The Atlanta Braves intend to increase seating capacity to 50% for their second homestand of the season, the team announced Thursday.
This follows an earlier announcement that they’ll allow 33% capacity for their first homestand.
In other words, the Braves are allowing about 20,500 fans in their 41,000-seat stadium April 23-29, the dates of their second homestand. Their first homestand, scheduled for April 9-15, will allow about 13,500 fans.
“After reviewing our seating pods, we feel expanding capacity to 50% will still allow for our fans to be safely distanced from other seating pods,” Braves President and CEO Derek Schiller said in a statement. “As we previously mentioned, we will review seating and make any necessary changes as the season progresses.”
Single-game tickets for all Braves home games will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
“The first homestand features a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies (April 9-11) and a four-game series against the Miami Marlins (April 12-15),” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution noted. “The home opener will mark the first time fans have attended a game in Truist Park since October 2019.”
