New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday that MetLife Stadium can welcome fans back at 15 percent capacity starting March 1.

The East Rutherford, N.J., home of the NFL’s New York Giants and Jets holds 82,500 fans, meaning about 12,375 spectators would be allowed to attend.

The Giants and Jets played their 2020 home games without fans due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“As the months go on, we are hopeful that the data will continue to be positive and the number of people allowed into MetLife Stadium will steadily increase,” read a joint statement issued by the Jets and Giants. “The health and safety of our fans, players, staff, and those in our communities remain our top priority and we will continue to follow the guidance of Governor Murphy and state health officials.”

The Giants finished 6-10 and the Jets were 2-14 during the 2020 campaign.
