The Seattle Mariners have received approval from the State of Washington and King County to begin allowing fans at home games again.
For the first time since 2019, Mariners fans will be allowed to attend games at T-Mobile Field, beginning April 1 on Opening Night. Up to 9,000 fans will be allowed to attend, which is less than 20% capacity, the Mariners announced today.
“The health and safety of our fans, employees and players is the Seattle Mariners top priority,” the team says on its website. “We are committed to all necessary actions to ensure that T-Mobile Park meets or exceeds all industry best practices in response to COVID-19.”
Tickets will be available in small, socially distanced pods of one to six fans, the team said. Pods must be members of the same household.
Only the first 11 games of the season will be put up for sale initially, with season ticket members getting first priority. Single-game tickets will go on sale March 25.
“When will tickets go on sale?!” We’ve got you covered. 😉

A number of health and safety protocols have been put in place, including enhanced cleaning, physical distancing, and reduced contact. Fans must wear masks except when eating or drinking at assigned seats.
