Louisville Football plans to have 18,000 fans at home games Tuesday, Sep 1 2020 

By John McCarthy–

The University of Louisville plans to allow 18,000 fans to attend football games this fall at Cardinal Stadium. U of L said Aug. 24 these plans are subject to change as the season carries on.

With 18,000 attendees for home football games, fans will be able to socially distance. Cardinal Stadium staff will be conducting temperature checks at entrances and facial coverings will be required.

Social distancing measures will also be implemented in the parking lots for tailgating. Tailgating will be limited this season, as parking lots will open three hours prior to kickoff.

While excitement builds for the progression of the 2020 football season, U of L is taking financial hits. Reducing the seating capacity of Cardinal Stadium by 42,800 seats will cost U of L approximately $10 million in lost revenue. U of L’s football team is taking a hit as well. Salary reductions have been implemented for the coaching staff, starting with head coach Scott Satterfield.

However, all of these sacrifices will allow the Cardinals to look ahead and focus on the upcoming 2020 football season. U of L will open up their 10-game season against Western Kentucky University Sept. 12 at Cardinal Stadium.

University of Louisville football schedule revised for 2020 season Thursday, Aug 13 2020 

By Cole Emery —

The updated 2020 football schedule for the University of Louisville begins with a home game against Western Kentucky on Sept. 12. This will be the only non-conference game on the Cardinals’ schedule this year. The remaining 10 games will be against ACC opponents.

What the schedule will look like:

Sept. 12 – vs. Western Kentucky

Sept. 19 – vs. Miami

Sept. 26 – at Pittsburgh

Oct. 9 (Friday) – at Georgia Tech

Oct. 17 – at Notre Dame

Oct. 24 – vs. Florida State

Oct. 31 – vs. Virginia Tech

Nov. 7 – at Virginia

Nov. 20 (Friday) – vs. Syracuse

Nov. 27 (Friday) – at Boston College

Dec. 5 – vs. Wake Forest

The most difficult stretch in their schedule is a four-game stretch from visiting Notre Dame to visiting the reigning Coastal Division champion, Virginia. If the team successfully manages this difficult stretch and remains in contention for a spot in the ACC title game, then the final stretch appears to be manageable enough to lead them into the ACC championship game.
