Oklahoma Eyeing 25% Capacity for Football Games

NCAA Football: Army at Oklahoma

After the Big 12 Conference confirmed this week that they will play college football this fall, now the question is can fans be in attendance?

It looks like the answer, at least for some Big 12 schools will be yes.

One day after Texas Tech announced it plans to have 25% capacity at football games this fall, Oklahoma Sooners AD Joe Castiglione told reporters on Friday he is also looking at the same numbers, saying, “We’re modeling roughly 25% capacity; our medical experts and facility experts were involved in building space models; adds those percentages could change.”


Gaylord Family Stadium holds over 86,000 people, meaning they could fit about 21,000 fans into home games this fall. This would be vital to keep the Norman economy afloat beyond 2020.

The Oklahoma Sooners are set to open the season on September 12th against Missouri State and then will open Big 12 Conference play on September 26th against Kansas State.
