This is what I was talking about when I made this post in early May…IF fans are allowed in this fall (IF games are played!), it will be a logistical nightmare.
Here is a current story from USA Today on the subject.
“The basic guidelines on social distancing — maintaining at least six feet of distance, particularly in a situation where attendees are convening from different locales — is forcing ticketing offices to create open space in stadiums that are built to accommodate shoulder-to-shoulder crowds. For example, a row of 25 seats may now only seat four groups of two as a way to provide separation, a task made even more complicated by the need to eliminate aisle seating to create safe walking space.”
“To help model various options for seating and ticketing, N.C. State has leaned on its partnership with SAS Institute, an analytics firm headquartered in Cary, North Carolina. N.C. State can offer up scenarios: attendance at 50% capacity, at 25% capacity, with social distancing in place. Using the layout of Carter-Finley Stadium, SAS can come up with a seating configuration to match each hypothetical, helping N.C. State develop plans for ticketing.”
"Under this plan, the highest-ranking ticket holder in this points system will retain his or her seats for 2020. Then, Priaulx and the Broncos’ ticket office will build space in all directions around those seats — for a group of four, that would mean eliminating the eight seats in front, the eight seats behind and the four seats on either side, along with ensuring that no other fans are seated diagonally within a safe distance.
“For every two seats that are put together, I’m killing 20 seats around that person, for that group,” said Priaulx. “The capacity won’t be determined until we’ve gone through the whole process and seated everybody.”
