South Carolina AD Ray Tanner throws out potential stadium capacity for 2020 season
Wednesday has been a busy day for schools and pro teams to share early plans for stadium capacity this fall.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens both announced that they expect significantly reduced capacity if fans are allowed at all in the 2020 season.
Also on Wednesday, South Carolina AD Ray Tanner said during a radio interview that he thinks the number of fans allowed in Williams-Brice Stadium this year will be somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000:
Ray Tanner on 107.5 re: Williams-Brice capacity: "Probably 15,000 would be a number I would throw out. I’ve had some people who have studied that. It might get as high as 20. It might be no fans. We still have some time but not as much as we once did." @TheAthleticCFB

Williams-Brice Stadium’s official capacity is just north of 80,000, so this would signify a significant reduction in fans allowed inside.
As Tanner says, there’s still time to make the final decision, but that ultimate decision date is rapidly approaching.
