Here's Which NFL Teams Will Allow Fans in Their Stadiums

By

Updated

Football is obviously looking quite different this year. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, stadiums full of cheering fans are basically no more. At best, teams and cities are allowing a small capacity to attend. What will NFL games look like this year? Well, it depends on the team and location. Some are allowing fans to attend the live games, and some aren't. Here's a breakdown, per ESPN.

1. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins are letting 13,000 fans into the stadium for their September 20 home opener game against Buffalo. 13,000 is 20 percent capacity, which hopefully allows for more space between people. Fans attending the game are required to wear masks, a touchless food ordering system will be implemented, and smoking and tailgating has been banned.
