The University of Idaho announced Wednesday that 2020 home games at the Kibbie Dome will be limited to 5,100 fans — all of whom must wear face masks — to “maintain healthy operations” during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a release from the school.

“Given our fans are traveling up from Boise and the Magic Valley, and driving over from Seattle and Portland, as well as coming down from Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, we did not make these decisions lightly,” UI athletic director Terry Gawlik said. “Adjusting the capacity for the Kibbie Dome is just one of the many steps we’ve taken in an effort to help provide a safe gameday environment for everyone involved.”

All tickets sold will be reserved seating. UI’s ticket office has altered its seating chart to reflect availability. Some season-ticket seats will be changed to allow for physical distancing.
