The Titans will have fans in attendance for their home opener after all.
To be precise, .0029% of Nissan Stadium’s 69,173 capacity will be filled for Titans-Jaguars on Sunday thanks to a new initiative by the team that will allow a fan to win two passes to the game.
The “Home Alone Sweepstakes” will allow the winner and their guest to be among the only fans to view the Titans’ home opener live from Nissan Stadium. Nashville mayor John Cooper announced in August that Titans’ home games would be played without fans in attendance through at least September due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As much as we wish we were welcoming more fans to Nissan Stadium this Sunday, we were given the ability to host a very select few and felt like our fans deserved to have this opportunity,” Titans chief marketing and revenue officer Gil Beverly said in a release. “We look forward to showing our guests the new Safe Stadium health and safety protocols during their game experience. Thank you to Mayor Cooper and the Metro Nashville Public Health Department for making this possible.”
The “Home Alone Sweepstakes” is open for entries and will close at noon Friday. Fans can enter by filling out the form found at https://www.tennesseetitans.com/fans/promotions/home-alone-sweepstakes/. Only one entry per person and/or valid email address is allowed.
Titans team president Burke Nihill said earlier this month that if the team gets the green light to host fans at Nissan Stadium in October, the venue could hold up to 22% capacity with COVID-19 protocols in place. Nihill added other configurations would be considered that would support fewer than 22% and “still be worth the while of our opening and getting some fans in the door to enjoy a Titans game.”
