New Gameday Rules at Kinnick Stadium
Big changes are coming to Kinnick Stadium this fall.
According to KWWL, "In a letter to Hawkeye fans, UI Athletic Director Gary Barta announced changes in tickets, seating and safety measures at home games this year."
The story indicated that if the Hawks play football, fans WILL be allowed in the stadium. But with that said, it won't look like a normal Saturday in Iowa City on gameday.
The stadium capacity will be cut down to just 10,000 - 15,000 spectators. All fans will have to social distance, and you won't be allowed in the stadium unless you're wearing a mask.
Another big change this year will be the elimination of season tickets. The University actually stopped selling season tickets at the end of June because of what was going on with COVID-19.
If you want to attend a game, all tickets will be sold as single tickets. At this point, the ticket prices have not been released. Students will be able to purchase discounted tickets and more information on that will be coming out in the next few weeks.
The Hawks will open the season at home against Maryland on September 5th. There will be a total of 5 football games this year in Iowa City. I'm guessing this will be a scalpers dream!

I just hope there's a season this year and everyone can stay healthy.
