Pass It On: Forbes Article on MLB Attendance

Posted by Bronte Eaker on Thu, Mar 11, 2021 @ 02:38 PM

Forbes released an article with some information about MLB attendance plans. You can read the full article here. Be sure to take a look at the table with the breakdown of each team's current plans for attendance. Here are some of the highlights:

"We know Major League Baseball will play a full 162-game regular season, but will fans be allowed to attend games during the pandemic? As the number of vaccinations rises and Covid-19 case numbers drop, the vast majority of the 30 clubs in Major League Baseball will see some level of fan attendance on opening day in 2021."

"So as the league heads into the 2021 season, as of publication, 25 clubs are set to have fan attendance in one form or another, ranging from a low of 3% of capacity (Detroit Tigers) to a high of 100% (Texas Rangers). Some clubs have been given conditional green lights to allow fans to attend but have not received final capped attendance criteria. For example, Governor Gavin Newsom of California has said that outdoor sporting events will be allowed to have fans but that the final figures will be forthcoming. That uncertainty affects the Angels, the A’s, the Dodgers, the Giants and the Padres, all of whom are hoping to attain at least 20% of capacity."

We can all acknowledge this is all a moving target and plans will continue to change, but we're excited to see fans being included. We're also glad to have pushed the tours later in the summer. We fully expect that many teams will continue to ease restrictions as the season progresses and COVID cases continue to drop. We're looking forward to being in the stands with you all soon!
