City Clarifies Public Event Ban’s Impact on Sports

Stadiums and other private property are among those that are exempt from yesterday’s ban on public gatherings or special events of 50 people or more.

The ban covers only events that require City permits and take place on public property.

The City announced that with regards to the 2020 NFL season, the Eagles and the City of Philadelphia remain in close communication and are committed to the safety of both players, staff, and fans.

Currently, in the initial “modified” Green Phase, outdoor events involving more than 50 people are prohibited in Philadelphia. These restrictions also apply to Lincoln Financial Field. However, the situation is “fluid” and the Eagles will continue to communicate directly with season ticket members and fans as the season approaches.

All other events and activities not covered by the moratorium must follow applicable guidelines set forth by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health today has confirmed an additional 144 cases of COVID-19, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 27,867. There have been an additional nine deaths, bringing the total number of fatalities to 1,646.
