No Fans for Pitt Games at Heinz Field in September



Pitt will not have fans in the stands at Heinz Field through the month of September, the team announced on Thursday.

The Panthers will have three home games in the month, as they’re set to host Austin Peay on Sept. 12, Syracuse on Sept. 19 and Louisville on Sept. 26.

“Although we are disappointed for our loyal and passionate fans, the Panther Pitt student section and especially our student-athletes’ families and friends, the University of Pittsburgh respects and understands the guidelines set forth by state and county health officials,” athletic director Heather Lyke said in a press release.

“We will remain in communication with the appropriate agencies and continue to explore possible fan attendance—in each of our fall sports’ home venues—for contests beyond September.”

Current Pennsylvania Health Department guidance prohibits outdoor gatherings of more than 250 people, which would preclude fans from attending games, regardless of Pitt’s decisions.

Pitt is proving ticketholders three options, they can convert the price of their tickets into a tax-deductible gift, roll the dollar amount over toward 2021 tickets, or request a refund.

The Lunacy never ends and people just march along with whatever our elected officials command us to do whether the constitution is violated or not. We fans can not attend Pitt games social distanced and wearing masks, but we can pack’em in at Costco, Sams or Walmart…or even worse we can march by the 1000’s,with our governor no less, and throw the Covid health guidelines out the window. If you have not realized it yet, things will NEVER be normal again and the sports we love are gone forever.

Couldn’t agree more. So many blind people and mindless sheep out there. The four major sports are marxist organizations. It’s funny, COVID doesn’t exist anymore on CNN, FOX, NBC, and the rest of the satanic MSM.
