Alabama and Auburn announce new 2020 fan policy changes

Both the University of Alabama and Auburn University announced their changes to game attendance and tailgating policies for fans for the 2020 season.

These new policies follow similar guidelines set by the Southeastern Conference for all of their 14 schools.

School officials at Auburn have set the maximum capacity at Jordan-Hare stadium to just 20 percent for fans. General-seating spaces have been reserved for students only.

More seating guidelines for future games will be announced at a later time.

The school has also prohibited any on-campus tailgating during the 2020 season and is requiring all fans and game day workers to wear face coverings at all times during games.

Alabama also announced that Bryant-Denny stadium will only allow for 20 percent capacity.

Seating for students will be based on their classification, while remaining seating will be set up through TidePride point totals.

All on-campus tailgating activities have been banned for 2020, and all game attendees that enter the stadium are required to wear a protective face covering.

Concessions at Alabama games will be available. There will be limited prepackaged food options and only 50 percent of the registers will be open.
