JetBlue Park to allow limited fans for ST

February 2nd, 2021

The Red Sox will allow fans to return in a limited capacity for their 2021 Spring Training games in Fort Myers, Fla., operating JetBlue Park at approximately 24 percent of its normal capacity, the team announced on Tuesday.

Appropriate physical distancing and safety protocols will be in place to permit approximately 2,400 fans to attend each of the club’s 17 Grapefruit League contests. JetBlue Park’s regular seating capacity is 9,909.

Red Sox Spring Training is scheduled to begin on Feb. 17, with the first exhibition game taking place on Feb. 27 against the Pirates.

All tickets will be sold in physically distanced "pods" comprised primarily of two to four seats that will allow for at least six feet between groups. Season ticket holders will be offered the first opportunity to attend exhibition games. Additional tickets may go on sale to the general public depending on availability.

The Red Sox’s equipment truck is scheduled to depart from Fenway Park on Monday and is anticipated to arrive at JetBlue Park on Feb. 11. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, fans are discouraged from gathering at Fenway Park for the departure of the equipment truck, or at JetBlue Park for its arrival.

Boston’s first workout for pitchers and catchers is scheduled for Feb. 17, with the first full-squad workout on Feb. 22. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workouts will be closed to the public and there will be no tours or open house held this Spring Training.
