Eagles fans are allowed back in the Linc starting this Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens after city officials announced changes to coronavirus-related crowd restrictions.
“After many thoughtful and active discussions, we are thrilled to announce that the fan experience will return to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday,” Don Smolenski, Eagles president, said in a statement.
The stadium occupancy will be limited to 7,500 people, which includes players, coaches, team and stadium personnel, media and fans.
Due to the limited capacity at Lincoln Financial Field, single-game tickets versus the Ravens (Oct. 18) and New York Giants (Oct. 22) will go on sale to Season Ticket Members who have opted into the 2020 season beginning tomorrow Wednesday, Oct. 14.
Tickets will be sold in groups with the ability to purchase as many as six tickets in the same seating pod.
Any remaining tickets for the Ravens and Giants games will go on sale to the general public and communicated at a later date. Single-game tickets for the remaining 2020 home games will go on sale in the coming weeks.
The Eagles say face coverings are required for all guests (age two and up) at all times. Fans will be required to maintain six feet of social distance from other fans and stadium staff at all times. Personalized seating pods have been established for proper social distancing and limited fan-to-fan contact.
Social gatherings or tailgating in the sports complex are not permitted for the 2020 season.
Gates will open 90 minutes prior to kickoff and guests will be assigned a specific gate for entry that corresponds to the location of their game ticket.
All transactions will be cashless at the concessions stands.
