The 2020 NFL season is inching closer and for months many have questioned if there would be fans in the stands or if there would even be a regular season. Well, we don’t have a concrete answer just yet for the second question, but today the Atlanta Falcons announced that they will have a limited capacity of 10,000-20,0000 fans at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for home games during the 2020 NFL season.
If there is a season, then, there will be at least some fans in the stands.
We are currently planning to have between 10,000 and 20,000 fans at our games this season. Masks will be required for all fans inside @MBStadium.— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) July 22, 2020
Mercedes-Benz Stadium’s reduced capacity for home game’s this year is abiding by local and state requirements, as well as the NFL and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) social distancing guidelines. All fans in attendance at games will be required to wear masks at all times.
The Falcons have also informed season ticket holders of two financial options meant to assist them during economic difficulties. Those who are current on their 2020 PSL payments may extend their payment terms for one year and not be charged a principle and interest payment in 2021. Those with a current balance for their 2020 PSL payments can delay those payments until 2021 and extend their payment terms for one year.
The Falcons will also offer season ticket credits. The team will apply 2020 season ticket funds toward tickets for limited capacity games with any unused credits remaining in a fan’s account as a credit towards PSL balances or 2021 season ticket payments. Fans will also have the option to receive a refund of any unused funds. If a season ticket holder decides to keep season ticket credit on their account, the pricing for 2021 season tickets will remain flat, regardless of any attendance to 2020 home games. For those season ticket holders who have paid some or all ticket charges for 2020 but choose not to attend any games, the unused funds on their accounts will be credited towards any PSL balances or 2021 ticket payments with the option to receive a refund.
