The Latest: Ravens to have 7,000 fans for Steelers game

By The Associated Press

The Baltimore Ravens will have a crowd of about 7,000 fans at their next home game on Nov. 1 against Pittsburgh.

This will be the first time that ticket holders will be allowed in the stadium. Because of the pandemic, the Ravens had no fans at their home opener and were permitted only 250 immediate family members of players, coaches and front-office personnel at the next two home games.

The increase in fans comes after the team received approval from Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Baltimore Mayor Young to fill the stadium to 10% capacity.

The plan calls to limit the number of fans in the lower bowl to 3,000, to 800 in the club level and 2,800 in the upper level. Several hundred fans will in the suite levels.

Baltimore is off this weekend. The Pittsburgh game was originally set for Sunday but was changed after the Steelers and Titans moved their Oct. 4 game to Sunday.
