As Spring Training is starting to get underway and the regular season is approaching, many are wondering about the stadium capacity for American Family Field. On the other side of town, the Bucks have approval to fill 10 percent of the Fiserv Forum. What about the Brewers, though? The latest report, according to Brewers beat writer Adam McCalvy, says the organization submitted a proposal for 35 percent capacity at American Family Field.
NEWS: The Brewers this week took the first step to hosting fans on Opening Day at American Family Field, submitting a 350-page proposal to the City of Milwaukee Health Department that calls for 35% capacity at the start of the season.

Importantly, if the proposal is approved there will be between 14,500-16,000 fans allowed in each home game. Because of the drastic size of the stadium, there should be no issue to follow COVID-19 safety protocols. Additionally, if everything goes well there will be baseball played in front of a crowd on Opening Day. What a joyous day that will be.
The Brewers would sell tickets in pods like they are for Spring Training games. Down at the American Family Fields of Phoenix, the Brewers are allowing fans at 25 percent capacity and tickets are going quickly.
