On Wednesday, the Packers announced due to Covid-19 no fans will be able to attend training camp, Packers family night and home preseason games.

"Really big disappointment. It's okay to watch it on TV but half of the experience is sitting with other people, getting a beer or hot dog and when you take that out its not the same," Packers fan, Pat Colledge said.

The news of not having any fans at any of the preseason activities comes after the Packers said there would be reduced capacity at regular season games as well. Still, Packers fans are planning to cheer on the Pack from their couches.

"Stadiums are so large that I think they can spread it out a little bit. I had heard limiting off closer to the sidelines and then every other row. I think they can squeeze some. I wouldn't want to do it and take that risk but I think they could possibly work something around it," Packers fan, Owen VanDenElzen said.

Fans or no fans, they're just hoping they'll be able to root for their favorite team at all this season.
