Cardinals increasing fan attendance to 4,200 for next 2 home games
The Arizona Department of Health Services has given the Arizona Cardinals clearance to increase fan attendance to approximately 4,200 in each of their next two home games.
Following a bye this week, the Cardinals host the Miami Dolphins on Nov. 8 and the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 15.
The increase in attendance comes after the Cardinals were able to hold 1,200 fans for their Sunday Night Football game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Seats for the upcoming games will be made available to season ticker members starting in account seniority with those who did not purchase tickets to the Seahawks game, the team said in a press release.
“As with the Seattle game, seats will only be sold in quantities of two and assigned in adherence with all local and state COVID-19 guidelines,” Arizona’s release read. “Season ticket members will be contacted by email with more details.”
Masks will be mandatory, and the 4,200 tickets will be divided into pods of two and will be positioned on the east and west sidelines and the north end zone. Unavailable seats will be zip-tied to help ensure social distancing.
Game and parking tickets will be distributed digitally and scanned without contact, while concessions will also be contact-less.
A determination on attendance for the remaining three home games will be made at a later time, the team said.
