Regarding football season tickets for the 2020 season, Del Conte gave the following statement in the Forty Acres Insider: 

"We realize this is a time of uncertainty for many, and with that in mind, we have extended the football season ticket renewal deadline, moving it back from the original date of this Friday, March 20 to Friday, May 1. We did this because you are the lifeblood of our program, and your continued support as a season ticket holder is a critical way for us to maintain and build on all of our Longhorn Athletics programs, which we all strive to make the best in the country. You should have received communication from the ticket office and the Longhorn Foundation yesterday evening. Do not hesitate to reach out to our teams in those offices if you have any questions or concerns, but let’s all stick together and plan on celebrating everything Texas once again next football season. What you do to provide a raucous home-field advantage at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium is so valuable, and our coaches and players feel the effect the environment you’ve created has on the team, our opponents and winning games! If you didn’t have season tickets last year, new season ticket deposits are being accepted as well."
