St. Louis Cardinals To Have Fans Back This Season

Add the St. Louis Cardinals to the list of pro sports teams slowly but surely allowing fans to return to the stands.

After discussions with the mayor’s office and local health officials, the Cardinals have decided to permit 32% capacity inside Busch Stadium at the very start of the 2021 season.

“We are excited to have our fans back in the stands for the upcoming season,” Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III said in a statement. “We thank Mayor Lyda Krewson’s office, Health Director Dr. Fredrick Echols, and the City of St. Louis Health Department for partnering with us to develop a comprehensive reopening plan that complies with all City health directives and the League’s Return-to-Play Protocols.”

The decision is based on declining COVID-19 positivity reports, as well as the increasing availability of vaccines.

As usual, the Cardinals intend to implement all the ongoing mask and social distance restrictions, as well as mobile-only ticketing and cashless transactions.

In a nutshell, baseball is almost back, and it’s coming to Busch Stadium for 32% of you.
