The Cardinals are pleased to welcome fans back to Busch Stadium for the 2021 season. In cooperation with the City of St. Louis and Major League Baseball, we've updated our health and safety protocols to help ensure all fans have a safe and enjoyable return to the ballpark.
Masks worn over the nose and mouth will be required at all times in all areas of the stadium, including the seating bowl, unless guests are actively eating and drinking. Only standard masks will be allowed; neck gaiters, bandanas, masks with valves or holes, and facial shields without mask will not be permitted.
To reduce contamination and ensure touchless entry, bags will not be permitted to be brought in to Busch Stadium, except for medical bags, diaper bags with a child or clutches/wristlets not exceeding 6" x 8". Prohibition includes any backpack, grocery bag, purse or other bags larger than 6" x 8". All exceptions must enter via the designated Inspection Lane at each gate.
All tickets will be delivered via the MLB Ballpark app, ensuring a touchless entry into the ballpark.
Guests will be directed to enter and exit the stadium through one of six designated entry gates to expedite the process and limit crowding at any one entrance. A designated entry gate will be noted on each ticket. Guests will not be permitted to exit and re-enter the stadium.
Concession stands, kiosks and other retail transactions made in the stadium will be cashless and only offer credit and debit payment options. Debit cards will be available for purchase* using cash with no service fees at a limited number of locations inside the stadium.
*Debit cards available for purchase at Schnucks Grab-N-Go Markets at Sections 153, 108 and 451
All full-time employees and event staff will be subject to health and temperature screenings before entering the stadium.
Hand sanitizer dispensers will be widely available throughout the ballpark.
