The Arizona Cardinals and the Arizona Department of Health Services have decided that the team will not allow fans at their final two games.
From the team:
The Arizona Cardinals today announced that based on the latest COVID-19 information and guidance from the Arizona Department of Health Services, members of the general public will not be permitted to attend either of the team’s remaining regular season home games (Dec. 20 vs. Philadelphia and Dec. 26 vs. San Francisco).
As has been the case with previous games, the only spectators permitted to attend will be a limited number of immediate family members of Cardinals players and staff.
It is not a shocking decision for the Cardinals to make as positive Covid-19 cases are on the rise, so the team and the state will look to make sure that does not happen at Cardinals games.
As the statement from the team says, they are allowing immediate family members into the stadium, but that is it.
It has been a difficult year, so I guess the Cardinals decided that having fans in attendance to be disappointed the final two home games was just too much (I kid, I kid).
We’ll see them next year, we hope.
