TRUSSVILLE — Hewitt-Trussville announced on Tuesday that attendance for its home football games this season will be limited to roughly 50% Hewitt-Trussville Stadium capacity.
This announcement comes less than a week after the AHSAA released a memo, stating that spectators will be allowed to attend football games and other athletic events this fall, but attendance likely will be significantly reduced.
The school will sell 1,000 general admission tickets to each of its five 2020 home games. Visiting opponents include Saraland (Aug. 28), Thompson (Sept. 18), Hoover (Oct. 2), Gadsden City (Oct. 16) and Oak Mountain (Oct. 23).
According to Trussville City Schools Athletics Director Lance Walker, the decision to sell 1,000 tickets is based on the stadium’s max capacity and the number of people typically in attendance who do not purchase tickets on Friday nights. Those attendees include, band members, cheerleaders, students and teachers.
