Will there be fans at NFL games this season?

Some NFL games will allow for fans this season. Certain teams have announced updated reduced capacity to allow for socially-distanced seating in accordance with local regulations. See your team's website for specifics on which games will have fans back in stands.

All other teams continue to monitor local regulations with respect to in-stadium fan attendance. We will keep this list up to date so check back often about the status of your team.

Will children under two now be required to have an individual ticket to enter the facility?

No changes will be made to the ticketing treatment for children under two years of age. Per CDC guidelines, fans below the age of two are not required to wear a face covering.

Who may fans attend games with?

Fans should attend games only with family members they have been sheltering with and/or trusted acquaintances.

How will stadiums be seating fans to support physical distancing?

Tickets will be distributed in a way to support physical distancing between each group of ticketholders attending together. Please make sure to sit in your assigned seat as stadiums will be blocking off unassigned seats as part of this effort.

Fans should visit individual NFL team websites to learn about other measures stadiums may be taking such as directional signage and ingress and egress procedures.

How does socially distanced seating work?

Tickets will be available to purchase in socially distanced seating pods (i.e., ticket groupings of 2, 4, 6, 8, etc.). Each seating pod will have space surrounding to allow for social distancing at the event consistent with applicable health and safety guidelines. Events that utilize socially distanced seating will be operating at reduced capacity. When you purchase tickets, you must purchase all tickets available for sale in a preset grouping.

How else does COVID-19 affect my tickets?

We are working closely with Ticketmaster and teams to ensure that we keep fans updated. Due to the continually evolving situation, we may decide to reschedule, postpone or cancel events, in which case fans will be promptly notified.

Full refunds will be available on Ticketmaster if a game is canceled and it cannot be replayed, or if it is played under conditions that prohibit fans from attending. If a game is postponed or rescheduled, your tickets may be valid for the new date, so hang onto them and we will keep you posted. In addition to Ticketmaster's standard Purchase Policy, our Supplemental Terms apply. Please also note that additional ticket terms and conditions of the applicable NFL team apply. Please refer to your team's website and/or the ticket itself to review those ticket terms and conditions.

Can I still buy tickets to the 2020-21 NFL season?

 Fans whose tickets were impacted by cancelations will be notified if tickets become available again. You can also visit Ticketmaster to see if tickets are available.

If I can't make the game, can I sell my tickets on Ticketmaster?

If for some reason you can't make the game, you can sell your tickets on Ticketmaster directly from your account. If your seats are part of a socially distanced seating pod, you must sell your seats together as a group in order to help enforce social distancing guidelines.

When you visit your account, if you see a "Sell" button on your order, you'll be able to see your tickets verified through Ticketmaster. Just click the button to set your price and list your tickets. When your tickets sell, we'll make sure you receive the correct funds via direct deposit after the event. You can also edit or remove your listing anytime.

Should any fans not attend games?

While people of all ages and health conditions have been adversely affected by COVID-19, certain people have been identified by public health authorities as having greater risk based on age and/or underlying medical conditions. Specifically, the CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. Guests should also evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend. 

What is the League doing around player safety?

New protocols are also being put in place around player safety. Take a look inside the Rams training facility to see some of these plans in action.
