Fans cheer during the 2018 Homecoming football game.

BOONE — App State Athletics is asking football fans to complete a Fan Safety Survey to provide feedback as it prepares for how COVID-19 may affect the upcoming season.

“Leading up to the 2020 season this fall, we will communicate with fans some ... improvements (to the game day experience), as well as what will be different at The Rock this year in light of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the department said on its website.

The survey asks respondents how comfortable they are leaving their homes, reasons they might not attend games or events at App State and if they prefer that social distancing is implemented at App State home football games.

The survey is not what people think...... the athletic dept is looking at projected losses


You mean losses in addition to their normal operating losses...the $20+ million dollars in direct subsidies that they receive through student fees every year to stay afloat, more than any other student fee (and by a large factor.)
