Rockies receive approval to have 12,500 fans at Coors Field

The Rockies announced Friday that they have been approved by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to allow 12,500 fans per game at Coors Field this season.

The number represents 25 percent of the stadium seating capacity.

“To create a safe and healthy experience for fans, players and staff, the Rockies have implemented all required CDPHE, CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and MLB policies and guidelines,” the team said in a statement. “The Rockies and CDPHE will continue to monitor the conditions, with the hope of safely adding to the capacity number in the future.”

The Rockies begin the regular season at home against the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers on April 1.

Speaking of Los Angeles, a final decision has yet to be made about letting fans in Dodger Stadium for the team’s home opener against the Washington Nationals on April 9.

As for the Padres, San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond on Thursday requested Gov. Gavin Newsom allow fans to return to Petco Park.
