The National Football League is preparing for a 2020 regular season, despite skepticism among the masses involving the current global coronavirus pandemic. While some are questioning whether games are going to be played this season, others are wondering when fans might be able to attend games again.
As for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who opened their facilities Tuesday to non-football personnel and rehabilitation for players, they are pressing on as if the 2020 season will go off without a hitch.
In other words, they are planning on having a limited number of tickets for sale for all 10 home games, including the two preseason games, this Friday at 10:00 a.m. ET.
This per Brooke Pryor of ESPN:
Steelers announce a limited number of tickets will go on sale Friday at 10am for the team’s home preseason and regular-season games.— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) May 19, 2020
No details about a refund or rain check policy in the release should there be a schedule shift.
As Pryor suggests, there have been no details about a refund or rain check policy, although I’m sure one will be initiated at some point. It was announced the Steelers would lose over $150 million dollars if fans are not able to attend games in 2020, something which could not just impact the organization’s bottom line, but also the 2021 salary cap number.
But that is a different story altogether.
In the meantime, if you are looking to try and get to Heinz Field in 2020, and want to hope for the best, tickets go on sale this Friday and can be purchased on Ticketmaster’s website. If you don’t feel comfortable attending games, even if fans are allowed to attend, then you can sit back in your favorite chair and enjoy the game from the friendly confines of your home.
