TAMPA, Fla. — Tuesday marked 100 days until the NFL's regular season begins on Sept. 9.

Kickoff will be at 7:20 p.m. ET as the Dallas Cowboys face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

Bucs quarterback Tom Brady revealed Tuesday that Ray Jay will be open at 100 percent capacity.

"100 days out. 100 percent effort. 100 percent capacity!" he tweeted.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had previously said the league expected to fill stadiums for the fall of 2021, a major difference from a year earlier when some teams went without fans in the stands for the entire season.

A total of 22,000 people were allowed at Ray Jay for Super Bowl LV in February.

As 10 Tampa Bay previously reported, USF Football recently announced the Bulls also plan to welcome back fans at full capacity during 2021 home games played at Raymond James Stadium. 

In a release, USF said fans will be able to fill the 65,857-seat stadium for its six home games. And, single-game tickets will go on sale on July 7.
