Alabama is moving forward with plans to host a full-capacity college football game at Bryant-Denny Stadium this coming season, athletics director Greg Byrne announced Monday.
Byrne tweet a short statement after the news the previous day that the school would return to direct teaching with no class capacity limitation in the fall. Byrne said they would continue to monitor medical guidelines “as we have had it all along.”
Alabama reduced its capacity to 20% last season as COVID-19 spread, infecting millions of Americans. Infections recently decreased significantly.
Last Friday, the Centers for Disease Control reported a seven-day average of 66,348 infections in the United States, which is down about 10,000 from the previous week.
According to data from the New York Times, Alabama has the lowest vaccination rate in the state, with 13% of people receiving a single injection.
The Bryant-Denny Stadium, which has a capacity of 100,077, is scheduled to host seven football games next season, starting with the home opener on September 11 against Mercer.
