The Kansas City Royals have been so-so on the field, but they’ll soon be drawing more fans anyway.

That’s because the Royals have joined so may other sports franchises in opening their stadium to full capacity. In the case of Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, that return to 100% capacity will take place May 31, when the Royals host the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“The thought of having the opportunity to fill Kauffman Stadium again gives all of us a huge jolt of adrenaline,” Royals manager Mike Matheny said in a statement. “After having no fans in the ballpark last year, the crowds this year have been passionate and loud, so expanding the capacity to the max can only strengthen our home field advantage at The K.”

Along with opening fully again, Kauffman Stadium will not require fans to wear masks, though “masks are recommended if you haven’t been vaccinated.”

Also per the announcement:

“Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The best way to ensure the best seats at the lowest prices for future games is securing a Season Ticket Membership. Please visit www.royals.com/seasontickets.”
