The Rams, Chargers and 49ers have all announced they will begin the season without fans in attendance at their home games.
“After careful consideration and discussion with State and local health officials, the Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams and SoFi Stadium have announced that Rams and Chargers games will be held without fans in attendance until further notice,” the Chargers and Rams said in a joint statement.
The teams’ NFL neighbor in Northern California issued a similar statement Tuesday.
“We can confirm that we will begin our season on September 13th against the Arizona Cardinals without fans in attendance,” the 49ers said in their statement, and later used the word “if” in regard to having fans at Levi’s Stadium at any point during the season.
The Chargers and Rams are entering their first season sharing the newly constructed SoFi Stadium.
The Rams are scheduled to open Week 1 at home on Sept. 13 against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The Chargers’ first home game is scheduled for Sept. 20 against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2.
