As part of following guidelines laid out by the state, Texas Longhorns officials plan to limit seating at home games this season by 50 percent, the Houston Chronicle reported after the outlet obtained a copy of the letter athletic director Chris Del Conte sent to ticket holders.

“As we continue to work closely with the Governor’s office and follow state guidelines for social distancing, we anticipate seating at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium to be at a reduced capacity,” Del Conte wrote, per Inside Texas. “As of today, capacity is limited to 50 percent.”

In other words, all season ticket holders will have a spot in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium this season, or they’ll simply be allowed to opt out without penalty for 2021.

However, season ticket holders are being asked to bear with a temporary reseating process.

The stadium holds 100,119 fans. That means about 50,000 will be in attendance.
