Alabama announces stadium capacity, mask policy for 2020 football season
As the United States continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly every football stadium that will host games this fall will do so with no fans or severely reduced capacity.
On Tuesday afternoon, the Alabama Crimson Tide announced their plans for Bryant-Denny Stadium this fall.
Per Alabama reporter Cecil Hurt, the stadium will be approximately 20% full on game days and masks will be required for all fans. Additionally, no tailgating will be allowed on campus:
NEW: Alabama has announced its ticket plan for the 2020 football season including approximately 20 percent capacity and a facemask requirement at BDS and no tailgating activities on campus. UA announced the policy in an e-mail sent to Tide Pride members.

That seems to be in line with what a lot of stadiums across the country are doing if they’re allowing fans.
No, it won’t be the same atmosphere we’ve come to expect at Bryant-Denny Stadium, but hey, at least the plan is still to play 10 games this fall!
