2021 Baseball Seating Capacity

Latest update (June 22): Almost all teams are operating at full capacity…or will by July 5.

2021 Major League Baseball Seating Plans Still Evolving

Ballpark seating plans for the 2021 Major League Baseball season continue to change daily, and differs by team. We’ve compiled the latest plan for each team below. Most teams are opening up additional capacity, many already at full capacity. Most should be full capacity by early July.

Finding Tickets while under capacity restrictions

Restricted capacities will mean that tickets will be harder to come by than in pre-COVID times, unless you are already a season ticket holder. However, tickets have found their way to the secondary market. There are many reputable, legit ticket brokers online, a few that even provide ticket discounts. While many teams make it easy for season ticket holders to sell their tickets on StubHub, they are not the only source (and definitely not the cheapest) for tickets. Among the highest-rated brokers are Vivid Seats and Ticket Network, based on their lower all-in costs (list + fees).

About those fees: All of the brokers on the secondary market charge fees. And theyk all seem ridiculous once they are added on to the base price. We always recommend shopping a few brokers to sanity check the “all-in” cost, but we have found that most often Vivid Seats and Ticket Network win the price battle – even if supply is limited a bit more than StubHub.
