More deets on how the G-Day seating plan is supposed to work:
Passes will direct fans to a corresponding section that will be near the gate they enter.
Gate 10, which is the entrance where construction is taking place under the Sanford Drive bridge, is the only gate that will be closed.
Brooks advises fans to enter the gate nearest the section they prefer to sit, and once in the assigned section there is no row assignment.
“Basically, there’s a science to it and we know from analytics the percentage of fans that will enter each gate through a normal football game,” Brooks said. “We take that method and that’s how we’re going to distribute the passes at each gate.”
Once passes in the 100 section are distributed, passes will be allotted for the 300 and 600 sections. Brooks said some parts of the 200 section will be available, but other parts of the section will be reserved. Normal use of the South Tower Sky Box suites will be used by suite holders and not available for fans…
On paper, at least, there does appear to be some method to the madness, but we fans won’t be sitting on paper. Let’s hope they know what they’re doing with this.
