Jets will not sell individual game tickets when NFL schedule is released
The New York Jets offered another reminder of the uncertainty regarding the NFL season thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jets announced Wednesday that they will not be putting individual game tickets on sale when the 2020 NFL schedule is released Thursday, citing “the changing conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“We are preparing to play the 2020 NFL season as scheduled with increased protocols and safety measures for all players, personnel, and attendees,” the team said in a statement. “We will make any necessary adjustments in order to conduct games in as safe and efficient manner as possible, with all decisions based on the latest advice of medical and public health officials, as well as in full compliance with current and future government regulations.
“Given the changing conditions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, individual game tickets will not go on sale tomorrow when the schedule is released. We believe this is the prudent thing to do in order to provide the best experience and service for our fans at this time. We will inform you of the official individual ticket on sale date for the 2020 season as well as any other updates as they become available.”
This is probably smart. Even if the NFL season is played, there is definitely a chance fan attendance will be limited or even prohibited. That already seems apparent for one team, and it’s entirely likely that more will follow. The Jets are just doing the prudent thing by waiting things out until there’s more clarity.
