We’re all desperate for some positive news that will increase our optimism for a college football season with fans.
But the news keeps giving us the opposite.
Today, the Green Bay Packers became the first NFL organization to acknowledge the possibility of playing in empty stadiums. It’s in no way a final decision for the future of Lambeau Field on Sundays this fall, but the Packers sent a letter to its fans to warn them of the possibility.
“Although the organization remains optimistic, there is a possibility that Lambeau Field will be unable to host fans for games this season,” it read. The letter also says face masks will be required if fans are allowed in a limited capacity.
Last we heard here in Kentucky, UK season tickets holders hadn’t been given much indication in any direction from the UK ticket office. It’s been mostly quiet, several season ticket holders have told KSR. But if the Green Bay Packers are preparing for a season without fans, it sure isn’t a good sign for college kids playing on a college campus.
We need a shift in momentum ASAP. We can’t lose football.
