The Los Angeles Dodgers officially announced plans for single-game tickets along with Dodger Stadium policies and procedures for the 2021 regular season. The Fan Safety Portal is available at Dodgers.com/FanSafety, which will be updated as protocols are finalized.
Fans currently remain eligible to enter a lottery for Opening Day tickets, with submissions required by 11:59 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 28. The Dodgers then will begin a random selection process on or around Monday, and those selected for an opportunity to purchase tickets to the home opener at Dodger Stadium will be notified via email.
As for policies and protocols, the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has ushered in plenty of change. At present time the Dodgers are permitted to welcome 20% of Dodger Stadium capacity with L.A. County being in the red tier of California’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy reopening framework.
However, current trend has the county nearing the orange tier, which would amount to the Dodgers being able to host up to 33% of capacity. Reaching the yellow tier brings an increase to 67% of capacity.
Regardless of the tier and number of fans approved to attend home games, all tickets will be issued digitally and scanned from mobile devices at Dodger Stadium entrances. All game tickets will be delivered via the MLB Ballpark app, ensuring touchless entry.
All fans will be seated in physically distanced pods of two, three, four, five or six seats.
The Dodgers encourage social distancing at all times at Dodger Stadium, with capacity limited in elevators, restrooms and indoor areas.
Fans are additionally asked to refrain from congregating on the concourse, where signage and floor markers will indicate six feet of separation. Unused seats will be zip tied and stanchions will be placed in higher-trafficked areas to further promote distancing.
Dodger Stadium and its surrounding parking lots are now smoke free, including prohibiting the use of electronic cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products on the property.
Hand sanitizing stations have been added through the ballpark and additional staff will be present for cleaning high-touch areas. All bathrooms have been modified to reduce capacity and will utilize touchless soap and towel dispensers.
Plexiglass dividers have also been added to information kiosks and other areas of interaction. Furthermore, all purchases inside Dodger Stadium will be contactless and cashless. The Dodgers installed cash-to-card kiosks throughout the ballpark to assist with the transition to cashless transactions. Cash-to-card kiosks will accept cash and add value to a Mastercard debit cash card.
Procedures for ordering food and beverage will be announced at a later date.
Face coverings will be required for all fans ages 2 years old and above. Fans are permitted to pull down their face covering only when eating or drinking in their ticketed seats. Neck gaiters, bandanas and masks with valves are not considered appropriate face coverings.
Dodger Stadium bag policy
Only clear bags will be permitted with a maximum size of 12”x12”x6” (the size of a one-gallon freezer bag). Bags, backpacks, coolers, large purses, etc., are no longer permitted at Dodger Stadium. The exception being bags carried for medical reasons or manufactured diaper bags that accompany infants and young children.
Dodger Stadium parking
Dodger Stadium parking lots now will only open 1.5 hours prior to the game and stadium gates will open one hour before first pitch. Parking must be purchased in advance.
