Sanford Stadium will be rocking at full capacity when Georgia football opens the home portion of its schedule against Alabama-Birmingham on Sept. 11.

UGA athletic director Josh Brooks made the announcement at the school’s annual spring meetings that 92,476 will once again be welcomed into the Bulldogs home confines, per multiple social media posts on Thursday.

The Bulldogs recently learned their season-opening showdown with Clemson at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 4 in Charlotte, N.C. will be at full capacity.

Georgia played just three home games last season, all at limited capacity with athletic events exercising social distancing on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Vanderbilt canceled out on the Bulldogs’ Senior Day game on account of concerns related to Covid-19, and it was Georgia’s designed home game for the annual rivalry game with Florida in Jacksonville.

In addition to the Sept. 11 home opener with UAB, the Bulldogs home schedule this season also includes:

• South Carolina Sept. 18,

• Arkansas Oct. 2,

•Kentucky Oct. 16,

• Missouri Nov. 6,

• Charleston Southern Nov. 20
