South Florida radio host Andy Slater reports that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has given clearance for Hard Rock Stadium to “go to full capacity of 65,000.”
“DeSantis’ spokesperson follows up with [Slater] 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 added, which appears to clear the way for full attendance in Jacksonville and Tampa Bay.
The Dolphins, according to Slater, say their plan is to stick to a 13,000 attendance capacity for their next home game against the Chargers on October 25.
Hard Rock averages 11,722 through two home games for the Dolphins. The Dallas Cowboys lead the NFL in attendance with an average of 23,364 through two games.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced this week that attendance caps will raise to 12,000 at Bengals and Browns games. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, Governor Tom Wolf announced that 7,500 fans will be allowed to attend the Eagles-Steelers game in Pittsburgh this week.
Super Bowl LV is scheduled to be played February 7 in Tampa.

Well at least the government restrictions have been lifted. Too bad it sounds like the owners are more worried about optics than science.
That’s my governor *TO Voice*
I’ve been really impressed with him throughout this ordeal.
Yep. He’s got my vote again when he’s up for re-election.
LMAO good one, T
Ron DeSantis 2024. He’s so awesome.
Best Governor in the country! Fight the fear!
To bad I live in Louisiana where Latoya Destroya and Gov Edwards will have us tied down for years.
The liberal will cry, scream and kick their feet.
Wish he was my Governor!
Suck it Corona bro’s!
You beat me to it, Joel!
The Gov of PA: doofus! Actually, that is unfair to real doofuses.
Laughed out loud !!!
Attention Governor Abbott. Governor Abbott, Attention. Drop the stupidity. Open the State of Texas.
Desantis is a Rock Star 💫 in waiting.
Florida is hot humid and kooool ☔️
Meanwhile on the lEFT cOAST,
“Wear a mask, Al & Chris!”
Great timing too, as Trump DESTROYS covid & Cam is a asymptomatic, probably playing this Sunday…
I like Desantis but lets keep it real he did shut things down the only guv that did not is Kristi Noam of South Dakota she is the one who honored our Bill of Rights and Constitution. I’m glad that the stadium can be at capacity but it should have been that way all along in other words let the citizens decide if they want to attend not some bureaucrat .
I give state governors a pass on shutting down for the first 2 weeks of the covid scare, as it was a state of emergency declared by Trump. There was so much info and disinfo to sort through, that governors should be given some time to assess the scene. But, after the 2 weeks, where’s my rights?
I’d put JBE, Governor of LA, against most libs as worst in the country. He’s really enjoying the control and lockdowns.
Desantis taking the lead! Love it. Open these stadiums up! If people are scared or worried, guess what? THEY’LL STAY HOME. Amazing how rational thought comes in handy when dealing with irrational lunatics.
