More than 11,500 tickets will be available for Major League Baseball (MLB) games at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.
Fans will be able to attend games for the first time this season after the league detailed plans for a limited number of spectators at this month’s National League Championship Series and World Series at the new home of the Texas Rangers.
MLB will work with the Rangers to see around 10,550 fans to be spread throughout the ballpark and 950 in suites. Tickets for all seven games of each series will go on sale next Tuesday.
The first game of the NLCS on October 12 will mark the first time fans have attended games this season, the start of which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The World Series begins on October 20 and will mark the first time that MLB’s showpiece event has been held entirely at one site since 1944.
MLB has received the necessary approvals to allow fans at Globe Life Field, which has a capacity of 40,300. Tickets in the seating bowl will be sold in groups of four contiguous seats, called pods, with individuals restricted to purchasing one pod per game.
