Stadium rules for BYU football game attendance
People who had tickets to the first game against Troy will be attending this game. An email to them along with their tickets explained where they should park and which gate to enter the stadium.
The video says anyone who considers themselves a medically high-risk individual can specifically use gates 2 and 12.
No bags will be allowed, except diaper bags and necessary medical items and masks are required.
People must sit in their assigned seats, to spread out and ensure contact tracing. Hand sanitizer stations are throughout the stadium.
People will not be allowed to use cash or the water fountains in the stadium. But they will get a water bottle when they enter.
They asked people to take their own trash to trash cans to limit exposure to the cleaning crews.
The game kicks off at 8:15 pm and can be heard live on KSL Newsradio 102.7 FM/1160 AM or online, the app, or by asking Alexa to play KSL Newsradio. Pregame is two hours before.
BYU has played 3 home games without spectators. Their game in Houston last week had some BYU fans in attendance who either live in Texas or traveled to the game.
