Dodgers Announce Policies For Attendance at Dodger Stadium



The Los Angeles Dodgers will be able to host fans at games in 2021. That’s the good news that we’ve all been waiting for over a year on. But with the allowance of fans at games, there will be some changes in how things are done. 

The Dodgers released these guidelines today on how the games will operate. Tickets will be digital-only in order to prevent contact as much as possible. All game tickets will be delivered via the MLB Ballpark app. The capacity for games is still to be determined by California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy framework, with 20 percent capacity as of now. That will change as vaccinations progress.

In terms of social distancing, the Dodgers are selling tickets in pods of 2, 4, and 6 seats. The team is encouraging social distancing at all times throughout the stadium, asking fans to keep their distance with limited capacity elevators, restrooms, and indoor areas. Unused seats will be locked up with zip-tied and stanchions will be placed in higher trafficked areas to promote separation.

Only clear bags will be permitted into Dodger Stadium in 2021. Bags, backpacks, coolers, and large purses will no longer be allowed as part of the contactless experience. Purchases made throughout the ballpark will need to be contactless and cashless, with kiosks throughout the stadium. The Dodgers also require that parking be purchased in advance.

Face coverings are to be worn at all times for fans ages 2 and up. The exception to this is when Dodgers fans are eating or drinking in their ticketed seats. There is no longer a designed smoking area at the stadium, thus smoking will not be allowed. 

Hand sanitizing stations will be set up all around Dodger Stadium. Additional staff will be on hand to help clean and sanitize high-traffic areas and concession locations. All bathrooms have been modified to fit a reduced capacity and utilize touchless soap and water. 

Be sure to check back in regularly in the days leading up to the Dodgers home opener. The team will change and update policies as necessary, as mandated by state and local law.

  1. Get a couple of Dodger dogs. I mean the Covid trained mans best friend sniffer dogs.
    Limit it to two entrances, one on each side of the stadium.
    Everyone walks past the covid detection dogs.
    You get pulled out of line? You and your party go to a medical facility for further testing.
    Fail? Ticket money applied to future purchase.
    Fill up the stadium with healthy people.

  2. I STILL HAVE NOT HEARD IF THE TICKETS I BOUGHT ON LINE OVER A MONTH AGO THROUGH YOUR TICKET AGENCY ARE GOING TO BE HONORED.

  3. I have been a season ticket holder for the past 10 years and by far the Dodgers organization has played their own game, last year collecting monies and not refunding monies and then applying it to the 2021 season which now is Pod allocation of seats and no guarantee of your actual seats that you have had all of those prior years . Only 14 home games plan allotted through June 2nd. You must get your tickets through MLB.com and what happens to fans who don’t have IPHONEs or if your battery goes dead on you prior to getting to the gate ? Parking needs to bought in advance -REALLY ? No cash at the games what happens to fans who don’t have credit cards ? With that being all said I told the Dodger to take my 2020 monies they already have and hold on to it for the 2022 Season and hopefully we can get back to American Sport of Baseball
