“Governing agencies remain consistent in their position that fans in the stands, even socially distanced and with a wide-array of protocols in place, present a concerning risk for COVID transmission,” said Gladchuk. “There are still three opportunities (Houston 10/24, Tulsa 11/7 and Memphis 11/14) where improving conditions may dictate justification to open our gates in a setting with extensive safety protocols.”
