Texas Tech director of athletics Kirby Hocutt unveiled plans Thursday to allow for Jones AT&T Stadium to seat around 25 percent of its capacity for football games.
Hocutt went on to say, “This will allow for added physical distancing of fans and students in each section,” Hocutt said. “Due to the limited capacity, tickets will be offered via three-game mini-plans in select sections as well as on a single-game basis. This will allow us to accommodate as many fans as possible throughout the season. Club and suite areas will remain as a season ticket.”
Texas Tech has an official capacity of 60,454, which means around 15,000 people per game. 25% percent is the same figure Oklahoma and Baylor are using for their home games. Iowa State set 50 percent as its upper limit in May.
This news comes days after the Big 12 announced its plans to play a 2020 season. Texas Tech is slated to open the year at home against Texas on Sept. 26.
