The New Orleans Saints’ first preseason game at home is set for Monday, August 23rd at 7 p.m. They’ll face the Jacksonville Jaguars. The regular season opener is Sunday, September 12th when they take on Green Bay.
If you plan on heading to the Big Easy for any of the games, the team released the following statement Friday regarding gameday procedures for fans as of June 25, 2021.
Based on the current City of New Orleans policy, if we were to start the season today, the city of New Orleans would require fans to wear masks to host an event with full capacity.
The New Orleans Saints would not, and will not, require proof of vaccination for fans attending our games. As our community vaccination rate continues to improve over the summer, we fully expect and intend to begin the season without masks being required.
Additionally, 100 percent of our coaching and football operations staff are fully vaccinated, and we are amongst the top three teams in the NFL in player vaccination rate. As we have stated in the past, we encourage everyone eligible in our community to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their families, and their neighbors. This will further ensure our intentions of not requiring a mask to attend our games.
