Michigan State Athletic Director Bill Beekman announced in a teleconference with reporters last week that MSU is planning on going ahead as scheduled with football as of right now. The Spartans' first game is on Sept. 5 against Northwestern. Beekman said that MSU is planning on opening Spartan Stadium to fans, but only at 20-30% capacity with priority given to students, season ticket holders and major donors.
If the football season does commence and Michigan State allows 20-30% of the stadium to be filled — which is approximately 15,000 to 22,500 fans — it appears that MSU students will be among the first to get their hands on tickets to see year one of the Mel Tucker era.
We at The State News would like students to take this survey and tell us how they would feel about returning to Spartan Stadium for football. If you feel strongly about this particular topic, feel free to email email@example.com.
