The Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Department of Health Services announced the team will allow fans to attend the next home game against the Seattle Seahawks.
At least a small number of season ticket holders, that is.
From the team:
Last month, the Arizona Department of Health Services permitted the Arizona Cardinals to host a small group of staff, family members and friends at the September 27th game vs. Detroit. This group, which was capped at 750, provided the opportunity to test State Farm Stadium operations and new COVID-19 protocols.
For the Cardinals next home game on October 25th vs. Seattle, ADHS is allowing the team to increase the number of spectators to approximately 1,200 and also provide season ticket members the opportunity to attend.
Seats from this very limited allotment will be made available exclusively to season ticket members in account seniority order. To accommodate the greatest number of season-ticket members, seats will only be sold in quantities of two and assigned in adherence with all local and state COVID-19 guidelines. Season ticket members will be contacted by email today with more specific details.
These are among the additional measures being taken to provide fans with the safest possible gameday experience:
- Masks will be mandatory for all attendees and failure to comply will result in ejection.
- The 1,200 tickets will be allocated in pods of two on both the east and west sides of the stadium with 600 per side.
- To allow for the necessary social distancing, seats not available will be zip-tied to prevent their use.
- Tickets and parking are 100% digital and will be touch-lessly scanned upon entry. Concessions will also be a contact-less experience.
- Additional staff will be on hand to continuously clean all high-contact surfaces and restrooms throughout the event.
Any determination concerning attendance for future home games will be made at a later date and details will be communicated at that time.
