The National Football League (NFL) team Washington Football Team announced recently that it will allow fans back to its digs – FedExField (US) – for the 2021 season at full capacity.

‘NBC Sports’ stated that the team had only a total of 3,000 fans attend its home games in 2020 as COVID-19 threw life out of kilter and left a trail of deaths behind in the United States.

The Washington Football Team is a professional American football team based in the Washington (US) metropolitan area. Formerly known as the Washington Redskins, the team competes in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the NFC East division.

The 82,000-capacity FedExField, originally Jack Kent Cooke Stadium, is an American football stadium located near the Capital Beltway in Prince George’s County, Maryland, five miles East of Washington, D.C. The stadium is the home of the Washington Football Team of the National Football League (NFL).

Washington will continue to deploy safety and public health measures at FedExField as the United States is still not totally free from the coronavirus scourge.

‘NBC Sports’ further stated that the Washington team President, Jason Wright, said in a statement, “As we have always said the safety of our fans, employees, coaching staff, and players are our top priority. We take our responsibility to create a safe return for fans very seriously, and we do so with the confidence and collaboration of our State and local public health authorities with whom we stay in constant contact to assure proper protocols are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Following the 2020 season, our organization was praised for its infection control approaches, and we now endeavor to build on this track record by providing a safe and fun 2021 gameday experience for our fans, the best in all of football.”

The State of Maryland presently allows outdoor venues to operate at 50 percent capacity. The Washington Football Team has recently held events at FedExField, including the team’s 2021 NFL Draft night party.

Those events have stuck to COVID-19 protocols, including requiring all attendees to wear face coverings and to follow strict physical distancing rules.
