OSU will allow 25% capacity for football games, per report

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State officials are working on seating plans for football games at Boone Pickens Stadium that will allow for 25% capacity because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a report.

That would allow for slightly less than 14,000 fans, of which 2,500 will be students, according to Pokes Report, which first broke the news, citing a source inside the athletic department.

The athletic department and ticket office will be releasing the details on configuration of the seating next week, per the report.
