Football Capacity Plans for 2021
Penn State confirmed full capacity today. https://gopsusports.com/news/2021/6/1/football-athletics-to-be-at-full-capacity-in-the-fall.aspx
The Auburn game is gonna be insane
It needs to be a full stadium whiteout. Even if Auburn isn’t ranked when they come here. This will be the first time an SEC team has played in Beaver Stadium in 10 years.
It checks all the boxes. National TV game at night against a big opponent (Penn State may also not be ranked!), Early fall which is always better for the Whiteout than the Orange-out we see in November.
Any word on when student tickets will go on sale?
You’ll finally get to experience that after a lost year in your first at PSU!
Stadium capacity... 100% Capacity with your mom... 1.03^-21 %
Is it going to be anything but 100% everywhere? Unless the US sees another outbreak of the virus (which is unlikely due to past exposure and vaccines) there is no reason for a school to have any limitations.
the way Oregon and our dumbass governor have been lately I'd be shocked if they announce 100% capacity
Damn her for trying to keep people alive. Unbelievable.
When it achieves nothing except destroying businesses, yeah, unbelievable.
damn the Texas governor for killing so many people these past couple months by opening the state, oh wait
Add Notre Dame to the 100% list!!!! Full capacity, tailgating back!! https://und.com/notre-dame-outlines-football-game-day-planning-for-2021-season/?fbclid=IwAR0E50hKuKKp_VKQ29Xa5qBCfsQFsHhaXa9FIceGv84JxEpUPdgG1KJ-MPQ https://www.facebook.com/112669694704/posts/10159165353854705/?d=n https://twitter.com/fightingirish/status/1397597397673459712?s=21 https://247sports.com/college/notre-dame/Article/Notre-Dame-football-full-capacity-fighting-irish-165789453/ https://www.onefootdown.com/2021/5/26/22455108/notre-dame-football-news-will-have-full-attendance-for-season-covid-vaccine-tailgate-ceremony-irish
LETS FUCKING GO!!!
Georgia Tech announced plans for 100% capacity and full in-person tailgating Source: https://ramblinwreck.com/georgia-tech-football-to-be-at-100-capacity-for-2021/
I'll be there!
Can't wait to visit Atlanta!
What’s the point of pinning this if this is never gonna be updated?
Pennsylvania's COVID capacity restrictions lift May 31st. Penn State is following state guidelines, and is assuming 100% capacity unless told otherwise by the state. https://www.si.com/college/pennstate/football/penn-state-modeling-several-capacity-options-for-beaver-stadium
SC will be at 💯!
Also, 100% want to believe that’s a real Muschamp quote and I’m not gonna bother checking.
At least the attendance will be. Team has already turned on Beamer so the team won’t be at 100%.
What do you mean, the team has already turned? Based on what?
Sorry for non-cfb news, but Omaha announced yesterday the College World Series will be 100% capacity!
we'll be 100% . doesn't mean we will actually fill 102,000 seats though.
BYU announces full capacity https://www.deseret.com/2021/5/21/22447780/byu-football-planning-for-full-capacity-at-lavell-edwards-stadium-in-2021-byu-cougars-tom-holmoe
[Georgia expects 100% capacity for 2021 season](https://247sports.com/college/georgia/Article/Georgia-Football-Sanford-Stadium-full-capacity-2021-season-165821637/)
TCU is 100 percent capacity and full spectrum for all outdoor sports. Effective immediately. https://twitter.com/JDonati_TCU/status/1395129015304925188
I want to see at least one School say limited capacity with its chest out too.
I bet it'll be one of those darn hippie schools in California.
Or a school with historically lackluster attendance. They can claim 100% of their limited capacity was filled, with that capacity decided based on ticket sales.
Miami will look to increase capacity to 20%.
The Miami FC (that play at FIU) aren't playing with fans; I'm not sure if that's a University request or not. [FIU hasn't stated what their plan is for the fall](https://floridapolitics.com/archives/430665-majority-of-florida-college-football-teams-plan-for-full-capacity-this-fall/).
they didn't notice much difference at kU
My money is on Hawai'i (who are already limited by not being able to play in Aloha Stadium); even if it's just a limit on away attendance.
[Vanderbilt plans for 100% capacity in the fall](https://vucommodores.com/three-kickoff-times-scheduled/)
Vanderbilt had capacity restrictions?
I guess the better question is do any programs at all have any plans not to do 100% or hesitancy to do 100%? Hopefully not
If I had to bet on a school, I'd guess Boston College. Doubt they won't be 100%, but they might be the most likely.
To be fair, does a school like that typically get more 50-60% capacity anyways?
The only school out of the pac 12 that has announced anything is Utah. It will be interesting where the others fall.
[Arizona has announced 100% capacity today. ASU has announced that they’ll make a future announcement.](https://cronkitenews.azpbs.org/2021/06/03/arizona-wildcats-football-to-host-capacity-crowds-asu-progressing-in-that-direction/) Colorado has cleared large venues. The Rockies will be at full capacity starting June 28th. The Avs and Nuggets are between 90 and 95% due to league rules regarding fan distances from team benches. CSU has announced 100% capacity, so expectations are CU will do the same as soon as Boulder County signs off. Not sure about the California, Oregon, or Washington teams though.
The teams in California, Oregon, and Washington are the teams I worry about.
Yeah. I know California is allowing MLB full capacity, so I remain hopeful.
Washington is supposed to be fully open by June 30th, so I think we'll be full. Just about to 70% vaxxed of eligible people already.
Boulder County shouldn’t be an issue considering indoor bars are packed to fire codes right now
Waiting on Pac12 like 💀
CA is "fully open" starting June 15... meaning all mask mandates, capacity limits, etc. end. Despite the caution we've seen from the universities, they really need money and the games are all outside, so I am betting that they don't have capacity restrictions. Stanford would be the only one who maybe chooses to because it always feels like they play things most cautiously of everyone. Also... I can't speak for college football fans universally, but on the west coast it seems that they over-index on higher education (duh, huge alumni support), and that part of the population is significantly more likely to be vaccinated, so that would be another justification.
All great points. I am just (stoned) wondering who in the conference would have the *lowest* vaccination rate among their fanbase (or those most likely to attend their games in-person)? WSU maybe? Probably not the Cali schools, CU, or UW...just some (stoned) couch-thoughts.
Probably Wazzu, considering vaccination rates in the 509 area code. Although, that will be offset by liquor disinfecting everything, both inside and out. Possibly Oregon State, but I hear macaroni salad and chainsaws are approved homeopathic treatments for COVID.
I was between Wazzu and ASU...I think the Sundevils are used to getting vaccinated for other things, so this might be just business-as-usual for them.
Probably not CU. Boulder county is now above 60% for full vaccination, 70% for residents with only a single shot in a two shot series. They don’t break those figures down by age, but anecdotally students have been on board with getting vaccinated.
North Seattle (where UW is) is at like 80% vaccination among adults, and the state is supposed to be fully re-opened by June 30th or when the state figure is above 70% - whichever comes first. I'd be shocked if Husky stadium wasn't at full capacity unless something really dramatic happens.
Dewine said he expects Ohio state to be at 100% capacity
Maybe that means we'll be at 100% too
Probably. He might have just said for college sports in general.
Its very likely with how all OH universities acted during the pandemic
Decent rumor coming out that in the next 48 hours Iowa will announce full capacity AND beer sales in entire stadium for first time ever. EDIT - Unsure who downvoted this but beer sales were announced today as expected.
With Iowa joining UNI in beer sales, it will be interesting to see if ISU follows the same path and starts beer sales either this year or next at the latest, but Pollard in the past has said that they will not allow beer to the general public.
Oregon State Athletic Director Expects 100% capacity Though whether or not masks or tailgating rules will be in place is TBD, which in my opinion, is BS, there shouldn't be a masks or tailgaiting restrictions outdoors with the amount we will have vaccinated by then, https://www.bendbulletin.com/sports/oregon-state-ad-scott-barnes-anticipating-100-percent-stadium-capacity-in-2021-says-bowl-game/article_c29bfbab-b559-536e-b5c0-ab53eb7ccee6.html
Let's go. But I agree we shouldn't need masks for tailgating outside
I'm gonna say that if you cram 10s of thousands of people in a stadium stopping tailgating isn't gonna do crap to prevent covid.
USC has just announced 100% capacity. https://usctrojans.com/news/2021/6/15/usc-trojans-football-home-games-full-capacity-fans-coliseum-california-reopening-tickets.aspx
Unofficial that UC will be 100%. The Reds already announced 100% capacity on June 2nd. UC will probably come out with an announcement at some point
Nipp at night is, in my biased opinion, *the* most underrated atmosphere in college football
I'm so excited to go to games this year. Need a roaring and raucous Nipp at Night. I made it to a few back in 2019 but I missed the UCF game due to work and was kicking myself in the butt for not going. It looked so awesome. Also missed the UCLA game due to drill. So I missed two biggest crowds that season. I did go to the Temple game and sit in club seats for like 25 dollars which was really cool.
Well, you get to go to UCF this year!
Oh I'm definitely calling work off for that game this year. Gotta make sure that I can get to it this year. I'm going to IU and ND too so I'm really excited. Already have the tickets and hotels reserved. So giddy for this season
Nebraska just announced full capacity
Duke confirmed full (or at least no longer limited) capacity this week per Duke Athletics Instagram post. [https://www.instagram.com/p/CP3N81aN7f3/](https://www.instagram.com/p/CP3N81aN7f3/)
Illinois will be at 100% capacity https://twitter.com/illinifootball/status/1403355465476620289?s=21
Indiana at [full capacity](https://twitter.com/iuhoosiers/status/1405978676236374033?s=21)
Unofficial word is that ND will go to 100%.
Whitmer lifted the restrictions on outdoor stadium capacity https://www.si.com/college/michigan/football/michigan-football-michigan-stadium-gretchen-whitmer-big-ten-football
This is all I want in this world.
Actually never been more excited to hear... &#x200B; But it's just the price I pay Destiny is calling me Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside. I cannot wait for this...
U of M is being cagey about whether they'll go 100% capacity. I'm sure they will, but they're usung the opportunity to promote vaccines.
Maryland is at 100% for all sporting events: [https://twitter.com/TerpsFootball/status/1396828422429716482](https://twitter.com/TerpsFootball/status/1396828422429716482)
[Kroger Field will be at 100% capacity this fall.](https://kentuckysportsradio.com/football-2/uk-expects-full-capacity-at-kroger-field-for-2021-football-season/) Let's go. EDIT: [Official confirmation from UK](https://twitter.com/UKAthletics/status/1397654727777820678?s=19)
[Utah at 100%](https://twitter.com/Utah_Football/status/1397984633707372546?s=20). Actually “more” than 100% because they will complete the stadium expansion. Hell yes.
Is this the first pac 12 school?
Iowa: https://twitter.com/ChadLeistikow/status/1398339412061298690 “All systems go. We are preparing for and planning for 100% capacity,” Iowa athletics director Gary Barta said in an interview Friday with the Des Moines Register.
Hell yeah! Full Kinnick I cannot wait.
According to the AD it’s 100% no official release yet, but as soon as I can I’ll get it to you.
Arizona State confirms full capacity: https://thesundevils.com/news/2021/6/7/sda-working-towards-full-capacity-for-football.aspx
UCLA at 100% https://twitter.com/UCLA/status/1404901291508211713?s=19
This is hugely surprising. I thought CA was still in lockdown mode. I would guess that this thread is kind of pointless because I doubt any stadium will have any restrictions by September
California is basically entirely out of lockdown as of yesterday. The only restrictions that remain are for "mega-events" of over 10,000 people, where there are some mask or vaccine requirements, but not capacity limits.
I don't think there's been anything official from Iowa State yet but our AD Pollard's been tweeting out season ticket sales statistics for this fall and IIRC one of those tweets included a "Jack Trice will be rocking this fall" (or something along those lines) so I'd take that stuff as pretty big hints that Iowa State will have full capacity this fall
Pretty sure he said that we’d be 100% during the Tailgate Tour
If you can find an official source or news article let us know.
Found it [here](https://www.widerightnattylite.com/2021/5/20/22445424/jamie-pollard-announced-full-stadium-capacity-and-hillside-seating-for-the-2021-season)
I imagine (U)Iowa would be the same - although I could see Iowa City/Johnson Co. being more cautious than necessary.
Iowa State's already made it official. No idea about Iowa.
Baylor full capacity for outdoors effective immediately https://baylorbears.com/news/2021/5/18/football-baylor-athletics-announces-100-capacity-for-outdoor-events.aspx

Anyone know how to scrape reddit titles from r/CFB? We had posts for most teams when announced. Alabama announced 100% super early. Everyone had to say before they sent out season ticket packages.
Bama football leading the country as usual! I for one am elated that things are going back to normal. We can’t all stay in the basement forever. All you reddit guys need to wash your ass and brush your teeth! Reality is coming back.
https://cyclonefanatic.com/2021/05/iowa-state-expects-full-jack-trice-stadium-in-2021/ Iowa State's made it official!
Pennsylvania has no restrictions on May 31 except for masks. The 70% number is for masks only.
Hell yes, really pumped about making the trip with my buddies
So if no one is wearing a mask they can sit next to each other but if they are they have to leave 3/10 seats empty? Not trying to be snarky I just think I’m missing a key point
I think it's just you can do whatever you want but you have to wear a mask unless vaccinated. The mask thing is an incentive to get the shot. It's a little confusing because they announced this right before the CDC updated their guidelines, and then they said minutes later that they're following the CDC recommendations. So first it was restrictions on may 31 except for masks until 70 pct vaccinated. Now it's you don't have to wear a mask if vaccinated, and I guess no one has to wear a mask once we hit 70 pct along with no other restrictions.
Yup, gonna get that fixed. e: Def going to blame the awkward way that SI updated their article initially.
Cool, I was doubting whether I had read the announcement from PA right or not lol
No, the article [which we linked to as the source] is just clunky because one paragraph ends: > A six-foot distancing requirement remains in place. which would limit capacity to about 20% (as the article explains lower). The article then states: > According to a statement, restrictions related to "gatherings, restaurants and other businesses" will end. Which could just be capacity limits (and not necessarily distancing), as I initially read it (hmm, readit, could be a good name for a social media site) because the next paragraph (after the tweet from Tom Wolfe): > According to Barbour's email, a continued distancing requirement would limit Penn State to hosting about 20,000 fans at Beaver Stadium.
[Louisville will be planning to be at 100% capacity for season](https://twitter.com/espn680/status/1397985688822464519?s=21)
Better add Georgia too. (Source: https://www.si.com/college/georgia/.amp/news/georgia-football-full-capacity-2021)
LSU is 100% Wondering what UCLA will be. I’m still interested in making that trip.
[Virginia Tech has announced 100% capacity](https://roanoke.com/sports/college/va_tech/virginia-tech-announces-lane-stadium-will-be-at-full-capacity-for-2021-season/article_204bfe42-cd39-11eb-8661-8775a42a1b73.html)
Maybe easier at this point to say who’s not going to be at capacity
Boise State will go to 100% capacity for all sporting events, including football. [Announcement from Boise State Football on Twitter](https://twitter.com/broncosportsfb/status/1397285096365850625?s=21)
Missouri has also announced they will open at 100%
Clemson is planning on full capacity. https://www.tigernet.com/update/Clemson-intends-for-Death-Valley-to-be-full-this-fall-37511
[The Steelers & Heinz Field are planning for 100%,](https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.wtae.com/amp/article/steelers-planning-full-capacity-heinz-field/36418937) so it can likely be assumed Pitt will also be operating at 100% capacity.
That write up for VT is kinda misleading. Not 100% yet and I'm hopeful that they remodel the restrooms and other parts to make it more clean for all. This would stand to go with all the other venues after having limited access for over a year.
yup, we've removed that one for now, but will probably add it in soon.
Not sure if this counts as an official announcement, but Ross Bjork said [in February](https://theeagle.com/sports/texas-a-m-planning-to-have-full-kyle-field-next-football-season/article_556234f6-7664-11eb-8335-9f182b3bffd3.html) we are going to be at full capacity this fall.

Tennessee 100%. https://twitter.com/vol_football/status/1404877981584003075?s=21
The Utah Jazz are at 71% attendance for the playoffs. I’d assume BYU and USU will have full stadiums. I also assume the Utes will too if the pac lets them.
Seems to be getting better by the game too
Georgia Southern planning on 100%: [https://www.wjcl.com/article/georgia-southern-anticipates-100-capacity-at-paulson-stadium-for-football-season/36335014#](https://www.wjcl.com/article/georgia-southern-anticipates-100-capacity-at-paulson-stadium-for-football-season/36335014#) I've seen UGA is planning on 100% but can't find anything rn.
Baseball was 100% this weekend so I would imagine an announcement for football and other sports will come soon
Maryland 100 percent!!!!

NC is lifting restrictions here in June I think, so I’d bet you’ll see all the NC universities make the announcement around then
I forget how much Iowa’s going back to, I think about 50-60% if I’m guessing I’m not sure
This is entirely based on nothing. They’re selling as many tickets as they can but haven’t announced capacity.
I stand corrected, thanks
Illinois at 100% SIUC at 100%
