Penn State Season Ticket Holders told No Fans in the Stands for Now

Penn State Athletics sent an email to Penn State Football season ticket holders and it basically states, at this point, fans will not be allowed in the stands.

The email states, “As of today, the current large group gatherings guidance from the Governor’s office limits capacity to 250 people for outside events and 25 people for inside events. Therefore, under the current conditions and current state orders, our fall sports events would be conducted without fans in the general seating areas of our facilities. We continue to work with the Governor’s office to discuss, and possibly be prepared for the opportunity to have spectators at our fall Penn State sporting events.”

The email also outlines options for season ticket holders:

“Your assistance for Penn State Athletics and our over 800 dedicated student-athletes, starts with selecting an option to address your 2020 football season ticket commitment in light of the current capacity restrictions in Beaver Stadium. We would like nothing more than to have a full 2020 season with 107,000 of the Penn State faithful cheering on the Nittany Lions, but COVID-19 clearly had other plans. There are three options for your 2020 football ticket payment:

1.  Convert Your 2020 Football Season Ticket Purchase into a Tax-Deductible Donation

Season ticket holders can opt to turn their entire 2020 football season ticket (ticket and seat contribution) and parking cost into a tax-deductible donation to the Levi Lamb Fund.
Season ticket holders who are paid in full will be guaranteed a price freeze for their 2021 football season ticket(s). A seat contribution will still be required in 2021, but will also be frozen at the 2020 contribution levels.
Additional benefits for choosing this option include:

In the event the Governor’s orders regarding large group gatherings changes, you will get priority access to seats based on NLC Priority Points.
100 NLC Priority Points (equivalent to a $5,000 donation).
Extended payment plan for 2021 football season tickets.
Exclusive Enter to Win opportunities throughout the year.

 

2.  Rollover to 2021 Football Season Tickets

Season ticket holders can opt to roll over their 2020 football season ticket (ticket price only) and parking payment to their 2021 football season tickets and parking.
The 2020 football seat contributions will be converted to a tax-deductible donation to the Levi Lamb Fund.
Season ticket holders who are paid in full will be guaranteed a price freeze for their 2021 football season ticket(s). A seat contribution will still be required in 2021, but will also be frozen at the 2020 contribution levels.
Additional benefits to choosing this option include:

In the event the Governor’s orders regarding large group gatherings changes, you will get priority access to seats based on NLC Priority Points.
50 NLC Priority Points (equivalent to a $2,500 donation).
Extended payment plan for 2021 football season tickets.

3.  Request a Full Refund

Season ticket holders can opt to request a full refund of their 2020 football season ticket (ticket price only) and parking payment.
The 2020 football seat contributions will be converted to a tax-deductible donation to the Nittany Lion Club’s Levi Lamb Fund.
Season ticket holders who request a refund will retain their season ticket holder status in the renewal process for 2021, but will not be guaranteed their 2020 seat locations and parking for the 2021 football season.
