The Steelers have announced that attendance for their December 6th game against Washington will be limited to family and friends of players and the organization.
The move comes after Governor Wolf and Dr. Levine announced new orders and advisories on Monday that limit the amount of people at outdoor events to 2,500.
The statement from Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten says, "Today, Governor Wolf's Office and State Health Director Dr. Levine issued new orders and advisories which will affect our games in December, starting with the game against Washington on December 6. That order will now limit Heinz Field to no more than 2,500 people in the building, including players, coaches, stadium staff, etc. Consequently, we will have to restrict fans in the seating bowl to family and friends of players and the organization. Fans who have selected seats for the December 6 game will receive communication directly from our Ticket Office regarding credits or refunds."
This, however, does NOT impact the Steelers vs. Ravens game on Thanksgiving night at Heinz Field. The statement say that, "fans holding tickets to Thursday's game will again be required to adhere to already published protocols, including requirements for wearing a mask and social distancing."
If the order remains in effect for the entire month of December, it would also impact fans being able to attend the game against the Colts on December 27th.
