T-Mobile Park increases capacity for Mariners fans

SEATTLE — Starting Monday, capacity levels at T-Mobile Park are increasing.

Just in time for a home game against the Twins, T-Mobile park can now safely host up to 68% capacity. That’s a mix of vaccinated fans and those who aren’t providing evidence of immunization.

The updated plan allows for roughly 26,000 vaccinated-only tickets to be sold. Anyone with one of those tickets will receive a wristband upon entry and no social distancing or mask are required.

The remaining roughly 4,700 seats will be sold in socially distanced pods that are essentially one to six seats bundled together and sold as a group.

Prior to the announcement, only 14,000 fans were allowed at Mariners home games. Now, capacity has increased to 30,900.
