Seattle Seahawks will play first three home games without fans

The Seattle Seahawks will play at least their first three home games without fans in the stands at CenturyLink Field.

The team said in a statement Wednesday the decision was made in conjunction with public health officials and the office of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.

Seattle will be without fans for games on Sept. 20 vs. New England, Sept. 27 vs. Dallas, and Oct. 11 vs. Minnesota. The earliest the Seahawks may have fans is Nov. 1 against San Francisco.

While the team hopes conditions will improve as the season progresses, it will “follow the lead of public health and government officials to make future decisions about game day.” If it’s determined a limited capacity will be allowed later in the season, the Seahawks will reach out to season ticket holders at that time.
