In July, Michigan Athletics announced there would be no season tickets or single game sales to the general public if a fall season were to take place because of the coronavirus pandemic.
At the time, season tickets holders who had already paid for their tickets were told they could apply their balance to 2021 season tickets, request a refund or donate them to the athletic department.
