There will be no cheerleaders on the field at NFL games in 2020


The latest protocols approved by the NFL and the NFL Players Association will not allow cheerleaders or mascots on the field during games this season.

The protocols are trying to limit the number of people on the field as the league tries to forge ahead during the pandemic. TV and radio sideline reporters and pregame TV reporters also won’t be given field access.

The NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero first reported the news.

The Texans already picked their cheerleaders, who you can see here, virtually for the season.

The NFL season opens with the Texans playing at Kansas City on Sept. 10. The Chiefs recently announced they will allow 15,000 fans into their 76,000 stadium for the game.

The Texans will not have fans at their first home game on Sept. 20 against the Ravens, but haven’t made an announcement yet about the rest of the season.
