For the first time since Sept. 29, 2019, Rockies fans can pack Coors Field to full capacity starting June 28.
With the city of Denver’s new public health order enacted on Tuesday, larger outdoor events no longer have capacity limits, distancing requirements or other COVID-related restrictions.
The Rockies responded by lifting capacity limits at Coors Field. Masks are also no longer required at the stadium, although they are recommended for unvaccinated individuals.
Colorado’s June 28 game is against the Pirates and marks the beginning of a seven-game homestand that also features Nolan Arenado and the Cardinals coming to town for a four-game series. The first 15,000 fans through the gates on June 28, which the club is dubbing “Opening Day 2.0,” will receive a commemorative T-shirt.
Colorado began the season with a cap of 21,363 fans (42.6% capacity) for the first month of the season, and that cap got bumped to 35,101 (70% capacity) for June, beginning with Tuesday night’s series opener against the Rangers. Colorado didn’t have any fans during the condensed 2020 season.
Wednesday’s announcement also clears the way for full attendance at the all-star game, to be played at Coors Field on July 13, and its corresponding events.
