Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Seahawks will again play in an empty CenturyLink Field when they return home to host the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11.
The Seahawks have already hosted four games without fans this season, wins over New England, Dallas, Minnesota and San Francisco. Next Thursday’s game will be Seattle’s third prime-time game at home, having previously hosted New England and Minnesota on Sunday Night Football.
In a statement, the team announced, “through ongoing collaboration with local public health and government officials, we have decided we will continue without fans in attendance at our home game on November 19 vs. Arizona. Should they determine conditions have improved enough for us to host fans in a limited capacity in December, we will announce those plans at a later date.”
