With the revised football schedule commencing in less than a month, Beaver Stadium season ticket holders have been apprised of their options by Mistress Sandy Barbour. Right now, the plan is for no fans to attend Penn State home games.
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has restricted outdoor gatherings to 250 people, hence the decision by Barbour, who went on to say, “Therefore, under the current conditions and current state orders, our fall sports events would be conducted without fans in the general seating areas of our facilities. We continue to work with the Governor’s office to discuss, and possibly be prepared for the opportunity to have spectators at our fall Penn State sporting events.”
Sandy offered three options to season ticket holders:
- Convert the 2020 season ticket purchase into a tax-deductible donation
- Roll over to 2021 season tickets
- Request a full refund
I suppose this is a reasonable approach, giving people a nice range of options. Ticket holders can take a chance on the situation in Harrisburg loosening up if they wish. Otherwise, if they don’t want to gamble, they can get a full refund.
