No one knows whether we will have fans in the stands for NFL games or if we will have football at all this fall. Though, on the business side of operations, teams are planning out the scenario of having some paying customers in the bleachers on game days.
The Ravens have deferred 2020 season tickets to the 2021 campaign and will limit fans at home games to 14,000 people if allowed by state law.

“To offer a proper level of safety for fans who want to attend games, a reduction in capacity is necessary,” stated Ravens president Dick Cass. “We are disappointed that this will be a disruption for many ticket buyers, but we have an obligation to our fans and our community to keep M&T Bank Stadium as safe as possible.”
Giving season ticket-holders the first opportunity at the tickets might seem like the right thing to do. However, the organization has 62,000 season tickets holders, so there’s no feasible way to decide which ones get the opportunities.
“With over 62,000 season tickets already sold, there is no equitable way to accommodate in a limited stadium capacity all PSL Owners who are interested in maintaining season tickets for 2020,” stated senior vice president of ticket sales and operations Baker Koppelman. “Under these unusual circumstances, it’s best to simplify the ticket sales process and allow fans to decide which games they want to attend, while giving our PSL Owners priority in accessing tickets.”
