Dolphins to Have 13K Fan Capacity at Home Opener


Monday morning, the Miami Dolphins announced that there will be fans for the home opener in week 2 against the Buffalo Bills. The 13k capacity is roughly 20% of the stadium's normal 65,000+ capacity. Fans will seated with social distancing in mind. They will also be required to wear masks for the entirety of the game as long as they are not actively eating or drinking.

To reduce crowding, Hard Rock Stadium will have more entrances and exits. The stadium will also go cashless at concession stands, parking, and retail. The bathrooms will also feature contactless faucets and toilets. There will be no tailgating at Dolphins home games and parking lots will open two hours before kickoff rather than four.

Season ticket holders will have first priority when buying single-game tickets.

The Miami Hurricanes, who share the stadium with the Dolphins, have their season opener on September 10th against UAB (Dolphins home opener on September 20th). While no statement as been made yet regarding fans at Canes games, AD Blake James said the program will mirror what the Dolphins are doing.
