ASU's seating plan announced
Arkansas State University Athletic Director Terry Mohajir announced Friday the Red Wolves' seating plan for the 2020 season, stating that Centennial Bank Stadium will be limited to 12,000 seats, or about 40% capacity.
The stadium, which typically seats 30,406, will have limited seating to accommodate for social distancing. The university's plan was approved earlier this week by the Arkansas Department of Health.
Mohajir said in a news release that season-ticket holders will get first priority on tickets, and any remaining single-game tickets for ASU's six home games will be sold 10 days prior to the team's home opener against the University of Central Arkansas on Sept. 19.
ASU is set to kick off its season at Memphis at 7 p.m. Central on Sept. 5.
