INDIANAPOLIS–You will not have to wear a mask to attend a Colts game this season, but it is highly recommended. You will also not be required to present proof of vaccination to get inside the stadium. The Colts released a list of guidelines for attending games Thursday morning.

  • Full Capacity. After consulting with the Marion County (Ind.) Public Health Department, the Colts and Lucas Oil Stadium were cleared to return to full capacity for the 2021 season.
  • Masks. Consistent with local, NFL and CDC guidelines, masks or face coverings in the stadium are recommended, but not required.
  • Show Up 100%. Fans who have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, have been exposed to someone who has tested positive within the last 14 days, or have experienced COVID-19 symptoms within the last 48 hours, should stay home.
  • Security Screenings. Security screenings at stadium entrances will be conducted in a manner that minimizes person-to-person contact.
  • Stadium Roof/Window. The stadium is equipped with hospital-grade air filters and provides 24/7 air circulation. The total air supply and outdoor air ventilation are set for each event based on the specific event requirements and outdoor weather conditions. As such, the stadium roof and window will be open when weather and other operational conditions permit. Fans should stay tuned to Colts social media the morning of each game to find out if the roof will be open or closed.
  • Stadium Disinfection & Cleaning. Stadium staff will routinely disinfect all surfaces, including door handles, push plates, restroom fixtures and partitions, tables and furniture, trash cans, and other areas on a 24/7 basis.
  • Hand Sanitizer Stations. Fans and staff will have access to hand sanitizer stations throughout the stadium. Fans and staff are encouraged to sanitize and wash their hands frequently on gamedays.
  • Staff Training & Protocols. Front-line stadium staff and vendors working game days will complete enhanced training on CDC guidelines, PPE and other COVID-19 practices and protocols and will abide by all stadium health and safety policies.
  • Player/coach interactions. Due to NFL COVID-19 protocols, fans will not be permitted to interact with players or coaches at any time.
  • On-field activity. Per NFL health and safety protocols, fans who participate in on-field festivities must be fully vaccinated and have proof of vaccination.

“We were one of the few teams in the league to host fans last year, but it wasn’t the same without the entire Colts family with us,” said Pete Ward, Colts chief operating officer. “That’s why we’re so excited to welcome back Colts fans this fall as we go on this journey toward a Super Bowl championship.”

You can expect 100 percent mobile ticketing, cashless transactions and a remodeled pro shop. Concessions will return to normal operation and tailgating will again be allowed on stadium property.
