Rod Woods says The Detroit Lions will have no fans for their first 2 home games of 2020
It looks like the NFL is going the way of all other major sports with no fans in the stands. Rod Wood of The Detroit Lions have reportedly confirmed there will not be fans for the first 2 home games of the 2020/21 NFL Season. This would mean the first game that Lions fans could attend would be November 1st against the Colts.
Team President Rod Wood
“We have spent considerable time and resources implementing new gameday protocols at Ford Field and are ready to host fans at Lions games once approved by state guidelines, The health and safety of our players, coaches and staff, has been a focal point for all facets of 2020 season planning as demonstrated by being one of the first teams to gain approval from the NFL and NFLPA for meeting training camp COVID-19 requirements. We have the utmost confidence that we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience for fans at our stadium.”
“Lions fans have traditionally created an intimidating environment for visiting teams at Ford Field and, even in a reduced capacity, will be missed when we kick off the season against our division rival, the Chicago Bears. We are hopeful for an opportunity to host fans at the remaining six 2020 home games.”
My Thoughts on The Detroit Lions 2020 Season
I have to be honest. At this point, I don’t care if they go the full season without fans. I just want to watch my football. Even over the course of the pandemic I have been craving football the most. Fantasy football, Monday Night Football, all day Sunday football. I think after the 2020 we all have had we shouldn’t care if they play on the moon. As long as the NFL is playing, Ill be happy. As long as the Lions can stay healthy, we have a good shot this year at making some noise.
