No fans at Philadelphia Eagles games amid coronavirus spike

The Philadelphia Eagles will not have fans in the stands at Lincoln Financial Field for the foreseeable future as a result of new restrictions on public gatherings put in place by the city following an increase in coronavirus cases.

The team began communicating that news to its season-ticket holders Monday afternoon.

Philadelphia's next home game is Monday, Nov. 30 against the Seattle Seahawks -- a rematch of last season's wild-card playoff game.

The Eagles started the season with no fans but were cleared to host upward of 7,500 people at their games in mid-October, including personnel. That lasted all of three games before the latest restrictions were put in place.

A little more than half of the teams across the league continue to host a limited number of fans at their home games.
