The following information details each NFL team’s efforts to manage the 2020 season with fans during the pandemic. This post will be actively updated in accordance to new announcements.
All franchises have offered season ticket holders the opportunity to receive a refund for their 2020 membership or relocate the funds towards the 2021 season and obtain exclusive, priority benefits.
The news is not all bad. The following teams have been approved by their state to hold in-person games at some capacity. Dedicated fans will be able to experience 2020 NFL matches at a reduced population. In addition to spacing, franchises have announced a plethora of different Covid-proof tactics to deliver a safe, yet thrilling experience for football fans once again.
Plan to Allow Fans
– Dallas Cowboys (Exact capacity TBA)
– Indianapolis Colts (25 percent capacity limit)
– Jacksonville Jaguars (25 percent capacity limit)
– Kansas City Chiefs (22 percent capacity limit)
– Pittsburgh Steelers (exact capacity TBA)
– Miami Dolphins (20 percent capacity limit)
But what does this mean for season ticket holders?
Well, the norm has certainly changed to adapt to new restrictions. Most teams continue to offer season ticket holders the option to suspend commitment until the 2021 season, however, individuals who choose to stay will receive certain perks.
Though the Steelers have yet to announce the precise percentage of fans allowed in Heinz Field, season ticket holders are highly prioritized in attending. The Pittsburgh based team informed Ticketmaster and other third-party ticketing websites that their transactions have been canceled and refunded. Therefore, owning a season ticket is currently the only way into Heinz for the 2020 season.
Like the Steelers, the Jaguars announced to season ticket holders that they alone will seat 25% of the stadium, currently the only percentage allowed for 2020 games. Should the capacity grow in accordance to state regulation, other fans will be allowed to purchase tickets.
The Bills announced that season ticket holders who remain committed to the franchise will be offered priority seating in the event limited ticketing is allowed. The Dolphins added that their season ticket holders will be prioritized for suite access during the 2020 season.
The Cowboys, Colts and Chiefs will follow in the footsteps of others to prioritize season ticket holders in attending their 2020 games. Despite announcing the cancellation of normal season tickets, the Cowboys promised those with a membership the opportunity to remain first in line to purchase single game tickets.
