NFL Executive Vice President Planning For Full Stadiums Next Season

 

Vincent spoke about the upcoming season on The Team 980’s The Brian Mitchell Show. “We are planning to have full stadiums until the medical community tells us otherwise,” he said.

“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.”

 

According to NBC Sports, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent says the league is preparing for the 2020 season as if fans will be in the stadiums. He said on The Brian Mitchell Show on Team 890 on Friday:

“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.

“We also know that we have to plan for half stadiums. Three-quarters. So we’re planning for all of these different scenarios. But first and foremost, we’re making every effort, working with the medical community, if we can have those stadiums with all people until they tell us otherwise when that time comes, that’s our plan. That’s our plan of action.”

Planning for full or partially-full stadiums to start the upcoming season certainly makes sense. The NFL is trying to be safe about the entire situation.
