Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced Wednesday during the Dak Prescott press conference that the club will have 100% capacity at the team’s upcoming games.

“We’re going to have that stadium full, and we’re going to do it safely,” Jones said.

The decision comes hours after the Texas Rangers, who play down the street at Globe Life Field in Arlington, will allow max capacity at Globe Life Field, which can hold around 80,000 people.

The NFL season kicks off on Sept. 9, which is a Thursday night. The Cowboys led capacity with an average of 28,187 fans at each home game in 2020. Still, that isn’t even half of the capacity of their stadium.

Last weekend, Texas governor Greg Abbott altogether lifted the public mask mandate for the state. It is not yet known if the Cowboys will require fans to wear a mask at the game.
