When the Phillies return home to Philadelphia for a weekend homestand against the Washington Nationals on June 4, they’ll play in front of their largest home crowd of the season. The team announced Friday that Citizens Bank Park will once again operate at full capacity starting June 4.
The move comes after Philadelphia city officials announced a plan to lift most COVID-19 restrictions on June 2. Sports stadiums located in the city will no longer operate under capacity limits. The original target date for the rollback on restrictions was June 11, with the Phillies welcoming a full crowd for its home series against the New York Yankees starting June 12.
Starting June 4, fans will also be allowed to tailgate in the surrounding parking lots south of Pattison Ave. Fans are still required to wear masks in indoor areas of the ballpark, which include restrooms, elevators, retail stores and the Hall of Fame and Diamond Club concourses. Unvaccinated fans are strongly encouraged to wear their masks in all indoor and outdoor areas in and around the ballpark.
The Phillies were allowed to welcome up to 16,000 fans during their previous home series against the Boston Red Sox from May 21 to 23.
