Eagles announce full capacity at Lincoln Financial Field for 2021

The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting fans back in the stands at full capacity to begin the 2021 NFL season.

The mayor of the city, Jim Kenney, announced he will remove stadium capacity restrictions beginning next month.

All stadium capacity measures are expected to be lifted by June 11, meaning Lincoln Financial Field will be free to have up to 67,594 fans in attendance for Eagles games beginning in the fall.

Eagles team president Don Smolenski was pleased with the news via his statement Tuesday.

“Today’s announcement by the City of Philadelphia to lift stadium capacity limits in time for the start of the 2021 NFL season is tremendous news for the Philadelphia Eagles, our fans, and the community,” Smolenski said. “We are excited to welcome our fans home and look forward to Lincoln Financial Field returning to form as an unrivaled home-field advantage for our team.

“We have always been committed to providing our fans a great gameday experience in a safe, clean, and friendly environment. As we look ahead to a full stadium, we encourage our community to get vaccinated.”
