IF There is a U-M Football Season, General Public Can’t Buy Tickets
The University of Michigan has announced the ticketing policy for the upcoming 2020 football season - IF there is a season.
In a release Wednesday, the U-M Athletic Department says the capacity of Michigan Stadium will be reduced, or games could be held without fans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A final decision on capacity will be decided with the help of medical experts, University leadership, the Big Ten Conference, and government officials/agencies.
U-M Athletic Director Warde Manuel said,
"We have been working closely with a wide variety of leaders to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our student-athletes, coaches, fans and support staff associated with a game at Michigan Stadium. We will follow the direction that all of these agencies and experts continue to provide during this challenging time."
So IF the season happens and IF fans are allowed in, who gets to go?
U-M says all home games will be sold on an individual game basis, with sales limited to current season ticket holders and students. There will be no ticket sales to the general public.
Other things to note about ticketing for the upcoming (potential) season:
- There will be no football season tickets. Status as a season ticket holder remains unchanged, and season ticket locations will be retained for the 2021 season.
- For season ticket holders who elected to adjust their season ticket location/quantity during the June upgrade period, that new location/quantity will be retained for the 2021 season.
- Details regarding a potential individual game sale will be communicated once a decision on playing with or without fans is finalized.
- In the event that Michigan is able to have fans at any sporting event this season, all forms of ticketing will move to a mobile platform.
