This story was updated Aug. 19 with more information about ticket numbers.

Students will be required to request tickets online before each of the six home football games the Frogs will play this season, according to an email sent Tuesday from TCU Athletics.

This is a change from previous years, when students could attend games using their student IDs. Seating was available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Due to social distancing guidelines, the Amon G. Carter Stadium will be capped at 12,000 fans for the entirety of the season. TCU Athletics has reserved 3,000 tickets for students on the east side and north end zone of Amon G. Carter Stadium.

“Student attendance is a priority and a big part of our game day,” said Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati. “We reviewed TCU student attendance for the last few years to help determine a number of tickets to meet demand while still following health and safety guidelines and social distancing requirements.”

Students will have the option to create groups of up to four people to sit with. To do this, they can start submitting requests at 8 a.m. on the Monday prior to TCU home games. Requests must be turned in by Wednesday at 5 p.m.

Students can expect to receive their tickets electronically by the Friday before home games. The tickets are non-transferable, and anyone without a reserved seat will not be allowed to enter the stadium on game day.

There is no limit to the amount of home games a student can attend.

If the demand for tickets is greater than the amount available, tickets will be issued in a lottery. Priority for tickets will fall in the following order: seniors, juniors, graduate students, sophomores and first-year students.

As previously announced, all fans will be prohibited from tailgating and required to wear a mask when at the stadium. TCU staff will strictly enforce the guidelines to reduce the spread of the virus.
