Fans return to Kidd Brewer for football vs. Arkansas State
By Sophia Lyons
The football game versus Arkansas State will have fans in Kidd Brewer Stadium tonight. The Appalachian reports 2,100 fans will be allowed in the stadium in response to Governor Roy Cooper’s executive order allowing stadiums to open at significantly reduced capacities. Tickets have been distributed between 650 Yosef Club members, 450 App State and visiting team’s family members, 200 “other ticket allotments” and 800 students, chosen by lottery.
Students entered the lottery by verifying their student accounts through the student ticket portal, and randomly-selected winners were emailed tickets with their assigned seats Tuesday. Yosef Club season ticket holders were chosen based on their Yosef Club rank, which is earned based on financial gift totals to App State Athletics.
Dining Services will operate two concession stands, Taft and Harding will have alcohol available for purchase in the south end zone, and the university bookstore will sell App State clothing and merchandise on the west concourse ramp. All transactions in the stadium will be via plastic: no cash will be accepted.
Game attendees will be given an arrival time after the gates open at 6 p.m. to avoid long lines to enter the stadium, and miniature bottles of hand sanitizer will be given out at the East and West gates. All guests are required to wear face coverings, adhere to six-foot social distancing requirements, and frequently wash or sanitize their hands. Violating these policies may result in removal from Kidd Brewer Stadium.
