Here's Which NFL Teams Will Allow Fans in Their Stadiums



Football is obviously looking quite different this year. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, stadiums full of cheering fans are basically no more. At best, teams and cities are allowing a small capacity to attend. What will NFL games look like this year? Well, it depends on the team and location. Some are allowing fans to attend the live games, and some aren't. Here's a breakdown, per ESPN.

1. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are letting 13,000 fans into the stadium for their September 20 home opener game against Buffalo. 13,000 is 20 percent capacity, which hopefully allows for more space between people. Fans attending the game are required to wear masks, a touchless food ordering system will be implemented, and smoking and tailgating has been banned.

2. New England Patriots

The Patriots aren't allowing fans to attend games through "at least September." According to ESPN, officials are hopeful to open the stadium to fans later in the season.

3. Buffalo Bills

The Bills already announced back in late August that they won't be allowing fans in the stadium for the first two home games.

4. New York Jets

The Jets aren't letting people into the MetLife Stadium. The order is in place "until further notice."

5. Cleveland Browns

Ohio officials decided to let the Browns have 6,000 fans at their September 17 game against the Bengals and again at their September 27 game against Washington. Fans are required to wear masks.

6. Cincinnati Bengals

Same as the Browns, Ohio is letting the Bengals have 6,000 fans in their stadium on October 4 in a game against the Jaguars and on October 25 against the Browns. Everyone attending need to wear masks.

7. Baltimore Ravens

It seems like the Ravens are proposing to allow 7,500 fans to attend the game. Initially, it was announced that they wouldn't be hosting any fans.

8. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are not permitting fans to attend the games at Heinz Field for two home games — at the very least. After the September 20 game against the Broncos and September 27 game against the Texans, it's possible that fans may be allowed to show up in-person.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars

16,791 fans are allowed to attend the Jaguars game at the TIAA Bank Field stadium. This is at 25 percent capacity.

10. Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are allowing 2,500 people to attend the Lucas Oil Stadium for the opening game on September 20 against the Vikings.

11. Houston Texans

As of now, the Texans are not welcoming fans to the NRG Stadium for the home opener on September 20 against Baltimore, but it's possible that this may change later on in the season.

12. Tennessee Titans

As of now, the Titans are not letting fans into their stadium for their September 20 home opener.

13. Los Angeles Chargers and Rams

Fans are not allowed at the LA-based stadiums "until further notice."

14. Las Vegas Raiders

Even though the Raiders have a new home in Vegas (a brand new stadium that can fit 65,000 fans), football fans will not be permitted inside Allegiant Stadium. The call was made by Raiders owner Mark Davis.

15. Denver Broncos

It was decided that 5,700 fans will be permitted to attend the Broncos' September 27 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

16. Kansas City Chiefs

As you already know, fans are allowed to attend the September 10 season opener against the Texans at Arrowhead Stadium. 16,000 fans is the limit, though (this is 22 percent capacity). 

17. Dallas Cowboys

People can attend the games at the AT&T Stadium, but so far it's unclear how many — it looks like it'll be fewer than 50 percent capacity.

18. Washington Football Team

Washington isn't allowing fans to attend home games this season, period.

19. Philadelphia Eagles

No fans are allowed in the Lincoln Financial Field stadium, but it's possible that this may change later on in the season.

20. New York Giants

Fans are not allowed in the MetLife Stadium "until further notice."

21. Chicago Bears

Currently, the Bears are not allowing fans in the Soldier Field stadium. 

22. Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are not welcoming fans to their first two home games. 

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The first two home games, one on September 20 and one on October 4, will be held without fans at the Raymond James Stadium.

24. New Orleans Saints

The Saints are currently not allowing fans in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. 

25. Atlanta Falcons

Although it was originally planned to allow 10,000 to 20,000 fans in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the team decided against it.

26. Carolina Panthers

As of now, the Panthers will not be letting fans attend their home games.

27. Arizona Cardinals
