The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Friday that they will allow fans at TIAA Bank Field for the 2020 season at a maximum of 25% capacity.

"The health and safety of the entire Jaguars family, including our fans, remains our highest priority," the team said in a statement. "Alongside our stadium partners and national and local healthcare experts, we have and will continue to work diligently to develop new protocols to ensure our team can return to the field with a clear focus on winning and our fans can return to the stadium with peace of mind.

"It was our sincere hope to welcome a capacity crowd to TIAA Bank Field this fall and celebrate together with the First Coast community. However, with the health and well-being of everyone in mind, the Jaguars anticipate reducing capacity this season ... Once the season begins, any future increase in capacity will depend on developments on the health and safety front."

Jacksonville is the latest club to disclose plans to host fans for home games amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and Green Bay Packers were among the others to announce limited capacity for 2020, though not every franchise set a specific number or percentage limit.

Jaguars fans will be required to wear a mask in the venue, while alterations to the stadium will be completed to improve sanitation.

The NFL said in June it won't dictate attendance limits for the upcoming season and told teams to instead follow their local health guidelines on social distancing.
