The plan for attendance at Auburn baseball games this year has officially been announced, with capacity reduced to about 20%. As with other sporting events this year, all tickets will be delivered digitally.

According to, seats will be marked similarly to how they’ve been marked at other athletic events this year.

"Seats will be arranged in pods of two and four with proper social distancing between each available seating group. Available and unavailable seats will be marked accordingly."

It was also announced that Plainsman Patio and Tiger Terrace will be closed, at least to begin the season. Perhaps most unfortunate of all, fans will not be allowed to watch games from the Stadium Parking Deck adjacent to the baseball field.

Season ticket holders will have priority, and single-game tickets could become available to the public–if there are tickets left to be had. Student tickets will be general admission and handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Student seats will be located in sections 109-111 and 52-73.

With a capacity of roughly 4096, that means that about 800 fans will be able to enter Plainsman Park on game day, and 800 is not a large number. Not to mention that handing out tickets to those who show up first can sometimes create minor chaos–just look at the lines for seating in Auburn Arena during big games (pre-pandemic, of course).

Fans shared thoughts on Twitter, and some happy with the attendance policy for Auburn baseball, and others less than excited:

War Eagle, and we’re sure ready for some Auburn baseball!
