Patriots Announce Tentative Safety Protocols For Fan Attendance At Gillette StadiumSteve Balestrieri - PatsFans.com

On Tuesday, the New England Patriots released more information regarding their tentative plans over fan attendance at Gillette Stadium this upcoming season.

In a statement shared over social media and in a letter to season ticket holders, Gillette Stadium will host just 20 percent of its total capacity in 2020 pending Massachusetts state and local approval.

Full Gillette Stadium capacity sits at 65,878, meaning no more than 13,175 fans will be permitted this season.

For fans to attend Gillette Stadium, the state of Massachusetts will have to be in “phase 4” of it’s reopening plan.

On game day, all ticketed parties will be expected to maintain a physical distancing of at least six feet from other parties, tickets will be arranged in blocks of 10 seats or less, and the first eight rows of stadium seats will not be used. Additionally, face coverings will be required at all times inside the stadium to keep all attendees safe.

In addition to the social distancing measures, the Patriots will offer free parking to all fans in Gillette Stadium parking lots.

According to the Patriots, “Putnam Club and Season Ticket Members will have the first opportunity to purchase individual game tickets if fans are allowed, and any remaining ticket inventory will go on-sale to the general public once the member process is complete”

The Patriots will open up the 2020 season at home against the Miami Dolphins on September 13th.

“Although game days will look different this year as a result of the many safety precautions being implemented, the Patriots organization is committed to delivering a positive experience for all who attend,” the team said.
