The Dodgers will have fans in the stands immediately for the 2021 season. That’s the good news. The bad news is that they now have to find a way to distribute the limited number of tickets to their fanbase.
The slight opening of California made it possible for the Dodgers to host just over 11,000 fans at their home opener. With many season ticket holders left in the dark over the last couple of months, questions started to immediately pop up on how those 11,000+ tickets would be spread out.
Dodgers fans got their answer today in an email from the team. The new ticket policy from the team covers games all the way up to June. That means that the first 29 home games on the schedule will fall under this policy that they settled on.
Season ticket holders were offered 14-game plans as part of their deal. Any ticket holders that were part of the premium ticket packages were offered 7-game plans with the ability to purchase a 14-game plan in a non-premium seat. The seats will be sold in the pods of 2, 4, and 6 as promised to continue social distancing.
For Opening Day at Dodger Stadium, season ticket holders are not guaranteed an opportunity to purchase a ticket for that day. Non-season ticket holders will also get the chance to purchase those tickets through a lottery pick system. The Dodgers also noted that there will be other games available to purchase outside of the 14-game plan for season ticket holders.
Everything You Need to Know About Getting Tickets This Season!
The Dodgers are set to announce ticket pre-sale dates in the coming days. Season ticket holders will receive a priority time slot prior to the online sale that will take place from March 23rd to March 25th.
It’s worth noting that any of these rules could change on a dime. If California further loosens up COVID restrictions, the Dodgers will be able to add more tickets.
