Sports Teams In PA Lobbying To Have Fan In Seats

By 93.7 The Fan

HARRISBURG (AP/Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Several professional, semi-professional, amateur and college sports teams have submitted plans to the Pennsylvania Department of Health to have fans in the stands.

The Wolf administration is declining to reveal which organization, teams or colleges have submitted plans, or whether it has approved any.

The Post-Gazette reports that both the Pirates and Steelers are putting presentations together to send to the governor’s office.

Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC hold their first home game, without fans, next Wednesday.

But the administration said on Friday it continues to discourage spectators or fans from attending games to prevent transmitting the coronavirus.

Penn State declines to say whether it has submitted a plan but says it’s working with various governing bodies on scenarios “for a possible return this fall consistent with physical distancing, mask wearing and other preventative safety steps.”

The Associated Press contributed this report.
