INDIANAPOLIS — Up to 7,500 fans will be allowed at Lucas Oil Stadium for the Indianapolis Colts game against the New York Jets on Sept. 27, Colts owner Jim Irsay says.

The Marion County Department of Public Health approved the capacity, Irsay tweeted Thursday afternoon.

Only 2,500 fans will be allowed to attend Sunday's home opener.

Several health and safety changes at Colts games were announced earlier this month.

All fans and employees will have to participate in a COVID-19 screening, including a questionnaire and temperature check before they are allowed into the stadium. People are required to wear masks except when they are eating or drinking.
