Baltimore Ravens plan to limit M&T Bank Stadium attendance to roughly 20 percent of capacity in 2020
The Kansas City Chiefs have already announced Arrowhead Stadium would be under limited capacity this season, but the Super Bowl champions did not list a figure for the number of fans that would be allowed to attend home games this season.
Following that news, the Baltimore Ravens went a step further and have announced M&T Bank Stadium capacity will be fewer than 14,000 fans for the coming season:
Based on the social distancing guidelines and fan safety protocols developed by health experts, governmental officials and the NFL, it is expected that the stadium capacity – if fans are allowed – would be fewer than 14,000 seats per game.
“To offer a proper level of safety for fans who want to attend games, a reduction in capacity is necessary,” stated Ravens president Dick Cass. “We are disappointed that this will be a disruption for many ticket buyers, but we have an obligation to our fans and our community to keep M&T Bank Stadium as safe as possible.”
Considering M&T Bank Stadium holds over 71,000 fans, that figure represents around 20 percent capacity for the 2020 NFL season. The Ravens have already sold over 60,000 season tickets following last season’s 14-2 season.
