So how many fans will be allowed in AT&T Stadium for the Dallas Cowboys’ home opener Sunday?

Good question.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones says the team won’t know until game day with pandemic guidelines in place that will require fans to remain in specific areas of the stadium and wear face coverings when they’re moving around.

Single-game tickets went on sale at noon Monday. The Cowboys (0-1) host the Atlanta Falcons (0-1) at noon Sunday.

“We’re going to have some fun attendance and we’re going to have, hopefully, we’re going to have a great game,” Jones said on KRLD/105.3 FM “The Fan” Tuesday morning. “I’m excited about Sunday. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

NFL teams in Week 1 either limited fan attendance to less than 50% capacity or played without fans entirely. Capacity at sports venues in Texas is limited to 50% according to Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide order.

“We’ll just continue to play that by ear and see how that goes,” Jones said about Sunday’s capacity in Arlington. “We don’t necessarily have to do that, and we’ll announce what the attendance is at the game.”
