Report: Texas considering lowering maximum allowed capacity at games in 2020
It was just last week that there were talks about Texas A&M and Texas having 50% capacity in football stadiums this fall.
However, it appears that isn’t going to be the case, as the COVID-19 pandemic is still very much a factor in American lives.
In fact, according to HookEm.com, the Longhorns are looking at moving down to approximately 25% capacity this year:
Texas officials are now looking at the possibility of a 25% stadium capacity — about 19,119 fans — this football season at the request of school leaders, interim UT President Jay Hartzell wrote Wednesday in a campus-wide email.
With a little over a month until the start of the season, it’s possible that these guidelines and suggestions change.
We’ll see what happens moving forward.
