The Texans are bidding to have fans for their October 4 game against the Vikings. Team president Jamey Rootes said the franchise has already received approval from both the city of Houston and Harris County on several aspects, but said both were also reviewing certain other aspects to help assure a safe environment.
A handful of NFL teams had limited attendance in Week 1 of the 2020 regular season; should the Texans receive approval, the number of fans would be limited to the 15,000-17,000 range along with numerous sanitizing stations and safety precautions when it comes to concessions.
This has got to go well for our community to feel comfortable that we can get back to some sense of normalcy,” said Rootes. “We do feel an incredible responsibility to get it right.”
