Earlier this week, Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi sent a message to Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf pleaded that the Panthers at least be allowed to let the player’s families into the stands for games at Heinz Field.

On Friday, the Baltimore Ravens announced that they will be allowing 250 “immediate family member of players, coaches and front office staff members in the stands at M&T Bank Stadium,” a statement from the Ravens organization said.

"This is an important step for us as we continue working toward the possibility of welcoming a larger number of fans at some point this season," Ravens President Dick Cass stated. "Ultimately, we all want to do what's in the best interest of our community."

Family member that do attend must live in the same local home as the player, coach or staff member, wear a mask and follow proper COVID-19 guidelines.

The Steelers released a statement on Thursday that they hope some fans can be back in the stands at Heinz Field on October 11.

In a statement, Steelers’ director of communications Burt Lauten tells 93.7 The Fan, “As we previously announced, we will not have any fans at our home games in September. However, we remain optimistic about hosting a limited amount of fans at Heinz Field beginning with our game against the Philadelphia Eagles on October 11.
