Colts lower capacity to 10,000 fans vs. Texans

The Indianapolis Colts are allowing 10,000 fans to attend Sunday’s home game against the Houston Texans.

The number is a reduction from the 12,500 the team has permitted over its previous four home games. The lower number comes after a spike in COVID-19 cases throughout the state of Indiana, with Indianapolis hit especially hard.

“From the beginning of the pandemic, our top priority has always been to protect the health and safety of our fans, players and staff,” Colts chief operating officer Pete Ward said in a statement on Monday. “We have taken extraordinary steps to keep people safe in the stadium this year, and along with our partners at the health department, we believe this is right thing to do to help limit the spread of the virus in the greater community.”

The Colts hosted 2,500 fans in their 28-11 victory over Minnesota on Sept. 20 and 7,500 a week later in a 36-7 romp over the New York Jets. Lucas Oil Stadium has a seating capacity of 67,000 for football games.

The team has not announced a planned capacity for its final regular-season home game against Jacksonville on Jan. 3.
