This may not be much of a surprise but the University of Minnesota has officially announced that there will be no restrictions on capacity for Gopher sports.

“We are excited to safely welcome fans back into our venues,” said Director of Athletics Mark Coyle. “We will follow all University, local and state guidelines, and we are looking forward to our fans once again providing a tremendous advantage for our Gopher student-athletes when they compete on campus. We are so thankful for our fans, donors and sponsors who helped provide necessary resources for our student-athletes last season, but we missed seeing and hearing them at games. We cannot wait to welcome everyone back to campus in a few months, while still providing our fans with a safe and enjoyable experience.”

After a full season of empty stadiums, this is fantastic news. Next step is for Gopher fans to buy up every ticket and fill the stadium. With Ohio State, Nebraska and Wisconsin coming to TCF Bank stadium, there is no excuse for there not being multiple sell-outs in 2021.

Also, included in this announcement is that Minnesota will be moving to all mobile tickets.

Minnesota will also be transitioning to mobile tickets for all ticketed events on campus. Additional information and tutorials will be shared directly with ticket holders. This transition to mobile tickets allows for improved ticket delivery and management features.

Single game football tickets go on sale July 15th.

Put it on your calendars and get out to support what is going to be a very exciting football team this fall!
