These games will be sold as single game tickets and not as a season ticket.  There will not be season tickets or season parking this year, the University announced.

Capacity at Kinnick Stadium will be limited to 10,000 - 15,000 seats per game.  Iowa athletics plan to announce the price single game tickets soon-- they will be priced by individual game and section.

Fans can purchase their tickets/seats as best available and will purchase in tickets of 2 or 4 and be socially distanced throughout the stadium.

Parking WILL be sold on a single-game basis with on spot per account and parking lots will be at 50% capacity.  Parking lots WILL open 4 hours before kickoff.

As far as guidelines for attending Iowa Hawkeye football games, Director of Athletics, Gary Barta gave fans more information:

      • Main stand and premium seating in Kinnick Stadium will follow six-feet social distancing guidelines.
      • Fans will be required to wear face coverings and additional mitigation strategies have been implemented.
      • All tickets and parking passes will be mobile.
      • University of Iowa students will have access to single-game tickets in the student section. The capacity will be limited and distribution plans are still being finalized.

This is a start in the right direction to actually having college football this Fall in Iowa City.  Hopefully, the plans and procedures come to fruition and Iowa will host all 5 games this season.
