Gov. Tom Wolfe released a statement to the press today saying “professional sports are allowed to practice or play in the yellow and green phases without on-site fans if they have a coronavirus safety plan.” This is a HUGE step for all major professional sports in the city going foward especially the Eagles.
Tom Wolfe made it clear that no fans will be able to attend any time soon. He noted, “No fans or spectators may be permitted on interior or exterior venue property,” He also added that the plan must be approved by the State Health Department and include testing or screening and monitoring of all players and personnel.
The city is in the red phase til June 4th then moves to the yellow immediately 12 o’clock midnight strikes. This means the Eagles could return to the football field as soon as June 5th. Eagles can begin to hold their seasonal training camp that day. This is will be huge for the teams comradery. Everyone getting together meshing together, building that chemistry Doug Pederson praises. The first step to the regular season is now under way.
Again as of now there will be no fans allowed in stadiums, but that can always change. Regardless Eagles football is right around the corner and we all should be PUMPED!!! GO BIRDS.
