BBVA Stadium, along with Houston soccer teams Dynamo and Dash, announced Wednesday that they are re-opening their doors for fans to attend upcoming games.
The announcement comes after Mayor Sylvester Turner made the decision yesterday to start re-opening venues for live events again.

The plan to reopen was approved by city of Houston officials, along with both Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League.
The stadium will be open with a limited capacity of 3,000 fans, which serves as 13.6% of the BBVA’s capacity. The stadium’s official capacity is listed at over 22,000.
New safety protocol will include temperature screens as well as a list of questions fans must answer before entering the stadium. Tickets will be sold online to limit in-person contact with employees and masks are required at all times except for eating and drinking.
The stadium also will have ambassadors walking throughout the stadium to remind fans to keep their masks on and maintain social distance.
While Major League Soccer has yet to release Phase 2 for playing, the Dash are making their return to the stadium on September 26 against the Orlando Pride.
