Auburn High announces football attendance restrictions

Auburn, AL – Auburn High School has announced that no general admission tickets will be sold at Duck Samford Stadium to begin the 2020 football season.

Attendance will be limited to the families of competition participants and will be limited to 25-to-30 percent of capacity. Duck Samford has a capacity of roughly 8,000 spectators.

“I hope our community understands that we’re trying to take care of the families of our participants – our students who are participating – first. At this point within our community, those are the only people who can purchase tickets and attend our sporting events locally,” Auburn City Schools athletic director Dan Norton told the Opelika-Auburn News. “Within our community, where we are right now is just making sure we let our students be students, and we allow our parents to come watch their kids do those things. At this point, there are not open tickets for the community.”

The school based its decision to limit capacity off guidance from the AHSAA, local medical personnel and the Alabama Department of Public Health.

For those fans who cannot score tickets, Auburn will stream their home games live on the NFHS Network. The subscription service will allow fans to view contests live or on-demand.

The Tigers visiting opponents will be issued a set number of tickets for their fans and will be limited to interacting with spectators on their side of the stadium.

Fifth ranked Auburn will kickoff the season August 21st at home against the Park Crossing Thunderbirds.
