We’re slowly moving back towards a sense of normalcy for Dodgers fans in 2021. Just a few weeks ago, there was uncertainty that there would be fans allowed at their home opener in April. That changed when California moved into the red tier of the COVID-19 action plan.
Today, the Dodgers took another huge step towards being back to full capacity. California gave approval to Los Angeles County to make the move into the orange tier. Under that plan, they would be able to welcome 33 percent capacity into the stadium for games.
That means the Dodgers will be able to have 18,480 people in the stadium for games while in this tier. That does not mean 18,480 tickets though, since they need to account for the number of staff members and security personnel at Chavez Ravine during games.
The Dodgers have not yet said when or if additional tickets will go on sale. They have not made single-game tickets available for fans in 2021, possibly in hopes of adding more by moving into this tier. They were also set to hold a lottery selection to give fans the chance to win tickets to the home opener.
They also had to scrub the previous season-ticket holder plan to adjust for the number of fans initially allowed at games. There is no indication yet that they would change the policy or give season-ticket holders the chance to renew again.
When more information becomes available from the Dodgers, we will pass it on here.
