Camden Yards set to open with 25% capacity

Finally, the news we have all been waiting for! There will be fans in Baltimore in 2021! According to The Baltimore Sun, OPACY will operate at 25% capacity, allowing about 11,000 fans in attendance to start the season!

Originally on Tuesday, Maryland’s Governor Larry Hogan reopened a big part of the state, including large venues like Camden Yards to operate at 50%.

On Thursday, the team announced their own restrictions, which limits fans to 25%, instead of 50%. Also, fans are required to wear a mask at all times, unless eating or drinking at their assigned seats. The seats will be set up in “pods”, either of two, four, or six seats. Each “pod” will also be set up at least six feet away from other fans.

“The long-awaited return of fans is the result of successful nation-wide and organizational efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, increase vaccination access for millions of Americans, and strengthen our economy by bringing employees back to work.”

If you are a Birdland Member, we have information for you as well. The Orioles immediately began to reseat the Birdland Members, and those members will be notified via email very soon. After that, the team will announce how it plans to handle the single-game ticket situation.

After a whole season with no fans, and now an entire year of weirdness, we finally get some sense of normalcy. You can best believe those Bohs will be extra cold, those hot dogs will run extra fast, and you’ll have chills the first time you hear “O!” during the National Anthem for the first time in two years!
