Following a safe and successful May homestand, the Greenville Drive has announced that Fluor Field will return to full capacity seating effective June 1, in accordance with changing state and Major League Baseball (MLB) rules and regulations. The Drive, which had been operating at roughly 50 percent capacity and offering general admission seating since its season opener on May 5, will return to an assigned seating model, with ticket sales for the remainder of the season opening on Friday, May 21 at www.greenvilledrive.com.
In accordance with Major League Baseball’s updated protocols, all “buffer zones” from the field will be removed. However, to meet the needs of those fans who prefer to have a socially distanced experience at the ballpark, sections 101 and 117 will be made into pods of two and four seats. These seats will not be available for sale, but rather on a first-come, first-serve basis for any fan with a ticket to a game, with season ticket holders able to reserve pods in advance.
While capacity has been expanded, fan safety remains a top priority at Fluor Field. The Drive will continue to provide various safety measures throughout the ballpark, including increased cleaning procedures in the restrooms and stands, conveniently located hand sanitizer stations, and broader use of mobile ticketing and cashless transactions. Masks, while no longer required in accordance with CDC recommendations and local laws, will be encouraged, especially in crowded sections or lines.
Also, in keeping with its strong corporate citizenship and commitment to protecting the community, the Drive and Fluor Field are proud to offer on-site vaccinations throughout the season, in partnership with Prisma Health. The next vaccination clinic is scheduled for June 1, with additional clinics scheduled for Thursday July 1st, Tuesday August 3rd, and Wednesday September 1st. Any fan can receive a first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, with no appointment required. Doses must be taken a minimum of three weeks and a maximum of six weeks apart, and anyone who receives a vaccine on-site will receive a complimentary ice cream from Sweet Caroline’s and a complimentary ticket to a future Drive game. More information on Fluor Field vaccination clinics can be found at www.greenvilledrive.com.
“Greenville’s front porch is now open for business at nearly full capacity, and we are looking forward to once again providing our community with the best and most affordable experience in all of baseball,” said Greenville Drive Owner and President Craig Brown. “However, as excited as we are, we are committed to doing this safely and responsibly, with the needs of the community foremost in our minds. Opening Fluor Field in this manner is a very visible and huge step in returning to a degree of normalcy here in Greenville, and the Drive is proud to lead the way in a safe and responsible manner.”
