Broncos announce that no fans will attend home opener on Sept. 14

The Broncos announced Friday that they will not host fans for the Sept. 14 home opener against the Tennessee Titans.

In a statement, the Broncos said they remain “hopeful that we can host a limited number of fans on a gradually increasing basis beginning early this season.”

The Broncos host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sept. 28, but then have three weeks until their next home game (Oct. 18 vs. Miami).

“It’s disappointing,” coach Vic Fangio said after practice. “I watch a lot of sports and it’s just not the same without fans there. It isn’t. I’ve always known fans to be a big part of pro sports in particular and we’re going to miss our fans. They give us a great boost and advantage at home and we love playing in front of them and there’s a love affair between the fans and players and team.

“Hopefully at some point here, we can keep doing the job with COVID(-19) that we’re doing in the NFL and eventually get some fans in there.”
