Georgia was guaranteed $4.25 million for the game but needed to sell 30,000 tickets it was allotted, according to the contract. Virginia also has the same guarantee, Stokan said. Decisions on fans will determine the new payouts that will have to be negotiated with the schools.
“Obviously, with a contracted amount, there won’t be that kind of revenues available and in addition we’ll probably take on some expenses that we didn’t have budgeted,” he said.
That includes providing masks for those that don’t have them since they will probably be required.
The stadium is being modeled at 25, 30 and 50 percent capacity, Stokan said.
“There will be some conversations with the medical community, the Falcons, the teams, but if we’re at 25 percent, we’re probably at about 17,500,” he said.
In the end, it’ll be up to the conference. The only way this game still goes off is if the SEC elects to play a ten-game schedule with two non-conference games.
