INDIANAPOLIS– The Indianapolis Colts have been approved to host full capacity games at Lucas Oil Stadium for the 2021 season, team officials said Tuesday.  Normal capacity for Colts home games at the stadium is 63,000.

“We were fortunate to be able to host fans in 2020 through the pandemic, and those fans were as loud and proud as ever,” Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay said.  “But gamedays at Lucas Oil Stadium are like family reunions, and it wasn’t quite the same without our entire Colts family alongside us.

The decision followed extensive consultation with the Marion County Public Health Department, which this week approved full capacity games to begin the season. 

“As COVID-19 is still affecting the city and state, the Colts organization and stadium officials will continue to be vigilant about keeping fans safe and healthy, but most in-stadium protocols from last season will be relaxed or eliminated,” the organization said in a news release. 

The club and stadium will release specific information regarding any remaining guidelines in the upcoming weeks.

Single-game tickets for the entire 2021 season are on sale now at Colts.com/Tickets or Ticketmaster.com.  (Inventory already is very limited for the first two home games against Seattle and the Los Angeles Rams.)

“We can’t wait to reopen the stadium doors to all our fans so they can take this journey with us as we work to bring a Super Bowl title back to Indianapolis,” Irsay said.

Last season, the Colts were one of the few teams to host fans at every home game. Club officials worked with MCPHD to set attendance numbers for each game to help meet local, NFL, and CDC guidelines.
