The Green Bay Packers won't have fans at Lambeau Field for at least the first two games of the season.

Previously, Packers president Mark Murphy had said he was hopeful the team could host between 10,000 and 12,000 fans.

"Lambeau Field will not be the same without our fans' energetic support in the stands," Murphy said in a statement. "Given the extraordinary circumstances this year and the additional protocols in place, though, we determined it was best to take incremental steps to start the regular season. These two games will allow us to focus our attention on safely conducting games inside the stadium with all necessary participants.

"We are hopeful that we will be able to host fans for games later in the season, should conditions allow. We will continue to consult with community healthcare and public health officials on the pandemic conditions in our area. We ask our fans to continue to help by wearing masks and maintaining social distancing guidelines."

The earliest possible game Green Bay may have fans in the stadium is on November 1st against the Vikings.
