Notre Dame to limit football game attendance for 2020 season
NOTRE DAME, Ind.—The University of Notre Dame on Monday announced its game-day policies for the 2020 football season.
Attendance at Notre Dame’s football games will be limited to 20% or less of Notre Dame Stadium’s regular capacity.
Notre Dame students will receive priority and once students who want tickets have them, remaining tickets will be available for the university’s faculty and staff.
The university said in the announcement that the approach to game-day policies "is designed to promote safety by limiting attendance to those individuals who are current members of the Notre Dame campus community and accords with the expectations articulated by St. Joseph County health officials regarding limiting attendees to residents of the local area."
Exceptions to the policy may be made for family members of student-athletes, the university said.
Attendees will be required to wear face masks and practice social distancing.
Tailgating will not be permitted.
The stadium will use mobile ticketing instead of traditional, printed tickets.
More guidelines for Irish football games will be released at a later date.
The Irish are scheduled to play their first home game on September 12 against Duke.
