At least three of the first four games of the New Orleans Saints 2020 regular season will occur with empty stands.

Detroit has announced that it will not allow fans at its first two home games of the season, against Chicago on Sept. 13 and against the Saints on Oct. 4 at Ford Field.

Previously, the Saints announced that no fans will be allowed at their season opener against Tampa Bay in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sept. 13 while the Las Vegas Raiders will have no fans for their home game with New Orleans at the opening of their new Allegiant Stadium in the first-ever game for the Raiders in a new market.

As of this time, the Saints have not announced any plans for the remaining seven regular season home games, including the Sept. 27 game against Green Bay.
