The St. Louis Blues announced Wednesday that the Enterprise Center will open its doors to 1,400 people for the team’s next home games.
The Missouri squad has reached an agreement with the City of St. Louis and its public health department to increase the number of fans able to attend games. The success of the implementation of health and safety measures regarding COVID-19 motivated this choice.
The Blues had played since the start of the year in front of a handful (less than 300) of frontline employees, family members or friends of the players, as well as staff and employees of the organization. In this way, fans will be added who have purchased their tickets, giving priority to season ticket holders.
“Through partnering with public health officials and continued adherence to the safety protocols of our team members and staff, this is an important step towards the responsible return of our dedicated supporters to the Enterprise Center. We can’t wait to see and hear more in the stands, ”Blues President and CEO Chris Zimmerman said in a statement.
The next four home games for the 2019 Stanley Cup champions are scheduled for Feb. 2-7, against the Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche.
The Blues have not ruled out increasing the capacity of their amphitheater again during this season.
