The maximum capacity allowed for the stadium is now 7,500 and that includes the team, media, stadium personnel and the fans.

“We have been working very closely with state and local officials, public health experts, and the National Football League on a number of scenarios to safely bring Eagles fans back to Lincoln Financial Field,” President Don Smolenski shared. “After many thoughtful and active discussions, we are thrilled to announce that the fan experience will return to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday.”

“On behalf of the Philadelphia Eagles, I would like to thank Governor Wolf, Mayor Kenney, and their respective representatives for the support and guidance over these past few months,” he added. “We will all continue to stay in close communication and will be prepared to adjust and adapt as needed.”

Tickets to Sunday’s 1 p.m. against the Ravens and next Thursday night’s game against the New York Giants will go on sale on Wednesday, first to Season ticket members and then to the public. Tickets for the rest of the season are to go on sale at a later date.
