Pitt Football has announced they will be hosting about 5,500 fans for their two remaining games at Heinz Field this season.

Season ticket holders and Pitt students will be able to obtain the tickets.

Those remaining home games are against Notre Dame on October 24 and Virginia Tech on November 21.

Season ticket holders who chose to “Reinvest” will get first shot at lower bowl and club seats. Those who chose to “Rollover” will get the next crack.

“Allocation within those groups will be based on Panther Club priority points,” the University said in a statement.

Any tickets remaining will be made available to non-season ticket holder Panther Club members.

About 1,000 tickets will be made available to students. That includes the Pitt Band as well as the spirit squads.

Student Panther Club members will have the first shot at tickets.

A total of 7,500 people are allowed in Heinz Field, but that number includes players, coaches, staff member and stadium workers.

All fans who enter Heinz Field are required to wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols.

Tailgating will be prohibited, due to CCD guidelines.
