Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters on Wednesday that the team intends to play all their home games with fans in attendance, citing AT&T Stadium’s “naturally-built airflow” that can keep fans safe.
Yes, Jones bucked the trend by announcing the season will go on because his stadium has great airflow:
“I’m really proud that we have that stadium to work with.”
“The Dallas Cowboys plan on playing all of our football games, and we plan on playing them in front of our fans.”
The Cowboys’ first home game is Sept. 20 vs. the Atlanta Falcons, but it’s still unclear on how the season will unfold because of the coronavirus.
“We’ll adhere to all protocols. We’ll adapt them to the uniqueness of our stadium. I think we’re going to be able to have a great experience.”
Jones spoke at the beginning of the video below about the season:
