The Arizona Department of Health has allowed Arizona Cardinals to increase fan attendance to about 1,200 in their 7th week game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Season ticket holders may attend the game for the first time at State Farm Stadium in 2020, when the Cardinals meet with NFC West leaders on October 25, the Cardinals announced on Friday.
“Seats from this very limited distribution will be provided exclusively to season ticket participants in the order of seniority,” the team said in a statement. “To accommodate the largest number of members, only two seats will be sold and assigned in accordance with all local and state requirements of COVID-19.”
Cardinals will contact season ticket holders by e-mail on Friday with further instructions on how they can participate.
The cardinals tested their coronavirus prevention protocols, allowing 750 people, all friends and family, to visit their September 27 loss at the Detroit Lions.
In the Seahawks game, fans will be divided into pairs of two, 600 fans on each side of the stadium. Masks will be mandatory for fans, and seats will be fastened together with fasteners to ensure social distance.
Tickets for games and parking will be distributed digitally and scanned without contact, while concessions will also be contactless.
