“For those wondering, yes, it is league-wide: Fans at NFL games this season will be required to wear face coverings,” McCarthy wrote.
The NFL already has rules in place, requiring players, coaches and staff to wear face masks except for when they interfere with specific athletic activities. Assuming fans will be allowed at games, they’ll be required to wear masks for the duration of their time at Arrowhead Stadium and the other 29 venues across the league.
Earlier this month, the Ravens announced that home games at M&T Bank Stadium will be limited by less than 14,000 fans this fall, hoping the state and local regulations approves.
While in Los Angeles, the new SoFi stadium will be capped at approximately 15,000 fans in a stadium that can fit 70,000-plus.
Recently, The Chiefs that is still under review to finalize health and safety protocols for the season, announced about their plan at the Arrowhead stadium capacity and ticket sales during the season, as they expect to have some fans to be allowed, yet the numbers is still in question.
Additionally, the NFL has said that the first 6-8 rows on the lower bowl sections, including field-level suites, will be blocked off this fall, covered with tarps, in order to avoid the spread of the virus, in which teams may alternatively use it to advertise or promote, similar what the English Premier League has done.
