Attendance

How many fans can be in LMCU Ballpark at the same time for a game this season?

When state and local guidelines are announced for our first game day dates, we will post those, allowable attendance numbers, and other COVID-19 protocols. Stay tuned!

Autographs

Will I still get to seek player autographs this year at the ballpark?

COVID-19 protocols developed by MLB for its players, requires fans to remain at six feet or more from the players. Until restrictions are lifted by MLB, players will not be allowed to sign autographs or engage with Whitecaps fans. When this changes, we will announce it on this page and on social media.

2020 Tickets

I have tickets from 2020, what do I do with them?

The deadlines for refunds has passed. Your purchase from 2020 has been credited toward the 2021 season and will be available on your Tickets.com account. Tickets for the 2021 season will be available in the coming weeks.

Fans

Will Whitecaps baseball begin without fans (players only)?

In our communication with Major League Baseball, Whitecaps baseball without fans is not an option at the current time. We are optimistic that our season will begin with fans in a safe, family-fun environment. When state and local guidelines are announced for our first game day dates, we will post those, allowable attendance numbers, and other COVID-19 protocols.

Food

Will you be selling my favorite ballpark foods and drink this summer?

Yes! Some things will never change! We are working hard on protocols to keep our fans safe when you are in your seats or picking up your concessions. Our menu will be available at our website soon!
