There hasn’t been much information released about what the NFL plans on doing for attendance at games this season. What we do know is that no fans will be allowed in the first 6-8 rows of the sections connected to the field.
We also know that the NFL is going to leave it up to each city to decide if fans are allowed in, and if they are how many. They’ll also need to adhere to the rules set down by the department of health.
Today the Pittsburgh Steelers sent out this email to all season ticket holders.
Dear Season Ticket Holder,
We hope this finds you and your family safe and healthy amid these challenging times. We want to provide you with an update as we prepare for the 2020 season.
The NFL is contemplating changes to the preseason schedule, which may include cancelled games. Once those plans become final, we will communicate them to you, and you will receive a refund for any preseason games that are cancelled.
As for the regular season, we are working with public health officials and the NFL on plans for fans to safely attend the games. Our goal is to have fans at Heinz Field this season. We anticipate that we will be working with a reduced capacity scenario and that fans will be required to wear masks. We will provide more information on the regular season plans once they are finalized.
At this point, we would like to make you aware that you have the option to apply for a full refund for the 2020 season while still retaining the ability to renew your season ticket location in 2021, and if applicable, any associated seat licenses. To learn more about this option, click here.
In a typical season, you would be anticipating the arrival of your season ticket package later this month. We know you look forward to this as it marks the start of another exciting season. Ticket delivery will operate differently this season as we need to employ a digital ticketing solution to allow for flexibility. We will share additional details soon.
Your patience is greatly appreciated as we work diligently to provide you the best possible experience this season. Your unwavering support is a continued reminder why Steelers Nation is the best in all of sports.

The Baltimore Ravens released a statement today saying if they did allow fans it will be as little as 14,000 out of the 71,000 capacity.
