The Major League Baseball (MLB) team Minnesota Twins (US) are all set to increase capacity at their home arena Target Field over the next several weeks, with plans to host games at 100 percent capacity starting July 5th.

‘BRINGMETHENEWS’ stated that the Twins announced the news recently close on the heels of the Governor of Minnesota, Tim Walz, sharing the State’s timeline for ending COVID-19 restrictions as the United States slowly comes out of the deadly grip of the virulent virus which has taken a huge toll on lives in the country – the highest in the world so far. The vaccination drive in US has helped bring down infections.

The Minnesota Twins are an American professional baseball team based in Minneapolis (US). The Twins compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League Central Division. The team is named after the Twin Cities area which includes the two adjoining Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The 39,504-capacity Target Field is a baseball park in the historic warehouse district of downtown Minneapolis (US). It is the home ballpark of the Minnesota Twins, the State’s Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise.

‘BRINGMETHENEWS’ further stated that for the 12 home games to be held between May 14th-May 30th, Target Field will operate at up to 60 percent capacity. For the team’s 12 home games in June, capacity will be up to 80 percent and starting July 5th, Target Field will have full capacity for the final 40 home games of the season.

Said club President & CEO Dave St. Peter, “Our fans are what make baseball great, as they truly transform Target Field into our home ballpark, and a day or evening at the Twins game into lifelong memories. To that end, we are grateful that our State and region continue to be on a path toward improved health and a return to normalcy, and we are absolutely thrilled to begin our measured, responsible and safe ramp up to 100 percent capacity at the ballpark. We look forward to continue bringing our community together through Twins baseball this season, and we cannot wait to see – and hear – a full house at Target Field.”

Tickets for the May games are on sale now and will be sold in pods of two or four. Tickets for the rest of the season go on sale on May 20th, and season ticket holders will get to return to their normal seat locations and seats won’t be restricted to pods.

The Twins will still offer a limited number of physically distanced seats during the 2021 season.

There are no social distancing requirements at Target Field but fans aged two and above will still be required to wear face coverings, except when actively eating or drinking, until further notice.
