On October 11, Falcons to allow limited number of fans

The Atlanta Falcons declared Tuesday that they will permit a limited number of fans into Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Oct. 11 for their game against the Carolina Panthers.

The group chose a month ago to play September home games without fans, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, with a decrease of cases in Georgia, the group is pushing ahead with restricted limit with regards to the Oct. 11 game, just as for home matches including the Atlanta United MLS group.

“We are thrilled to invite fans of both the Falcons and Atlanta United back to Mercedes-Benz Stadium,” says Steve Cannon, CEO, AMB Sports and Entertainment.

“Having fans watch from alternative locations was a difficult, but important decision. It’s been challenging for both teams to play without fans, but their well-being as well as the safety of our associates and fans was paramount.”

The group is permitting 500 friends, family and partners for the Falcons’ home game this Sunday against the Chicago Bears as a dry run on protocols and operations.
