Boise State University announces full capacity at football games
AD hopes to sell out all home games
BOISE, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — A football game without fans is like a night without stars. Boise State University made a major announcement Tuesday regarding athletics this fall.
BSU will have full capacity in Albertsons Stadium, which is great news for Bronco fans, considering Oklahoma State comes to town September 18.
Athletic director Jeramiah Dickey hopes the university can sell out all six of their home games. Other opponents include UTEP, Nevada, Air Force, Wyoming and New Mexico.
Those that purchase tickets over the next 24 hours will be invited to an exclusive ticket distribution event in advance of the season.
While the next four seasons are planned out, there’s no word yet if the canceled Florida State game is going to be made up in the future.
Also, Dickey announced full capacity will be allowed at other sports as well, including women’s soccer.
“Up until a couple of weeks ago we were still furloughing staff. So this was a great opportunity for us for us to take the next step as a program,” Dickey explained. “I want to thank campus and their leadership through COVID. It’s been a challenging situation and no template to follow.”
“But now we have some motivation too on top of our traditions and who’ve we’ve always been to lead ourselves out of this pandemic,” head football coach Andy Avalos added. “Our student-athletes come back and they’re going to start training next week. So they got a little extra juice going, knowing that their family and friends, and that stadium is going to be full.”
This summer the Broncos are hosting a movie night on The Blue, coinciding with the annual “Select your Seat” event.
