Iowa State allows 25,000 fans at home amid epidemic

Iowa State will allow fans to appear as their season opener at Jack Trice Stadium next month amid a coronovirus epidemic.

The Cyclones announced on Monday that around 25,000 spectators were expected to participate in their September 12 match against Louisiana.

In a letter to fans, Athletic Director Jamie Pollard said the crowd would include only season ticket holders. Everyone in attendance must cover a face at all times, and anyone who refuses to wear them will be entered and / or removed from the stadium. No tail would be allowed, and Pollard asked everyone to “pay respect to the physical will of other fans”.
