The Tennessee Titans will play without any fans in attendance for Sunday’s home tilt against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
After that, a limited number of spectators will be allowed at Nissan Stadium.
Per Erik Bacharach of the Nashville Tennessean, Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced that the Titans could have up to 10 percent (approximately 6,900 spectators) capacity for their Week 4 home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Titans will be able to allow even more fans after that. Per Bacharach, the Titans can have up to 12.5 percent capacity for the Week 5 tilt against the Buffalo Bills, and up to 15 percent for Week 6 against the Houston Texans.
The Titans outlined several safety protocols on their website. As is the case with the other teams who are allowing a limited capacity, the Titans are making masks mandatory at Nissan Stadium.
More than 300 hand sanitizing stations will be set up across the stadium. Employees will undergo testing accordingly, and surfaces will be frequently sanitized.
Bacharach noted that the Titans could have a “maximum” 21 percent capacity for the Titans’ November and December home games.
Tennessee also has home games against the Chicago Bears (Week 8), Indianapolis Colts (Week 10), Cleveland Browns (Week 13) and Detroit Lions (Week 15). Three of their final four games will be on the road – with the regular season finale taking place against the Texans on June 17.
The Titans defeated the Denver Broncos 16-14 in their Week 1 opener on the road. Stephen Gostkowski, who missed three field goals and an extra point, kicked the game-winner in the waning seconds. The winner of the Titans-Jaguars game on Sunday will sit atop the AFC South standings.
In Week 1, only the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars had some fans in attendance. The Cleveland Browns had a limited capacity for their Thursday game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Colts, Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins will also have some fans in attendance for their home openers this Sunday.
