Boise State Football Still On? Season Ticket Holders Get COVID-19 Update
If 2020 has taught me anything, it's not to get too attached to things I look forward to. Right now football, both college and NFL, are pretty much all I have left.
Several local television personalities including Maggie O'Mara at KTVB and Bryan Levin at Channel 2 shared screen shots of an e-mail sent to Boise State Football season ticket holders outlining likely changes they're planning to roll out in order to safely move forward with a 2020 football season.
Many of them deal with physical distancing, masks, locations of hand-sanitizing stations and other pretty run of the mill COVID-19 safety measures. The one bullet point that grabbed our attention almost immediately was this year's no-entry policy. Because Albertsons Stadium has historically been alcohol free (with the exception of the Garth Brooks concert and Basque Soccer Friendly) there's usually a mass exodus at half time to go crack some cold ones in the tailgate lot.
With the new policy in place, Albertsons Stadium will now offer beer and seltzer for sale in their main concession areas. That's pretty big news in Bronco Nation.
Now that season ticket holders have a preview of the university's plans to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection at Boise State football games, they've got a few options of what they'd like to do with their tickets this year including opting out of this season. However, if that's the option you choose you need to inform the university through the link in the e-mail you received by July 20.
The e-mail notes that the items outlined in the e-mail are subject to change as more information becomes available. Policies and procedures will be updated in real time through an online Fan Guide to be posted on the Broncos website.
