Coronavirus: Jaguars plan for reduced-capacity crowds at 2020 NFL games

July 10 2020 9:38 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars have revealed plans that would allow a limited number of fans to attend 2020 home games, filling TIAA Bank Field to around a quarter of its 67,000 capacity.

The organisation also unveiled new safety protocols for staff and fans, including mandatory use of face coverings amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Jaguars said the plan was designed "in compliance with state and local authorities and following CDC social distancing guidelines", a reference to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Additional seating could become available if public health authorities approve such a move later in the season, the Jaguars said.

The club also declared a commitment to provide additional hand sanitising stations, convert all concessions and merchandise sales to a cashless format and provide in-stadium guidelines for social distancing.

The Jaguars first sent the plan to season ticket holders in an email before releasing details to the public. The season is due to begin on September 10.

Fans who own season tickets are eligible for full refunds or can apply the payments toward tickets this season or next season. Season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets, and any unsold seats will be available to single-game buyers.

The Jaguars said they are working with Ticketmaster to develop a seating plan to allow friends and family to attend games together while keeping a minimum of six feet between "unaffiliated parties".

Jacksonville became the third NFL franchise to unveil a plan for limited seating this season, after the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs.
