NASHVILLE – The Titans will work with state and local government officials to determine the number of fans permitted to attend games at Nissan Stadium this fall.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, it is becoming increasingly likely that NFL teams will play home games with a reduced capacity during the 2020 season.
The exact number, or percentage, will be determined at a later date.
Nissan Stadium seats approximately 69,143 fans.
In recent weeks, the organization has examined ways to implement enhanced safety measures to ensure a safe return for fans.
By reducing seating capacity, seats will be spread out within the sections to increase space between fans. The organization will also have increased sanitization measures that will help prepare the stadium for fans to return this fall.
Season ticket members will also have the option to opt out of the 2020 season, returning for the 2021 season, and a refund option. Also, fans who purchased single-game tickets to Titans games in 2020 will have their orders canceled and fans will be refunded.
Here's a letter the Titans sent to season ticket members on Monday morning:
Season Ticket Members,
Over the past several days, there have been many reports regarding stadium capacities at NFL venues for the 2020 season. As these reports continue to emerge, we wanted to let our fans know that we are currently working closely with NFL, state and local officials on a solution for Titans games to be developed with the health and safety of our fans at the forefront of all decisions.
Based on CDC guidelines and initial feedback from other governing authorities, it is unlikely that Nissan Stadium will be open to full capacity this fall. The presence of and the exact number of fans has not yet been determined. Despite this, it is our hope that all Season Ticket Members will have the chance to attend a number of our games.
"The health and safety of our players, staff and fans are our highest priorities as we explore ways to accommodate Season Ticket Members at Nissan Stadium this season," said Burke Nihill, Titans President/CEO. "We are in the process of working with the NFL, Metro Health Department and healthcare professionals to determine how we can safely provide a first-class experience in the stadium this year."
Updated information regarding your season tickets and available options for the 2020 season will be emailed to you in the coming weeks. We can confirm that among the options will be the ability to opt out of the 2020 season and to apply existing payments to the 2021 season. There will also be an opportunity to secure a refund for any amount you've paid towards 2020 tickets. Please note, if you are currently enrolled in a payment plan for the 2020 season, all remaining installments have been suspended as of July 1, 2020.
Though the full extent to which we are able to host fans at Nissan Stadium is still yet to be determined, our staff is dedicated to helping our Season Ticket Members navigate these unique circumstances. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Season Ticket Services Team.
We appreciate your business and are looking forward to cheering on our Titans to another great season. Titan Up!
