IOWA CITY, Iowa (KWWL) - In a letter to Hawkeye fans, UI Athletic Director Gary Barta announced changes in tickets, seating and safety measures at home football games this year.

The announcement comes with the caveat of games being played and fans being allowed, both of which are subject to change with COVID-19 health recommendations.

In the letter, Barta says that capacity at Kinnick Stadium will be reduced to 10,000 to 15,000 fans, who will all be required to wear a mask and seating will follow six-feet social distancing guidelines.

There will be no season tickets and all tickets for the five home games will be sold as single ticket games. All tickets and parking passes (also on single-game basis) will be mobile.

While details are still being finalized, students will have access to a reduced-seating student-section.

Fans will maintain social distance throughout the stadium by selecting tickets in groups of two or four.

Barta says that the single-game prices will be announced soon and will be priced by stadium section and game.

Season tickets and per-seat contributions will roll over to 2021, but if fans want a refund or to make a donation, they can email tickets@hawkeyesports.com by Aug. 14.  

The Hawkeyes' season is set to start on Sept. 5 at home against Maryland. View their full schedule here.
