The Washington Football Team has officially announced that they will be letting fans back into the stadium. They will allow a select number of gold members attend the game at FedExField, vs. the New York Giants on November 8. Team President Jason Wright said this about fans attending games, earlier this week,

“We have the bye week coming up after this. It gives us plenty of time to be prepared to do something substantial in the coming week. We have a plan to bring back fans,” Wright said. “If you want to pencil something on the calendar, I would look at the Giants week. That gives us the right time to prepare.”

Jason Wright and the team ultimately finalized their plan, and announced it today.

Jason Wright’s decision comes after Maryland Governor Larry Hogan gave the clear to both the Washington Football Team and the Baltimore Ravens to allow a limited number of fans to attend games.

Additionally, when asked by Scott Abraham at ABC -7 about why they were not going to allow fans to attend games this week, despite the green light to do soon. Jason Wright felt it was too soon, and that they needed time to establish a safe plan to allow fans back in the stadium.

“It’s too quick of a turn around for us to feel like we can do it safely,” Wright said. “This week, we will continue to expand the family, friends and staff approach this week for the Cowboys game. Especially something like this, I like to move fast, but I don’t like to rush. We want to make sure we are prepared to do it right.”
