to gauge at this point is the amount of TICKED off donors and/or ticket holders that aren't apart of the lucky "50%" that just say "screw it" and stay home and/or not donate, lower donations, etc....

I understand some schools are better off financially to weather a "50%" storm, but a number will also never or take a LOOOONG time to recover.


As long as those not in the 50% get a refund, no problems.

Let the remaining 50% go to the highest bidder, or go yourself.

All season ticket holders will still get tickets, just

not to all games if they institute a 50% or so limit. And a partial refund, if they choose to accept it. Otherwise the refund gets rolled into cumulatve donation history.

Actually, it's not very complicated.


Pssst...hey buddy, over here.

That's a good question.

One of my friends and fellow alumni said that the thought of sitting in a half empty stadium really have much appeal for him. He said he may just stay home and watch on tv unless somebody gives him free tickets.

Yeah, I think if they do a 50% thing, you would still be

The crowd is half the fun of being a a football game . But I don’t think that the way this virus is going they will ever allow 50% attendance .

Unfortunately, it will probably double the amount of people

who fall victim to the fake ticket scams. Wherever there is an increased demand for anything, criminals will rush in. Or those who lack Pappy O'Daniels moral fiber. Remember the $80 bottles of hand sanitizer when this Covid-19 pandemic was at its inception?

Based on the CDC's requirement of 6ft distancing...

I don't think 50% capacity would be feasible.

It would be more like 33%

It certainly won't double. There are going to be folks

who are scared to come to the games; others ticked off because they didn't get tickets in the first place; and others who don't think it will be fun to sit in a half full stadium.

Oh - and the people less afraid to come out (the younger folks) - are less likely to be able to afford a jacked-up ticket price...

Last year CU sold 61000 seaaon tickets. If 50% capacity was 41000 seated there may be 20000 that would not want to go and take a chance. I am undecided. They could offer season tickets in blocks of 4 or 5 games alternating seating assignments.

At 50% capacity, that would not meet the social distancing minimum. Furthermore, if limited to any percentage capacity below 50%, chances are we would not be sitting in our regular seats. That's the part that concerns me. If I have to change seats, I will definitely stay home and watch the game on TV. With my luck, that game would probably be blacked out in our area.

Under the circumstances I dont think games would be blacked out. I think they would have to skip 2 seats between to meet the minimum distance and stagger the rows. The biggest problem I see is getting everyone out at the end of a game. How do you dismiss by rows? At least, in Columbia they can start at halftime!

It's 6 feet between groups, not individuals

Most season ticket holders have two or more tickets. It's all doable, and the state may recommend 75% by that point.

Well demand will increase but will be offset, somewhat, by those who wont go to games due to covid. My guess would be that cupcake games will have a slightly higher price, low level ACC games will have a slightly higher price... then the bigger games will have more of an increase. Hard to say though.

Seems like a more workable and possibly as effective strategy would be to require masks. Afterall, we are outside with good airflow. Furthermore, if you set capacity at 50%, those 50% would cram into the best seats so that the people density would be the same as 100% capacity unless they installed some sort of barrier to prevent people from sitting next to each other.


I’ve herd they may use whoopie cushions
