The Iowa State Way

Damn, this is… harsh.

As of today, approximately 22,000 season tickets have been renewed for this fall. That leaves us approximately 8,000 seats to be filled. Because we need to make plans to accommodate those fans who will be allowed into the stadium (based on state and local guidelines), we have decided to implement the following:

  1. Any fan who does not renew their season tickets and make their Cyclone Club donation by June 12, 2020 will not be provided the opportunity to attend any games this fall unless it is later decided that we can safely exceed the 50% capacity restriction.
  2. The only fans who will have the opportunity to be in the stadium this fall are those who renew their season tickets and their required Cyclone Club donation (if applicable) by June 12, 2020. If you have not done so already, please contact our staff ASAP to complete those processes.

If you don’t pony up in the next couple of weeks, we’re not letting you in the stadium?   Because, plans?

Maybe I’m missing something, but it doesn’t seem like it would be hard to plan on 30,000 attending from the start and working down from there if you don’t wind up selling that many.  It would certainly be a lot better from a PR standpoint than shaking down fans with a pandemic.

    Arizona is already offering refunds…

    “Refunds also are available. Season-ticket holders seeking them must submit their requests in writing by Aug. 7 for football or Sept. 7 for basketball.”

    Does anyone actually go and watch their games?
