EKU announces 20 percent seating capacity for home games



Following in the footsteps of the rest of the college world, only 20 percent of fans will be allowed inside Roy Kidd Stadium this fall.

Eastern Kentucky University made the announcement on Tuesday that they would be limiting their seating capacity for home sporting events at 20 percent. The Colonels’ home turf, Roy Kidd Stadium, holds roughly 20,000 at full capacity. Barring any changes from local governments or health departments, these guidelines will remain in effect for all EKU outdoor seating events this season.

Designated box seating will also be capped at 20 percent, or up to 10 people, whichever one is greater, according to EKU’s statement.

Similarly, the University of Kentucky has also placed a 20 percent limit on fan attendance, as has most of the SEC, with only Vanderbilt electing to play in empty stadiums.

EKU is currently scheduled to play four home football games for the 2020 season; Houston Baptist on Oct. 3, Central Arkansas on Oct. 24, Stephen F. Austin on Nov. 7, and Western Carolina on Nov. 21. Single-game tickets are still available and season ticket holders should expect to hear more news about their situation in the coming days.
