 2021 season, as well.
Nebraska’s Bill Moos hopes to see “a lot of fans” at Memorial Stadium in time for Nebraska’s spring game later this year, though there have been no guarantees on that just yet. He also said he believes B1G stadiums will permit a large number of fans for the season.
