Great news football fans, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell expects the stands to be full for the 2021 NFL season. That means our Metlife Stadium tailgate will be rocking again as the Jets have 9 home games and the Giants have 8 this season.
The NFL is making plans to open its stadiums to full capacity for the 2021 season, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters after the first day of a two-day virtual meeting of owners, Goodell said: “All of us in the NFL want to see every one of our fans back. Football is simply not the same without fans, and we expect to have full stadiums in the upcoming season.”
In some cases, the NFL will need local municipalities to sign off on attendance plans in order to fully open up their stadiums for 2021. Vaccine rates might also play a factor. A total of 18 NFL stadiums are in use as mass vaccination sites and to date, 1.5 million shots have been administered at those sites, according to the league.
The Mets and Yankees are already at 20% attendance for their home games. So for the first time in what seems like forever, things are headed in the right direction.
We will have game information on the site soon. Once the NFL releases the schedule this month we will open up signups. After missing last year we are so excited to be back in the parking lot this season with die-hard football fans. Away Game Tailgate is your home on the road.
