Green Bay Packers President Mark Murphy said more than 80% of the team’s season ticket holders have opted out of this season. The Packers will hold at least the first two games at Lambeau Field this season without fans. Every game at Lambeau Field since November 1959 has been sold out.
Teams across the NFL are trying to figure out what their stands will look like as the season nears. Some local guidelines, like those in New York and New Jersey, are prohibitive for any fans at Bills, Jets and Giants games. Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis said fans won’t be allowed during the team’s first season at the $1.9 billion Allegiant Stadium.
The Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Football Team will host at least their home openers without fans. Most teams are undecided or have announced intentions for reduced capacity.
