Scottsdale spring training safety plan limits attendance

The city of Scottsdale has approved the COVID-19 safety plan for San Francisco Giants spring training baseball at Scottsdale Stadium. The plan limits ticket sales to less than 10 percent of stadium capacity and includes a host of other COVID-19 safety precautions.

All seats will be sold in pods of 2 to 6 tickets, all pods will be positioned a minimum of six feet apart. Suites will not be used for the 2021 season. A maximum of 1,000 stadium seats and 170 tickets to the Charro Lodge will be sold per game. The stadium normally seats 11,730 fans, and the lodge usually seats 661.

Prior to entering the stadium, all staff, vendors, media and fans 13 and older will be required to complete an app-based health screening.

All attendees ages two and older and will be required to wear a face covering which covers their nose and mouth at all times other than when actively eating or drinking in their ticketed seat (half-face shields will not be permitted). Stadium staff will be required to wear face coverings at all times.

Additional buffers will be set between ticketed seats and player areas.

The first game of the 2021 spring season at Scottsdale Stadium is Sunday, Feb. 28.
