The safest way to assure a seat at Iowa State football games inside Jack Trice Stadium this fall is to purchase a season ticket. The sale of single-game tickets for 2020 is unlikely.
Because we expect to reach the 50 percent capacity limitation through season ticket sales, we do not anticipate selling single-game tickets unless the capacity limits are raised,” athletics director Jamie Pollard announced Tuesday in a message to fans on Iowa State’s website.
Pollard said approximately” 22,000 season tickets had been renewed for the 2020 season that’s scheduled to start Sept. 5 against South Dakota. Because of strict social-distancing guidelines following the coronavirus pandemic, the 60,500-seat stadium will seat 30,000.
That leaves us approximately 8,000 seats to be filled,” Pollard said in the statement. 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.
The only fans who will have the opportunity to be in the stadium this fall are those who renew their season tickets and their required Cyclone Club donation by June 12, 2020.” He urges fans to please contact our staff ASAP to complete those processes.”
The statement re-emphasized something Pollard said on last week’s virtual Cyclone tailgate tour — that fans not renewing 2020 season tickets will have first rights on their seats for 2021.
