Buffalo Bills Will Return to Full Capacity for 2021 Season; Steelers Opener



Highmark Stadium will return to full capacity for the 2021 season.

No, not that Highmark Stadium, but the home of the Buffalo Bills, where the Pittsburgh Steelers will open the regular season on Sept. 12.

The club broke the news Monday after Erie County, which owns the stadium, announced that both vaccinated and unvaccinated fans will be permitted to attend games this fall. Masks will still be required for unvaccinated individuals in accordance with CDC guidelines.

This will be the first game the Steelers have played in front of a capacity crowd since their season ending loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 29, 2019.

Pittsburgh’s most attended game last season was their defeat of the Cowboys in Dallas.

The return of Bills Mafia adds another dynamic to an already challenging season opener for the Steelers. They are looking to snap a two-game skid against Buffalo.
