As NFL teams expect to allow fewer fans in stadiums, many are trying to figure out what that means for season ticket holders. Some teams are offering full refunds or letting season ticket holders apply any payments towards credit for 2021 season tickets. The Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, New Orleans Saints, and Seattle Seahawks are just a few of the teams that will allow fans to pass on this season without penalty.

The Ravens told season ticket holders their seats won’t be available but the team will offer them the same seats in 2021. If fans are allowed this season, it is expected just 14,000 seats per game will be sold – the team’s more than 62,000 season ticket holders would receive purchasing priority.

Along with a refund policy, the Jacksonville Jaguars said they would welcome 25% capacity at TIAA Bank Field and fans will be required to wear masks. The crowd sizes could increase, depending on the state of the pandemic – Florida set a daily U.S. record with more than 15,000 positive COVID-19 tests on Saturday.

The Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Pittsburgh Steelers also announced reduced capacities for their home games.
