Packers announce fans will be unable to attend first two home games

The team will reevaluate after the first two games to determine whether fans can attend later games

From the team:

In the team's release, Mark Murphy says the following:

Lambeau Field will not be the same without our fans' energetic support in the stands. Given the extraordinary circumstances this year and the additional protocols in place, though, we determined it was best to take incremental steps to start the regular season. These two games will allow us to focus our attention on safely conducting games inside the stadium with all necessary participants.

We are hopeful that we will be able to host fans for games later in the season, should conditions allow. We will continue to consult with community healthcare and public health officials on the pandemic conditions in our area. We ask our fans to continue to help by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing guidelines.

So the Packers first two home games against the Lions and Falcons will be played in front of an empty stadium. We'll have to wait and see about the remainder of the schedule.

If the Pack joins the kneelers, then they will truly get the fans they deserve.
