Titans will start allowing spectators in October
The Tennessee Titans will begin allowing a limited number of spectators at Nissan Stadium next month.
For the Pittsburgh Steelers’ visit to Nashville on Oct. 4, the stadium will open at 10 percent capacity (roughly 7,000 fans) for season-ticket holders seated in the lower bowl and club levels.
That number will rise to 12.5 percent (8,600 fans) for the Oct. 11 game against the Buffalo Bills, and to 15 percent (10,400) for the Oct. 11 contest against the Houston Texans.
For the Titans’ remaining home games — two in November and two in December — the capacity could reach 21 percent (14,500), the maximum the facility can accommodate under current CDC guidelines, according to a statement released by the team on Thursday.
“We are thrilled to welcome fans back to Nissan Stadium and can’t thank (Nashville) Mayor (John) Cooper and the Metro Nashville Public Health Department enough for their collaboration in making this possible,” Titans president and CEO Burke Nihill said.
“The health and safety of our fans, players and staff remains our top priority and we felt like a gradual capacity plan was the right call, knowing that we may need to be flexible as time goes on. We feel confident that our Safe Stadium Plan will give everyone a safe and comfortable experience as they return to our gates.”
The Titans (1-0) opened the season Monday night with a 16-14 win at Denver. They face the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0) in the home opener on Sunday in a game that will be closed to the general public.
