Philadelphia Eagles not expected to have any fans at home games in 2020 after city's decision to ban large gatherings
It appears the Philadelphia Eagles won’t have any fans in the stands for the 2020 NFL season.
This comes after the city announced on Tuesday that all gathering and public events have been canceled for the next six months. That would be a tough pill to swallow for some of the most passionate fans in the NFL.
“The Eagles are still going to be allowed to play, although without crowds. The Phillies will continue to be allowed to play, although without crowds,” Managing Director Brian Abernathy said according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
“We have been in communication with the Eagles. We have told them our expectations are that they don’t have fans,” Abernathy added.
This isn’t great news for Philadelphia sports fans but it isn’t much of a surprise to see this type of drastic action taken. For now, no cities that host SEC football programs have taken actions this drastic but it’s a situation worth monitoring as we get closer to the scheduled start of the college football season.
