WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Kansas City Royals soon will have opportunities to play in front of full crowds at home games inside Kauffman stadium. The team announced the move to full capacity at the stadium along with news that single-game tickets for the Memorial Day (May 31) game against Pittsburg and for the rest of the season go on sale Thursday, May 20. Starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, fans can buy single-game tickets exclusively at

“The thought of having the opportunity to fill Kauffman Stadium again gives all of us a huge jolt of adrenaline,” said Mike Matheny, Royals’ manager. “After having no fans in the ballpark last year, the crowds this year have been passionate and loud, so expanding the capacity to the max can only strengthen our home field advantage at The K.”

The Royals said many of its health and safety protocols from the beginning of the regular season will remain in place. These protocols include restrictions on bag and outside food in the stadium and a continuation of being cashless, meaning fans need a credit or debit card to make on-site purchases at Kauffman Stadium. Also, the Royals said that tickets and parking will only be accessible on mobile devices via the MLB Ballpark app and must be purchased in advance.

A notable change in the protocols at Kauffman Stadium is that mask no longer will be required for vaccinated fans. The masks are still recommended for non-vaccinated fans, the team said.
