In an effort to reform around the COVID-19 pandemic, UNC football has canceled season tickets for the (potential) 2020 season. North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham and Rams Club executive director John Montgomery outlined changes to the seating policy for games at Kenan Stadium in a post at GoHeels.com.
The quick upshot: season tickets are off the table for 2020, although there’s no specifics on how much capacity will be reduced at 51,000-seat stadium. UNC is in the midst of planning for multiple scenarios.
As of right now, ACC presidents are expected to vote on an 11-game schedule for 2020, which would include 10 conference games and 1 non-conference matchup. The date of that vote remains up in the air, however. There’s a proposed launch date of Sept. 12.
While speaking with media on a Zoom call last week, North Carolina coach Mack Brown stated his belief that a 2020 college football season would take place in the fall.
North Carolina has put forth three options for fans that already purchased season tickets for the 2020 season:
- Donate season ticket purchases to Carolina Athletics — a potentially tax-deductible gift
- Roll over 2020 season ticket package toward a 2021 season ticket order
- Get a refund: ticket purchase refunded in full
Additionally, UNC football will sell tickets via a single-game request system. That process will be finalized soon, according to the post. All ticket sales will also be moved to a mobile/digital platform for the 2020 season.
