Texas will allow limited fans to attend professional sporting events that are held outdoors beginning next month, the Associated Press reports.

Governor Greg Abbott revised his decision to allow pro sports to hold events without fans starting in June. The new order, though, allows only 25 percent capacity, severely limiting crowd size.

Leagues are required to apply to state health health officials to resume play with fans.

Indoor events remain closed to spectators.

The PGA Tour will restart its season in Fort Worth on June 11-14 without fans. Texas Motor Speedway is scheduled to host an IndyCar Series race in Fort Worth on June 6 without fans.

The state’s guidelines encourage athletes to wear masks on the sidelines. It recommends fans practice social distancing and encourages face coverings and sanitation protocols.

The order does not address college sports.

  1. How are they going to determine which fans can attend and which ones can’t, any way they choose to do it if they adhere to the 6′ rule it’s going to piss of a lot more fans than it’ll make happy! It should be all of none.

    I don’t think these people give these ideas one iota of thought, they just come up with an idea and run with it!
