PROVO, Utah — Fresh off its 55-3 opening night win over Navy on Monday night, the BYU athletic department had more good news to share with football fans.

Officials announced Tuesday that 6,000 fans will be allowed to attend all Cougars home games this season, beginning with the opener Sept. 26 against Troy.

Fans who attend games will be split into groups of 1,500 people in four sections of Lavell Edwards Stadium. Separate entrances and exits for each section will ensure social distancing.

Tickets for the Troy game will go on sale to current season ticket holders on Sept. 15 and will be available on a limited basis. A percentage of tickets for all games will be held for BYU ROC students.

“We appreciate the university administration, government officials and a variety of medical experts who helped develop a plan to best ensure a safe and healthy game-day experience at LaVell Edwards Stadium,” said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “We are in the process of reaching out to season ticket holders with options for purchasing tickets.”
