Milwaukee Brewers Approved to Host 25-Percent Capacity to Open Regular Season
City of Milwaukee Health Department Approves Fan Attendance at American Family Field
MILWAUKEE – For the first time in 18 months, the Milwaukee Brewers will open American Family Field to fans after City of Milwaukee Health Commissioner Kirsten Johnson today approved a plan to begin the regular season at 25-percent of total capacity.
Opening Day is set for Thursday, April 1 at 1:10 p.m. against the Minnesota Twins. The last home game with fans in attendance was on Sept. 22, 2019, a 4-3 Brewers win over Pittsburgh in the middle of a run of 11 wins in 12 games.
“We appreciate the cooperation of Commissioner Johnson and her staff as they reviewed our detailed plan to safely allow fans to watch the Brewers in person. Approval of the plan also allows us to bring much-needed jobs for members of our event staff and game-day workforce.
“We will continue to communicate with the city officials and work toward increasing the capacity if the health metrics continue to improve.”
Brewers Season Seat Holders and Suite Holders will be contacted about their options for attending games in the next week. Information on tickets to individual games will be announced at a later date.
