There'll be no fans in attendance at the Denver Broncos first home game coming up on September 14th, but just in time for Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, fans will be back inside Empower Field at Mile High.
The Broncos are scheduled to play their second home game during the third week of the NFL season on September 27th. About 5,700 fans will be allowed at the games starting then. There is seating at the stadium for about 76,000 fans.
“There’s certainly opportunity to see additional fans in future weeks (beyond Sept. 27),” Colorado Governor Jared Polis said.
The Broncos released details for the ticketing and seating procedures for the Tampa Bay game:
• For single-game tickets and parking passes, all Broncos season ticket holders will be automatically entered into a weighted lottery based on priority. The on-sale date will be next week.
• Seats will be sold in “pods” of 1-6 tickets and sections will be separated into smaller groups with designated entry, concession and restroom areas.
• Suite seating will have a limited capacity and available first to current premium members.
• Fans will be required to attend the game with known family members or friends.
• For fans who are selected in the lottery but do not wish to buy single-game tickets, no action is required.
• A maximum of 175 people will be seated in selected sections.
• All concession stands will be cashless.
• All fans will be required to wear face coverings when on stadium grounds.
• Tailgating will not be permitted.
