(Learfield) The Minnesota Vikings are confirming that there will be no fans at U.S. Bank Stadium for at least the first two games.
The Vikings host the rival Green Bay Packers in the season opener September 13th and the Tennessee Titans September 27th. The team issued a statement today, saying, "based on our conversations and the current Minnesota Department of Health guidelines that specify an indoor venue capacity of 250, we have determined it is not the right time to welcome fans back to U-S Bank Stadium."
The Vikings say they will continue to work on plans with the hope of bringing fans back in a safe manner later this season. Green Bay will also play its first two games at Lambeau Field without fans.
