As the 2020 regular season is poised to begin without fans permitted to attend games at Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Dodgers are providing fans with an opportunity to fill seats with cutouts of themselves.
The sale begins at 10 a.m. PT on Wednesday, and fans are encouraged to act quickly at Dodgers.com/FanCutouts to reserve their spot at Dodger Stadium, as only a limited number of locations are available. My Dodgers Members and Premium Clients were given access to a presale.
Cutouts in the Dugout Club and Home Run Seats out in the pavilions cost $299, while Field and Loge locations will be $149. Net proceeds from the sale of cutouts will benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.
“The electrifying energy of Dodger Stadium is rooted in the passion of our fans. While we are saddened that they will not be part of the live experience, the personalized cutouts will bring a bit of color to the stadium during these challenging times,” LADF CEO Nichol Whiteman said.
“Thanks to the generosity of our fans everywhere, this campaign will fund our critical work. Together we will help Angelenos when they need support the most.”
All fan cutouts will be authenticated as game used through the MLB Authentication Program. The cutouts are made of Coroplast, a weatherproof material, and are 18” (width) by 30” height. Images are subject to approval by the Dodgers.
The Dodgers ask fans to upload photos of themselves wearing team gear or plain attire. Photos that contain obscene, lewd, explicit, discriminatory, derogatory, violent, offensive, infringing, or otherwise inappropriate content, will not be printed as a cutout.
Neither will commercial advertisements, including sponsor names, logos, slogans, websites, and/or phone numbers; social media handles and hashtags; offensive or negative references to any MLB team; or names, images or likenesses of any MLB players.
A complete list of what’s prohibited on cutouts can be viewed on the Dodgers’ website.
Piped-in sound at Dodger Stadium
Given fans won’t be allowed in attendance when the season begins, the club is committed to providing sound through piped-in fan reaction.
“The silent games are tough,” Corey Seager said. “It’s hard to communicate with your teammates. It’s hard to communicate without people hearing, so a little bit of background noise definitely goes a long way with trying to game plan and talk through some stuff without people overhearing.”
