By Space Coast Daily // September 6, 2020
HOME OPENER SET FOR OCT. 3 AGAINST TULSA
In preparation for the 2020 UCF football season and in keeping with current state government guidance on sporting event attendance, UCF Athletics is implementing a variety of practices that may be adjusted as directed by evolving medical information to provide for the health and well-being of those attending sporting events this fall.
UCF Athletics is actively working with University leadership, the American Athletic Conference, the NCAA and public health officials on a return to competition this fall that prioritizes the health and well-being of all involved.
These and other precautions undertaken are consistent with the guidance of Orange County and the state of Florida.
Fans are asked to do their part by conscientiously practicing physical distancing, frequently washing hands, using hand sanitizer, wearing face coverings and entering the assigned gate on their mobile ticket to ensure the healthiest possible environment at sporting events throughout the 2020-21 season.
All fans should keep a safe distance between their party and other fans while inside and outside of the Bounce House.
Those fans who are not feeling well or have been in close contact with someone they suspect may be infected should stay home and contact their doctor.
Below are current measures that will be in place at the Bounce House for the 2020 season, grouped in alphabetical order by topic.
Additional details will be announced in the weeks leading up to the Oct. 3 home opener.

In order to accommodate as many fans as possible, there will be no season tickets for the 2020 season. Each season-ticket member will have funds already paid toward 2020 season tickets converted into an account credit that can be used to select four-game or two-game packages, or individual game tickets for Tulsa (Oct. 3) and Temple (Nov. 14) games Any remaining or unused credit can be donated to the Keep Charging On Fund or applied to 2021 season tickets.
The Bounce House will begin the season at 25% capacity. Due to this limitation, tickets will be available exclusively to season-ticket members. Seat selection priority will be based on 2020 season-ticket seat location and Championship Resources priority standing. Each account will be limited to the same quantity (or fewer) of single-game tickets or game packages as they have 2020 season tickets.
