The NFL season is still over three seasons away, and a lot can still happen. However, the NFL is planning to have full stadiums for the upcoming season.

Troy Vincent, the NFL EVP of Football Operations appeared on The Team 980 in Washington D.C. this weekend. He said that the league is fully planning for stadiums to be at full capacity, but obviously things can change. Here’s what Vincent had to say.

“We are planning to have full stadiums until the medical community tells us otherwise. Now remember when we’re talking — we’re talking about September, August, September. So there’s a lot that can happen here. So we’re planning for full stadiums.”

Recently, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced that they will be making 50 percent of their tickets available to fans because of social distancing.

Again, obviously a lot can happen between now and then, but it definitely is optimistic that they’re preparing to have stadiums with fans in September.
