Report: NFL to allow fans at Birds preseason games, training camp originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
More people may be able to watch the Philadelphia Eagles in-person sooner than expected this year. According to Judy Battista, the NFL told owners that nearly all teams — including the Eagles — will be able to allow full capacity for preseason games. Fans will be allowed to watch training camp, as well.
This bodes well for full capacity at Lincoln Financial Field for the regular season, as well.
The Eagles played all eight of their home games without fans during the 2020 season and only played three games in front of spectators all season.
The Eagles' first home game of 2021 is Week 2 when they host the San Francisco 49ers. They will also host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason opener on Aug. 12 and play the New England Patriots in preseason action on Aug. 19.
