The Indianapolis Indians have announced the Marion County Public Health Department has approved the team’s plan to operate at 25% capacity at Victory Field through the end of May. The team says games will be held with health and safety protocols in place, including mask wearing.
At 25% capacity, the team says Victory Field can accommodate about 3,450 fans per game.
“We are appreciative of the guidance and leadership shown from the Marion County Public Health Department throughout the pandemic and are thankful that with its approval, our passionate fans can safely return to Victory Field for our first homestand,” said Randy Lewandowski, Indianapolis Indians president and general manager. “We truly look forward to welcoming fans and Indians baseball back to Victory Field as we celebrate our beautiful ballpark’s 25th anniversary.”
The team has outlined the new safety protocols for game day, which include:
- Per the current MCPHD order, face coverings will be required for all fans over the age of 2 years old. Fans may only remove masks when actively eating or drinking in their ticketed seat location.
- Seating options will primarily be sold in pods of 2, 4 or 6 seats in the seating bowl to ensure social distancing.
- All concession stands will be cashless with food and condiments distributed in closed or prepackaged containers.
- The Indians have transitioned to a digital ticketing system to provide a safe, convenient and secure way for fans to use and share game tickets. Digital ticketing provides a contactless entry solution for all fans coming to Victory Field.
As the season progresses and summer approaches, the Indians say they will unveil Victory Field’s capacity percentage and tickets on sale to the public for June-September games as they are approved.
The team says single-game tickets for their six-game homestand against Toledo will go on sale to the public on April 28.
