Arlington, Texas - AT&T Stadium is expected to have close to normal attendance this upcoming NFL season, as the health guidelines imposed will not be as strict as last year’s rules.
AT&T Stadium’s “Safe Stadium Policy” for last season included guidelines such as capacity limits, enforced social distancing, mobile-only ticketing, and cashless transactions. The Cowboys averaged about 28,000 fans per game last season, less than a third of capacity.
For this season, games are expected to be sold out and health & safety guidelines will be slightly relaxed. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team will abide by state protocols, meaning masks are recommended but not mandatory. The Cowboys have also put a statement saying no proof-of-vaccination will be required.
Saturday’s preseason game against the Texans marks the first Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium since December 27, 2020. Kick off starts at 7 PM.
