What a glorious day in the City of Philadelphia!
The Phillies have announced that they will sell 8,800 tickets for the first 19 home games of the 2021 season at Citizens Bank Park! This is an upgrade from last season where the Phillies had cardboard cutouts in the stands due to the coronavirus pandemic. (See mine from 2020 below!)
The limited return of fans also includes the addition of extensive health and safety protocols for all Phillies home games, with operational specifics to be announced prior to Opening Day. Among the protocols:
With capacity limits for outdoor events currently capped at 20%, 8,800 fans will be permitted at each Phillies home game.
To allow for socially distant seating, fans will be seated in pods of two, three or four people, with limited pods available for five to six people.
All attendees age two years and older must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times on ballpark property, other than when actively eating or drinking at their ticketed seats.
All areas of the ballpark accessed by fans will be cleaned and disinfected before, during and after each game by a newly created “Clean Team” utilizing processes and products approved by the CDC and EPA specifically for use against COVID-19. Hand sanitizing stations will also be widely available.
