“The attendance number for this game was determined following discussions with the Marion County (Ind.) Public Health Department and were set to meet local, NFL, and CDC guidelines to help limit the spread of COVID-19,” the Colts stated on its website.

The seating capacity for this game has increased from the 7,500 fans allowed at last Sunday’s game when the Colts faced the New York Jets. Normal capacity at Lucas Oil Stadium is 63,000, but capacity had to be reduced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Colts’ website, single-game tickets for the Bengals-Colts game start at $48. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets will be sold in “pods” to ensure physical distancing between unrelated groups.
