Ohio Governor Mike DeWine released guidance today that will allow up to 6,000 fans to attend two home games at Bengals and Browns games. The state is granting a “variance to the state sports order” that will allow fans to be spread out in a strategic way to satisfy the state.
“The variances allow no more than 1,500 spectators in each side of the stadium,” DeWine said in a statement. “Fans must use the designated entrance for their ticket. In addition, all fans must wear a mask in accordance with state regulations.”
The two games in Cleveland where fans will be allowed inside First Energy Stadium include:
September 17: Bengals at Browns
September 27: Washington Football Team at Browns
The two games in Cincinnati are:
October 4: Jacksonville at Bengals
October 25: Browns at Bengals
The state says this 6,000 fan limit is a two-game trial.
