WACO, TX — Baylor University has announced its adjusted ticketing structure for the 2020 home football season.

Capacity at McLane Stadium will be limited to 25%. If the capacity is expanded as the season progresses, fans will have more opportunities for single game tickets.

The university is also deferring season tickets to the 2021 campaign due to the reduction in ticket inventory.

Priority single-game tickets will be sold to season ticket holders first. Bear Foundation priority ranking will determine the order for ticket selection. A maximum ticket amount of six tickets per account, per game, will be implemented in the general stadium bowl.

For the 2020 season, all ticket and parking delivery will transition into mobile-only passes.

  • All 2020 game tickets will be delivered as mobile-only tickets. Attendees may upload tickets into their Apple or Android wallet, and will include the option of transferring tickets directly from the app.
  • All season parking passes for the general seating bowl (excluding Suite and Loge) have been eliminated. Parking will be distributed via mobile-only passes on a single-game basis. Bear Foundation priority will be used to allocate parking location and passes will be limited to one pass per five tickets, per game.

Baylor University Vice President and Director of Athletics, Mack B. Rhoades, IV introduced the Re-United Relief Initiative, which encourages philanthropic support to help minimize the financial challenges Baylor Athletics will continue to face due to COVID-19.

"Now, more than ever, we ask for your philanthropic support through the Baylor Bear Foundation," Rhoades said. "The athletic department is expecting an approximate 20% revenue decline this year, which impacts our ability to serve more than 500 current Baylor student-athletes. We invite the Baylor Family – as they are able – to join us as we continue to carry out our vision of Preparing Champions for Life. In addition, we remain intensely focused on the safety and well-being of the Baylor community, including our student-athletes, coaches, staff, student body and loyal fans. In coordination with our event management team, health and wellness experts, University leadership, and the Big 12 Conference, NCAA, and government officials, we will continue to follow protocol and guidelines to safely play sports this fall."

Details about how McLane Stadium capacity and schedule adjustments will affect other university activities, such as the Baylor Line and student ticketing, will be outlined in the coming weeks.

Baylor Family Weekend will be held virtually this year. Homecoming activities will be modified and announced in the weeks ahead.
