Austin ISD retracts stadium capacity limits, will allow 100%

Officials said Friday that they were planning to limit capacity to only 25%.

AUSTIN, Texas — According to an Austin ISD official, less than three days after announcing that the district would be enforcing a 25% capacity limit at athletic venues, AISD will now be allowing full capacity.

The district first announced limits on Friday. Then, on Monday, AISD confirmed it would be retracting those limits. The district did not immediately provide a reason for the sudden change.

A district spokesperson told KVUE on Friday that all fans were going to need an online ticket and personal protective equipment, such as a face mask, to gain entry. And tickets can be purchased through gofan.co

Fans are also encouraged to social distance when feasible, and the district said its protocols will apply to both home and away games.

The district is also reminding event-goers of its clear bag policy:

  • Approved bags must be clear and not exceed 12 in. (by 6 in. by 12 in.) or be a clear one-gallon resealable plastic freezer storage bag.
  • One per person. Bags must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and have a maximum of one logo imprint not exceeding 4.5 in. tall by 3.4 in. wide.

Austin and Travis County have also implemented a mask mandate for local government property, colleges and schools. AISD has enforced a mask mandate of its own for students, staff and visitors.
