Saints Announce No Fans for the 2020 Season Opener at the Superdome Vs Tampa

There’s no doubt that the Saints home opener in 2020 would have had a special feel as the team takes on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Problem is – it will be done without fans.

The team announced on Wednesday the season opener at the Superdome will be minus fans, a blow to the team that badly wanted to see Brady in his new uniform go up against the Saints.

“While we have put together a comprehensive plan that will allow us to safely host fans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, that plan has always been dependent on how effectively we, as a community and region, are battling Covid-19,” Saints president Dennis Lauscha said in a statement released by the team.

“We have given this situation as much time as possible to see the type of improvement necessary to welcome fans into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but unfortunately, medical experts indicate that trends are not improving rapidly enough for us to begin the season with fan attendance.

“As we have noted, while we are not allowing fans in the first home game, we remain cautiously optimistic that fans may be able to attend our September 27 game vs. Green Bay, but stress that fans need to remain flexible and adaptable in case we cannot. We are keenly aware of the outstanding home field advantage that our fans provide our team, and we are as eager as anyone to welcome them back.”
