Mariners to allow nearly 31,000 mostly vaccinated fans at T-Mobile Park starting June 14

The Seattle Mariners will increase seating capacity at T-Mobile Park to nearly 31,000 people for the upcoming home stand June 14-23, but most of those fans will be vaccinated. 

The updated operations plan allows 26,265 tickets to be sold as vaccine only with no social distancing, the team says in a news release. The remaining capacity will be sold in socially distanced pods of 1-6 seats for a total of 4,680 seats. Total ballpark capacity under the approved plan is 30,945 out of 47,000.

Before the latest announcement, the Mariners had been allowing up to 14,000 fans at T-Mobile Park, including a vaccinated only section. 

T-Mobile Park should be open at full capacity for games beginning July 2. Gov. Jay Inslee has said the state will be fully reopened by June 30.
