Texas Is The First State To Allow Limited Fans at Sporting Events

There is no word currently if that 25% cap on audiences will be expanded before the NFL season begins in September. 

Sports is back in the Texas of states…outdoor sports…at 25% capacity.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced in a proclamation on Thursday that outdoor professional sporting events in the state will be allowed to host fans at up to 25% of the venue’s capacity beginning Friday, according to Texas Tribune. This would mean that the Dallas Cowboys would only be allowed 20,000 fans in their stadium and the Houston Texans would be allowed less than 18,000. Both venues must also run games with the roofs open.

Leagues must obtain approval from the Texas Department of State Health Services before opening their doors to spectators. Teams impacted by the proclamation include the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, FC Dallas, Houston Dynamo, and Houston Dash.

Fans will continue to be barred from attending indoor sporting events. Abbott announced professional basketball, baseball, car racing, football, golf, softball, and tennis would have the green light to resume in Texas without fans beginning May 31.

Abbott has also been optimistic that the college football season will start as scheduled with at least some fans in attendance, though Thursday’s proclamation doesn’t affect amateur sports. There is no word currently if that 25% cap on audiences will be expanded before the NFL season begins in September.
