All 32 NFL teams have been given the green light to welcome full capacity crowds for home games during the 2021 season.

The NFL said late last month that 30 teams had been given approval by local authorities and that the Broncos and Colts were on the same path. The Broncos announced they received the go-ahead early this month and the Colts did the same on Tuesday.

Lucas Oil Stadium operated at a limited capacity last season and Colts owner Jim Irsay said in a statement that he’s looking forward to seeing a full house again.

“We were fortunate to be able to host fans in 2020 through the pandemic, and those fans were as loud and proud as ever,” Irsay said. “But gamedays at Lucas Oil Stadium are like family reunions, and it wasn’t quite the same without our entire Colts family alongside us. So we can’t wait to open the stadium doors to all our fans so they can take this journey with us as we work to bring a Super Bowl title back to Indianapolis.”

The Colts also announced that they will have fans in attendance for this summer’s training camp in Westfield, Indiana. No fans were permitted at last year’s camp, which took place in Indianapolis.

  1. It’s going to be great to have the crowds back at the games. The fans are a big part of the NFL experience. The games last year, without fans or with a handful of fans, just wasn’t the same.

    It will be interesting to see how some of last year’s rookie QBs adjust to the fan noise in opposition stadiums.

  2. “Will the stadiums and/or networks continue to pump fake crowd noises?”

    Well it is the Colts the article is about after all.

  3. Just what until the Covid Delta variant spreads to the whole country and we’re no where near herd immunity due to so many anti vaxxers

  4. Why wouldn’t they, at this point? Why would any team limit fans? Baseball stadiums have opened up, and I haven’t heard of any spikes.

  5. The COVID variants will be a big problem for the unvaccinated people, but so far the vaccines are proving to work well agaisnt the variants.

    I didn’t see anything mentioned in the article, but is the NFL allowing full capacity of unvaccinated and unmasked people?

  6. Patriot fans crying on every Colts article still to this day is truly hilarious. They know everything they ever won vs the Colts has an asterisk next to it and have to convince themselves it is legitimate. Major inferiority complex clowns to NYC so they live with it.

    Pot….meet kettle. And what have the Indy Colts ever won?

  8. Patriots fans don’t cry on any Colts article. There’s not enough opportunity or need because they’ve been irrelevant since the fake Deflategate scandal they initiated due to the beatdowns Brady and the Pats put on them repeatedly. The only stories about the Colts are usually due to some incoherent thing the owner said or some new toy he bought at auction. Always amusing.

    The greatest dynasty kicked them to the curb years ago and they haven’t recovered to this day.

  9. will the team be hanging a banner for this? I hope so. They were runner up in AFC game and a banner was hung and this is much bigger
