The Saints and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell have announced an agreement to have a limited number of fans back in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome over the remainder of the season under a phased approach.

They will start with 3,000 tickets being distributed to season-ticket holders for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

If local guidelines remain in place and COVID-19 cases remain stable, attendance will increase to 6,000 fans for November games and 15,000 in December.
