NFL Considering Use Of Virtual Fans In Stadiums 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Aug 7, 2020 1:19 am

The NFL is considering the use of virtual fans in stadiums for the 2020 season. 

The NFL used the practice during the virtual draft, while the NBA has found success with a similar model in its restart.

Some teams still are hoping for 33% to 40% capacity in their stadiums to start the season, but that\'s still widely considered unlikely.

Enhanced virtual advertising also is an option to fill vacant seats.
