(ESPN) – The NFL is making plans to open its stadiums to full capacity for the 2021 season, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters after the first day of a two-day virtual meeting of owners, Goodell said: “All of us in the NFL want to see every one of our fans back. Football is simply not the same without fans, and we expect to have full stadiums in the upcoming season.”

Some of that expectation is based on factors beyond the NFL’s control.

The league never established an attendance cap while playing during the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, deferring instead to individual teams in conjunction with state and local regulations.

Attendance dipped more than 90% compared to 2019 and a total of 1.2 million fans were included in attendance counts for the entire regular season and postseason. League revenues fell accordingly.
