Last spring, when we normally would have been welcoming our fans back to Nationals Park for a new season of baseball, our stadium instead stood empty and quiet. We all dreamed of the day that fans would once again be able to come back to the ballpark.
This dream came true on April 6, when we were able to welcome 5,000 fans back to Nationals Park for Opening Day. After continued discussion and planning with the Government of the District of Columbia, health experts and Major League Baseball, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding to full capacity at Nationals Park, beginning with our June 10 game. We will retain many of the health & safety protocols that have been in place since the start of the season, including measures to prevent crowding at gates and concession stands.
We thank you for your patience and understanding in following these guidelines during this unprecedented time. Welcome home, fans!
In accordance with the regulations set in place by the Government of the District of Columbia, Nationals Park will operate at full capacity, effective June 10. Additional precautions related to not only seating, but also all game day operations, are being taken to prioritize the health and safety of our fans, players and staff. Please visit nationals.com/welcomehome for full information on new health & safety measures in place at Nationals Park for the 2021 season.
