As the NFL and NFLPA still hammer out an agreement that will lead to play this season, franchises across the nation are starting to make plans for hosting games in the midst of a global pandemic. Thursday, the Panthers announced that there will be reduced seating at Bank of America stadium and provided PSL owners with several options due to the change:
- PSL Owners will have the opportunity to select from a predetermined set of games.
- Due to a socially-distant seat configuration that meets health and safety protocols, it is unlikely that PSL Owners will sit in their exact seat location.
- Stadium capacity could change through the course of the season, and PSL Owners will be promptly notified of any potential ticket impact.
- PSL Owners will only be permitted to purchase seats within their specific price level. However, if inventory is unavailable, adjustments will be made on a case-by-case basis.
- Season tickets will revert back to current PSL seat locations for 2021.
- Enhanced protective measures will be implemented during event days. While plans are still being finalized, some of the protective measures include: Health screening protocols, required face coverings, access to sanitizing stations throughout the facility, contactless/cashless transactions and physical distancing amplified via stadium signage.
PSL owners can either opt-in to using tickets in 2020 or to opt-out without penalty. Those who choose to opt out will have the option to carry credit over to the 2021 season and future ticket purchases or receive a full refund. Fans who purchased single game tickets, which are no longer available, will receive a full refund from Ticket Master.
The exact number of fans that will be allowed at Bank of American Stadium has yet to be announced.
