Rockies get approval to have 12,500 fans at Coors Field this season


DENVER (KDVR) — The Colorado Rockies will be able to have some fans attend games in person this upcoming season.

A spokesperson from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment confirmed Thursday night that the team was granted a variance allowing fans to be in the stands with “some adjustments.”

The team said Friday that they will be able to have up to 12,500 fans per game beginning on Opening Day. That’s about 25% of the stadium’s capacity.

Coors Field can seat 50,445.

The Rockies said they are working with the health department to monitor conditions, and hope to safely add capacity in the future.

The Colorado Rockies will open the season at home against the World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers on April 1 at 2:10 p.m.
