Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the NFL won’t allow fans into training camps when they hopefully begin later this month.

According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, fans won’t be allowed into camps this year. The good news is NFL teams will be allowed to hold up to two events at stadiums for fans, if fan attendance is permitted under local public health protocols and guidelines.

For these proposed events, fans can’t have contact with coaches or players. They also can’t be in the first eight rows closest to the field at these events, but it’s still good to see there should be some type of event for fans this year.

FOX 9’s Dawn Mitchell has more on those:

Fan attendance is one of the best parts of training camp, as they get a rare up-close look at their favorite teams and players. They also get a chance to get autographs and even photos with players after practice.

Hopefully, the Bengals find a way to help out their fans with these two events.
