Local officials have given clearance for some events to be held with people in attendance and that includes Allegiant Stadium, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Events can be held at 10% capacity, which means the 65,000-seat stadium can have events with 6,500 fans inside. Still, the newspaper pointed out the Raiders will likely not allow any fans until it can have full capacity at Allegiant Stadium,.

Raiders’ owner Mark Davis has been adamant about having all of his team’s fans or none at home games. Davis himself didn’t attend the Week 2 Las Vegas opener, a win over New Orleans, and he doesn’t plan to attend any home games until the stadium can be filled. Davis does go to Raiders’ road games this season, however, and was spotted in Gillette Stadium during the loss to the Patriots.

There may still be football fans at Allegiant Stadium this fall. The newspaper reported UNLV is working on a plan for fans to attend games when their season starts next month.
