Dolphins limiting capacity to 13,000 for home opener vs. Bills

The Miami Dolphins have joined the list of teams limiting capacity to their home openers.

The team announced Monday that Hard Rock Stadium will host a maximum of 13,000 fans. All spectators will be required to wear a mask. Other social distancing and safety-related protocols will also be put in place, including a no tailgating policy.

The Dolphins kick off their home slate in Week 2, on Sept. 20 versus the Buffalo Bills.

"When we started the process back in March of exploring what a socially-distanced stadium could look like, we made the health and safety of everyone the first priority; knowing that if we felt that we couldn't make it safe, we simply wouldn't have fans," said Miami Dolphins Vice Chairman and CEO Tom Garfinkel said in a statement. "We're happy that our elected officials recognize the attention to detail and diligence that we've put into creating a safe environment and that they made the decision to move forward with a 13,000-capacity stadium at this time."

Dolphins season-ticket holders will have first priority to purchase tickets based on tenure. Season-ticket members will also have the option to roll their 2020 payments to 2021.
