T-Mobile Park to increase capacity on June 14

Most seats to be non-socially distanced; pod seating of 1-6 fans available Some COVID-19 operational restrictions will be lifted

June 1st, 2021

The Seattle Mariners have received permission from the state of Washington and King County to increase seating capacity at T-Mobile Park for the upcoming homestand June 14-23.

The updated operations plan allows 26,265 tickets to be sold as vaccine only with no social distancing. The remaining capacity will be sold in socially distanced pods of 1-6 seats for a total of 4,680 seats. Total ballpark capacity under the approved plan is 30,945 (out of 47,000). Private Suites, Diamond Club and All-Star Club are available at full capacity for fully vaccinated guests.

Prior to June 14, the Mariners have been operating T-Mobile Park under reduced capacity with socially distanced seating (9,000) and vaccine only sections (up to approximately 5,000). The Mariners plan to open to full, non-socially distanced capacity when all COVID-19 restrictions in the state of Washington are lifted. More information will be available soon about ticket availability for games beginning July 2.

Mariners Season Ticket Members have priority to select locations for the upcoming homestand. Once that is completed, tickets will be available for single-game buyers starting on June 8 at Mariners.com/Tickets.

With the update of capacity restrictions, fans will see changes in some other areas of ballpark operations.
