Iowa paused ticket sales for the 2020 football season on Monday.

Amid the uncertainty for the upcoming campaign due to the coronavirus pandemic, NY UNIVERSITY the school said only individuals who renew season tickets and complete per-seat contributions by June 30 will be included in the Kinnick Stadium seating plans.

"Hawkeye fans are excited for the upcoming season and we truly appreciate their continued enthusiasm and support," Iowa athletics director Gary Barta said in the statement.

"With the current information available, we needed to pause additional sales and start focusing on reduced capacity seating models based on our season ticket holders. We anticipate finalizing this by late July and will share with our fans.

"The option of having the ability to accommodate as many Hawkeye fans who are comfortable attending a game in Kinnick Stadium is still one of the scenarios."

The Hawkeyes are scheduled to open the season on Sept. 5 when Northern Iowa visits Iowa City. Normal capacity for Kinnick Stadium is 69,250.

The school also announced that all game tickets and parking passes will be mobile-only and will be scanned from smartphones or smartwatches. There will be no paper tickets or parking hangtags. Cash will not be accepted at the stadium.

"Mobile ticketing will provide contactless entry to our venues, while also giving greater flexibility and ticket security," Barta said. "As conditions evolve throughout the coming year, mobile tickets provide more options to deliver the best fan experience in a rapidly changing environment for all our venues."
