Phoenix Rising FC announced on Friday that the club will be allowing fans at its next home match.

PRFC will be permitting fewer than 1,000 season-ticket members at home games starting with Sept. 11’s contest against Las Vegas Lights FC.

“The health and safety of our players, staff, fans and community remain our top priority,” Phoenix Rising GM Bobby Dulle said in a press release.

“We have consulted with state and local officials as well as health specialists throughout this process. We feel we can now safely allow a limited number of season ticket members to attend matches by implementing several key safety protocols.”

All tickets will be digital and bags will not be permitted inside Casino Arizona Field.

Fans will enter the stadium at separate gates corresponding to their seat location and must wear a facial covering at all times.

The safety certification comes from HealthyVerify, a private company that specializes in disease-reducing procedures and has guided the club with the aforementioned protocols.

Season-ticket members will receive direct communication from Phoenix Rising, with seating availability selection being based on priority number.

PRFC has six games remaining on the docket for the 2020 USL Championship campaign.

Of those, four of the last five will be hosted at Casino Arizona Field starting with Sept. 11’s home matchup with Las Vegas.
