ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KFVS) - The Cardinals have received approval to increase Busch Stadium seating capacity, beginning with the Friday, May 21 game vs. the Chicago Cubs.

The City of St. Louis Health Department has approved the seating increase, which will feature seating pods spaced a minimum of three feet apart in all directions, allowing Busch Stadium capacity to almost double.

The Cardinals are hoping for full capacity at Busch Stadium by June.

The vice president of ticket sales told radio station KMOX that team officials are hopeful COVID-19 cases will continue to drop, and said maybe some time in June they’ll be able to fill up the ballpark again.

Additional tickets for the May 21-23 weekend series with the Cubs are available for purchase.

To accommodate the increase of guests at the ballpark, gate times will open two hours before first pitch on Friday-Sunday games and one-and-a-half hours before first pitch on Monday-Thursday contests.
