Duke football fans will still have the opportunity to get a "cutout" to place in the stands at home games.

DURHAM, N.C. — Duke University fall sports will go on, but without fans at home games. 

Duke Athletics officials made the announcement Monday morning in a release, citing the ongoing pandemic. Gamedays will still include game management personnel and broadcast media.

Fans who bought season and single-game tickets for the upcoming football season will get an email regarding their options.

Several different packages are available and include stadium location options, weekly prize drawings, and the ability to have the cutout autographed by head coach David Cutcliffe.
