Sporting events are a hot ticket these days, with seats for each World Series game selling out in approximately 90 minutes yesterday. Tickets were sold in four-seat “pods” as a social distancing measure to safely fit 11,550 fans — the World Series will fill up about 29% of Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
While MLB is entering its postseason bubble and preparing to welcome fans for the first time this season, NFL teams are still split on fan policies. Yesterday, the Green Bay Packers announced an indefinite hold on hosting fans at Lambeau Field because of increasing COVID-19 cases across Wisconsin.
Packers’ faithful will have to enjoy games at home, but the Dallas Cowboys continue to break records for NFL game attendance amid the pandemic. More than 25,000 fans were present in AT&T Stadium for the Cowboys’ Week 4 matchup.
