Governor Ron DeSantis has given the Hard Rock Stadium clearance to “go to full capacity of 65,000,” according to Florida radio host Andy Slater. The move comes as the state moves into Phase 3 of its reopening guidelines.
“DeSantis’ spokesperson follows up with me wanting to make it clear that after the governor recently dropped COVID-19 restrictions, all Florida stadiums were able to go to full capacity,” Slater said, which could mean full attendance in Jacksonville and Tampa Bay, as well.
However, despite the clearance, the Dolphins plan to stick with their 13,000 attendance capacity for the next home game against the Chargers on October 25.
The Miami team averaged about 11,722 capacity during their home games at the Hard Rock. At the same time, The Dallas Cowboys lead attendance with an average of 23,364 attendees through two games amid the coronavirus pandemic.
There is no word on changes in policy for Florida Universities at this time.
