Blue Jays hope to increase capacity for final homestand


The Toronto Blue Jays are making additional tickets available for their final homestand as they await word from the provincial government on a request for increased capacity, the club announced Thursday.

Since returning to Toronto in late July, capacity at Rogers Centre has been limited to 15,000 fans — the maximum allowed at an outdoor venue under Ontario’s current COVID-19 rules.

On the Ticketmaster website, tickets in the upper deck are now available for the last six games. Previously, tickets were sold only in the two lower decks.

Capacity at the venue is 49,286.

The Blue Jays say they are working closely with the offices of Premier Doug Ford, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore and Sport Minister Lisa MacLeod.

Fans 12 and older must be fully vaccinated to attend games.

Toronto has six home games left — starting with three crucial contests against the New York Yankees beginning next Tuesday. The Blue Jays are a half-game back of the Yankees in the race for the final wild-card spot.

The Blue Jays wrap up their regular season with a three-game series against the visiting Baltimore Orioles, Oct. 1-3.
