Seahawks players excited to welcome ‘best fans in the world’ back to Lumen Field in 2021


There is nothing quite like a Seahawks game at Lumen Field in front of the roaring 12s.

After an entire 2020 season without fans in the stands cheering on their beloved Seahawks, the organization announced Tuesday that it will welcome back fans to Lumen Field in full capacity this upcoming season.

That means the deafening 12th man will be back in full force, and we know exactly what a noisy Seahawks crowd can be like. Remember the epic “Beast Quake?”

“We can’t wait to play for you (the fans),” Seahawks’ coach Pete Carroll said in a video posted to the team’s Twitter account on Tuesday.

Coach Carroll wasn’t the only one celebrating the news. Many players including Russell Wilson, Quandre Diggs and Bobby Wagner shared their excitement to have the 12s back.


While the Seahawks played the whole 2020 season without the 12s, Seattle still did pretty well without them in attendance. The Seahawks went 7-1 at home, won the NFC West, but fell to the Rams in the Wild Card Round.

The Seahawks will not require fans to provide proof of having received a COVID-19 vaccination to attend games but vaccinated fans will not be required to wear masks during the game.

As of mandatory minicamp, Carroll shared that roughly 70% of the team’s players and staff would be vaccinated by the end of the week. He hopes for a fully vaccinated roster by July, ahead of the start of Seahawks training camp.
