WEB EXCLUSIVE Get ready to throw up your wolf hands because Carter-Finley Stadium is officially allowing fans back into their stands after Governor Roy Cooper announced that stadium venues with more than 10,000 seats are allowed to open at 7 percent capacity beginning in early October. For Carter-Finley—a 57,583-seat stadium—that means they can allow up to 4,000 fans back for their next home game against Duke on October 17.
Athletics director Boo Corrigan released a statement following Cooper’s announcement explaining that NC State Athletics is working with Wake County and the state government on “the safest and most responsible conditions within our grounds.”

However, no tickets will be sold for the NC State vs. Duke game, instead, they will be divided among students, student-athletes and team staff. NC State students will get 50 percent of available tickets, while the remainder of the 600 tickets will be allotted for guests of student-athletes and team staff. 2020 ticket holders who donated to Preserve the Pack will also have an opportunity to request tickets.
Tailgating is still not allowed for the time being.
“We have some of the most passionate students, alumni and fans in the country and we want to allow them to be a part of the Carter-Finley Stadium experience,” Corrigan said in a press release.
NC State will continue to update their protocols in accordance with Gov. Cooper’s regulations; follow them on social media for the most current updates.
