Braves stadium

The Braves’ opportunity to host this season’s All-Star Game at Truist Park in Cobb County was stripped by Major League Baseball on Friday, in light of the recently enacted new voting law in Georgia.

Atlanta Braves fans will soon be able to watch their team from the stands in Truist Park for the first time since fall 2019.

On April 9, when they face off against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Braves will open the ballpark at 33% capacity, the team announced Friday.

Capacity will be revisited for each homestand, according to the team.

“After a long and difficult year, we are excited to welcome Braves fans back to Truist Park beginning on April 9th,” Derek Schiller, President and CEO of the Braves, said in a release. “Baseball has had a healing affect over the course of our history, and we look forward to be a place where our fans can come, have fun and enjoy cheering on their favorite team in a welcoming environment.”

After a presale for A-List Members and single-game ticket buyers who had previously purchased April tickets, a general on-sale will be available to the general public starting 10 a.m. March 30 at www.braves.com/tickets.

Modified seating will be done in socially distanced pods around the ballpark, mainly two or four seats. Additional health and safety measures include wearing masks when not actively eating or drinking, contactless mobile ticketing and ordering, and enhanced sanitation.
