More than 50,000 people could attend Texas A&M home football games this fall after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Phase 3 reopening orders that include 50% capacity for outside sporting venues.
Under the guidelines released by Abbott on Wednesday, A&M would have to get the county judge or mayor to approve a gathering of more than 500 along with consulting local public health officials.
A&M is scheduled to open the season Sept. 5 against Abilene Christian at Kyle Field. The stadium capacity is 102,733.
