Last spring, when we normally would have been welcoming our fans back to Nationals Park for a new season of baseball, our stadium instead stood empty and quiet. We all dreamed of the day that fans would once again be able to come back to the ballpark.
This dream came true on April 6, when we were able to welcome 5,000 fans back to Nationals Park for Opening Day. After continued discussion and planning with the Government of the District of Columbia, health experts and Major League Baseball, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding the seating capacity at Nationals Park to 36%, beginning with our May 21 game. We will continue to seat guests in socially distanced pods, with the minimum distance between pods shifting to 3.5 feet. We will retain the wide array of health & safety protocols that have been in place since the start of the season, including measures to prevent crowding at gates and concession stands.
Fans are encouraged to visit nationals.com/fanclub to join the Nationals Fan Club to find out when single-game tickets become available for each homestand. There may also be limited availability for socially distanced group outings – please contact [email protected] for more information. We thank you for your patience and understanding in following these guidelines during this unprecedented time. Welcome home, fans.
