[MOD EDIT] I have included the entire statement from the Saints announcement below.


Mayor LaToya Cantrell, in partnership with the New Orleans Saints, has agreed to a phased and deliberate pilot approach allowing fans to attend Saints games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, beginning with this weekend's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Season Ticket Holders will have access to 3,000 tickets that will be distributed for the Oct. 25 Carolina home game to be played at noon CT.

Barring any change in local health and safety guidelines as any additional changes to crowd size are only possible if current trends continue to remain stable then and only then will capacity increase to 6,000 fans for the Nov. 15 San Francisco and Nov. 22 Atlanta home games.

Capacity would then increase to 15,000 for the Dec. 20 Kansas City and Dec. 25 Minnesota home games, again barring any change in local health and safety guidelines. In addition, a limited number of tickets to satisfy player, team and other required NFL obligations was additionally approved for the remaining games.

In addition to monitoring compliance with all health and safety protocols at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Mayor Cantrell's office will also be strictly enforcing crowd gatherings throughout the Central Business District and French Quarter on game days to ensure all city regulations are being observed.

The Saints and Mayor Cantrell's office encourage all of our fans to wear your mask while in public, practicing good hygiene and maintaining social distance. It is imperative that everyone do their part to make sure all of the progress made by our community in our fight against Covid-19 is not lost and we have no setbacks. This plan is based on creating a healthy environment for our fans to arrive, enjoy and depart Saints home games safely.

The Saints want to thank the tremendous teamwork of Governor John Bel Edwards, the Louisiana Stadium Exposition Board, Scott Woodward and the LSU Athletics Department, ASM Global for their collaborative design of Venue Shield - the best stadium reactivation plan in the NFL, Ochsner Health, the National Football League and of course - Mayor LaToya Cantrell and her entire health and safety team.

The plan only allows for expansion up to 20%. It won't exceed that. 50% is looney-tunes dreamland.

Make it count guys!

In all seriousness our D needs fans. Granted, 3,000 is at least something but our D feeds off the crowd. Without fans, there is no Domefield advantage.

From what im understanding is the lottery will only include ppl who did not opt out .... issue is how many ppl opted out vs not opted out
Another thing I’m curious about is people that sit within the first 8 rows of the plaza that lost their tickets this year but also never officially “opted out”. That’s the group I fall in.

Even though I won’t have my normal seats, I decided not to opt out to see what would possibly be available that they’d relocate me to.
