More fans will now be allowed in the stands for Saturday’s six high school football state title games being played across Virginia.

Rather than being held back by the current cap of 500 people, now, 1,000 fans will be able to attend these games, the VHSL announced on Thursday.

Gov. Ralph Northam revised Executive Order 72 to allow up to 1,000 spectators for outdoor recreational sports, effective immediately. This change advances by two weeks a change that was scheduled to go into effect on May 15.

Each school involved in each game will be given 500 tickets to sell and any tickets not used by the school will go on sale to the general public at noon on through the GoFan ticket portal.

Here’s a look a the schedule for Saturday’s games:
