After playing the 2020 season in an eerily quiet Lumen Field, the Seahawks announced Tuesday they will be able to welcome fans back into the stadium at full capacity to open the 2021 season, Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reports.

The Seahawks have received approval from local health officials and the NFL to reopen the 68,000-seat Lumen Field, which has historically ranked as one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.

“Can’t wait to see those 12s — can’t wait to see the 12s,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week. “I know they’re coming. I know somebody is going to be in those stands. Can’t wait to get you out there.”

Under the state’s reopening protocols, fans will not be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend Seahawks games, but the team announced that fans who are not vaccinated will be required to wear masks.

The state’s reopening guidelines for outdoor sporting events do not require vaccination status be verified to attend a game.

“Oh man, I’m excited to have them,” Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett told reporters last week. “You never know what it’s like to not have something until you don’t have it. And when we didn’t have the fans, you could tell it was different.
