The university revealed as much in an email to season ticketholders, indicating the plan is for 100% capacity at Doak Campbell Stadium. This isn’t just good news for fans. It’s also good for FSU, which could use the revenue after limited capacity last year.
“The reduced capacity for a primary revenue generator (home football games) took a toll on an FSU athletic department that was already struggling financially before the pandemic,” 247Sports wrote. “Staff reductions and furloughs were part of cost-cutting measures for the athletic department. Athletic director David Coburn has said previously that another year without the revenue generated by full-capacity sporting events would further debilitate FSU’s athletics budget.”
