Two days ago, the Brewers announced that they would be increasing capacity at American Family Field to 50% starting this Saturday against the Braves. It’s another step towards a return to normal, but the next step is already planned out. Today, the city of Milwaukee announced that they will be lifting many gathering limits starting on June 15. Following that announcement, the Brewers announced that they will allow 100% capacity starting on June 25, the beginning of their first full homestand after the June 15 change (though the Brewers will still play games on June 15 and 16 at 50%).
This is a big step towards a return to normal, though some restrictions will remain in place. Masks will still be required to be worn while not eating or drinking. Vendors will not be in the seating bowl as well. While social distancing will not happen in normal seats, there will be a couple of sections set aside to accommodate those who would like it.
Once the Brewers play their game tomorrow, they will have played 20 games with approximately 25% capacity at American Family Field. The next 18 games will be played at 50% capacity. Assuming all goes well, the remaining 44 games at home will be at 100% capacity for the remainder of the season.
Among the 30 teams in MLB, the Brewers are one of just a few teams to move towards higher capacity limits. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes that the Braves, Diamondbacks, and Rangers are the only teams currently at full capacity, and the Brewers will be one of seven teams moving towards 50% or higher capacity.
The Brewers also announced that full season and partial season ticket packages are available immediately. Single game tickets through May 27 are already on sale, and details for buying single game tickets for the remainder of the season will be announced on Friday at 8:30 AM.
