The Pittsburgh Steelers said only half of the team’s individual game tickets for the 2020 season will be sold to the public so the team can allow for the possibility of social distancing related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The team announced Friday that individual tickets for the 2020 season are available through Ticketmaster. But team spokesman Burt Lauten says the club withheld 50% of the allotment as a “proactive” measure should the NFL use social distancing guidelines.
The NFL released its 2020 schedule last month. The Steelers will play 10 games at Heinz Field, beginning with a preseason meeting with Tampa Bay on Aug. 14.
The Steelers will make full refunds available “if the NFL or the team cancels a game and it cannot be replayed, or if it is played under conditions that prohibit fans from attending.”
If games are postponed or rescheduled, the tickets will be valid for the new date.
