The Arizona Diamondbacks have announced that capacity at Chase Field will expand to approximately 20,000 fans per game beginning with the home opener on April 9 vs. the Cincinnati Reds. The additional seats will be released on Friday at 9 a.m. after the initial capacity sold out in less than 2 hours last week.
“As we continue to see the key measurements improve throughout the state and the restrictions lifted on businesses, we feel very comfortable that we can permit additional fans to enjoy D-backs baseball while still providing a safe and comfortable environment,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall. “We will continue to require masks and ask fans to distance appropriately while keeping all other policies in place to start the season.”
Last week, the team unveiled a series of health and comfort measures to ensure fan safety, which can be seen at dbacks.com/health. Mobile food ordering presented by Chase, cashless and touchless concessions and merchandise and increased sanitation measures around the ballpark were among the new additions to Chase Field. The team also announced a Clear Bag policy that will remain in place and can be seen at dbacks.com/clearbag
The first 5,000 fans on April 9-11 will receive a Clear Bag courtesy of Gila River Hotels and Casinos.
