  • The NFL is currently planning on full stadiums; other leagues move forward with comeback plans.

The NFL expects stadiums to be full this fall. NFL Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said that’s the league’s position of the moment, and will change if and when the medical community says otherwise. Vincent also said the league has prepared plans for half and three-quarters stadium capacity. The NFL stands to lose $5.5 billion if there are no fans in person this season.

College football is less unified. University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel said there’d be no intercollegiate athletics without students on campus. Michigan’s approach is different from fellow Big Ten schools Ohio State and the University of Illinois, whose teams are expected back on campus in early June.
