On Tuesday per Nick Wojton, Erie County official Mark Poloncarz announced that fans of the Buffalo Bills will be allowed to attend home games at Highmark Stadium this fall if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Poloncarz’s statement was clear on the policy the county would use.
As millions of doses of vaccines are administered across the nation each day, the 12s are on the fast track to returning to the electric environment that is Lumen Field. Soon, vaccines will be readily available for anyone over the age of 16 that wants one. The opportunity is present for those who are looking forward to being at Lumen this fall to be a part of the acceptable group.
Seahawks fans to return to Lumen Field in 2021?
There is no doubt that the 12s lend a massive hand to the home team by making Lumen Field one of the most difficult venues for opposing teams to play in. In fact, some would even attribute Seattle’s general success over the past nine years in part to the rowdy fanbase.
No one knows this more than Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and it’s no coincidence that Russell will be co-hosting a vaccine special Sunday, April 18 on NBC. He above all others knows the advantage that the Seahawks draw from having fans in the stands, and he wants the 12s back.
Hopefully, the remaining 29 stadiums follow in the footsteps of Highmark and allow fans to safely attend games this fall. Lumen is one of the most rocking atmospheres in football, and it’s exciting to know that there’s a great chance of having the 12s back with the team in the fall, rooting the Hawks on to success in 2021!
