NASHVILLE — According to reports from Yihyun Jeong and Brett Kelman of the Tennessean, Nashville officials are set to announce Thursday that a limited number fans will be allowed to attend Tennessee Titans’ games at Nissan Stadium.
Team President Burke Nihill and Mayor John Cooper announced in August that Tennessee would host not fans at the Titans’ opener September 20 against the Jacksonville Jaguars as a part of the city’s safety precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is the only home game Tennessee plays in the month of September. Expectations are that some degree of crowd will be able to attend when the Titans host the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 4.
The capacity allowed in remains unknown at this time.
Cooper and the city’s COVID-19 task force are set to outline guidelines for fans at the 70,000 seat Nissan Stadium at an in-person press conference Thursday morning, per Jeong.
This is a developing story.
