Penn State Athletics Officially Delays Sale of Student Football Tickets

It seems that the inevitable has finally arrived.

Penn State Athletics has officially indefinitely delayed the sale of student football tickets, the university announced in an email to students on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Athletics email, the ticket buying process has been delayed until “final decisions” have been made regarding the season. Penn State is working alongside Big Ten, NCAA, and public health officials to plan different scenarios depending on what is possible this fall.

“As always, the health and safety of our student athletes, coaches, staff, fans and community will be our top priority,” wrote Athletics. “Do your part by following the health and safety guidelines. We ask for your continued patience and understanding as we develop our fall plan. Once we have more clarity, we will communicate by email with more details about our fall season. “

Earlier this week, the team returned quite a few of their student-athletes to campus for summer volunteer training. Also, the NCAA passed a six-week preseason model to help programs get in shape for the season.

Although Penn State has not yet decided how (and if) football will play out this fall, President Eric Barron did not inspire much confidence when discussing the season in a town hall Monday. He noted that gathering thousands of fans in one place (read: Beaver Stadium) could “[have] the potential to create [a] super propagator event ”and undo the progress that Penn State could make to combat the spread of the coronavirus on campus.

Athletics advises students to check their website frequently for updated information on purchasing soccer tickets this summer.
