While some teams have said they will not be welcoming fans back into stands for the upcoming season as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep across the country, some teams are trying to get some people to watch the games in person from the seats.
That’s where pods come in.
Jones said the team will abide by the protocols set by the NFL, but will adapt them.
He also is putting liability on the fans.
“The people that will be there will be there of their own volition,” Jones said, according to CBS Sports. “Our fans will be in the stadium because they’ve chosen to be there.”
Normally AT&T Stadium holds more than 100,000 fans, but Jones won’t say exactly how many people will be allowed to attend in person this season, CBS Sports reported.
The Cowboys are not the only team considering the pod format.
Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots are also apparently looking at similar plans.
Teams have been adding clauses to the ticket agreement terms that are in play when a person buys a ticket.
The Atlanta Falcons’ ticketback terms state that the attendee holds all liability.

A handful of teams have already determined that the risk is too high to hold games in front of fans.
