KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fans will return to Kauffman Stadium to watch the Kansas City Royals play ball this summer. The question now is how many people will be allowed in for each game.

Major League Baseball announced earlier this month that the 2021 season will start on time, and a limited number of fans would be allowed in the stands.

MLB also said that fans will not need a COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination to get into a game. The league doesn’t plan on conducting temperature checks either.

Fans will need to sit at least six feet apart and wear masks unless eating or drinking. There will also be a buffer zone around dugouts, meaning fans will not be allowed to sit in the first three rows unless the Royals add Plexiglas.

The Royals confirmed the plan to allow fans Tuesday afternoon, but at this point said the organization was waiting to hear from Major League Baseball about capacity restrictions.
