NASHVILLE — Tuesday’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills will be the first Titans game open to fans in 2020. Capacity is limited to 12.5 percent as the team gradually builds to the goal of 21 percent in November through the end of the season. Twenty-one percent is the maximum Nissan Stadium can accommodate under current CDC regulations.
The Titans created the Safe Stadium Plan in collaboration with the City of Nashville Mayor’s Office, Metro Nashville Public Health Department and local and national health experts. Key components include:
- Socially-distant seating pods accommodating parties of one to a maximum of six people
- Mobile ticketing and parking, to eliminate physical contact while scanning passes
- Mandatory face coverings at all times, except when actively eating or drinking
- Over 400 hand sanitizing stations throughout the stadium
- Individually-wrapped food items at concession stands
- Elimination of all smoking and vaping areas in the facility
- Health screenings and personal protective equipment for all Nissan Stadium employees
- A comprehensive cleaning plan during events for bathrooms and near concession areas

Local breast cancer survivors honored during Bills v. Titans game
As the NFL raises awareness for cancer prevention and detection through its Crucial Catch initiative, the Titans will virtually honor multiple cancer survivors during Tuesday’s pre-game festivities. Nashville singer/songwriter Kelly Lang, a breast cancer survivor, will perform the national anthem (pre-recorded), and several local breast cancer survivors will be honored in a video package as 12th Titan. They are: Emma Sweat of Cookeville, Tamela Krompic of Gallatin, Jennifer Gray of Madison, Corina Coulas of Goodlettsville and Amy Perry of Murfreesboro.
The Crucial Catch mission is to fight cancer through early detection and risk reduction. The NFL, its clubs, players, the NFL Player Association and the American Cancer Society are committed to providing individuals with the tools they need to help them better understand early detection and ways to reduce their cancer risk. Each year, every NFL team raises awareness during their Crucial Catch game, which features on-field and in-stadium Crucial Catch elements. Crucial Catch games also present a special opportunity to honor cancer survivors and those currently battling cancer.
