Ready for some football? Flames set to host five games

September 24, 2020

The Flames Football season was scheduled to start on Sept. 19 at Western Kentucky. (This issue was on the press before the season opener; check for game coverage.)

All five of Liberty’s home games are scheduled to be televised on ESPN3 with kickoff at 1 p.m. The viewing platforms for road games have yet to be announced, but additional linear television coverage is possible.

All 10 Liberty Football games can be heard live on radio through The Journey FM’s statewide network and flagship 88.3 FM in Lynchburg, and fans can also listen on the My Journey FM mobile app and online at

Pregame coverage for games will begin 90 minutes before kickoff.

Liberty Athletics transitioned to a single-game ticket model for the 2020 football season, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Under the current limitations set in Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s Phase 3 requirements, occupancy at outdoor venues is limited to 50 percent of the facility’s capacity or 1,000 patrons, whichever is less.

Under these restrictions, Liberty Athletics will limit its stadium capacity to 1,000 fans to begin the season at Williams Stadium.

For questions about tickets, call the Flames Ticket Office at (434) 592-5015.
