Packers preparing to have limited fans at home games for 2020 season
Organization "optimistic" for fan attendance, but doesn't rule out having fan-less games
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WKBT) – Green Bay Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy told season ticket holders Friday the traditional gameday experience at Lambeau Field this season will be much different in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The team is “optimisic” there will be fans in attendance for home games, but the possibility remains of having no fans.
“At this time, the team is preparing to have fans in attendance with new policies and safety measures to allow for appropriate social distancing, which will require the stadium’s seating capacity to be significantly reduced,” the team said in a statement.
Face coverings will also be a requirement for fans who attend.
The Packers asked season ticket holders to start thinking if they plan to “opt in” or “opt out.” Fans who decide against going to games will have the chance to either get a full refund for the upcoming season or have them assigned to 2021.
