Maryland will allow up to 10% capacity at the two stadiums in the state that are home to NFL teams, Gov. Larry Hogan said Friday, meaning several thousand fans could attend games.
M&T Bank Stadium has a total capacity of 71,008 and FedEx Field has a capacity of 82,000.
Face coverings and physical distancing will be required. Social gatherings such as tailgating will be prohibited.
The stadiums have been limited to 250 spectators at recent games. Those seats have been set aside mostly for players' relatives.
The Republican governor wrote on Twitter he is taking the steps as Maryland's key health metrics for the coronavirus remain "low and stable.''
