Report: NFL to allow fans at Pats preseason games, training camp originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
More people may be able to watch the New England Patriots in-person sooner than expected this year. According to Judy Battista, the NFL told owners that nearly all teams — including the Patriots — 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 Gillette Stadium for the regular season, as well.
The Patriots 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 Patriots' first home game is Week 1 when they host the Miami Dolphins. They will also host the Washington Football Team in their first preseason game on Aug. 12.
