COVID-19 guidelines

The Syracuse Mets will follow the guidelines set forth by New York State and limit tickets sales to 20 percent capacity with socially distanced pod seating, which will allow 2,163 fans to attend each game. Pods are predetermined and will range from 1 seat to 6 seats.

Under New York State guidelines, fans will also be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry. Proof of vaccination is only valid if the individual has received their second Moderna or Pfizer shot, or first Johnson & Johnson shot at least two weeks prior to the event date. Negative COVID-19 tests must be dated within 72 hours of the event if it is a PCR test, or within 6 hours of the event if it is an Antigen test.

The Syracuse Mets will also be screening fans upon entry to the stadium, including temperature testing.

Fans will be required to wear a face mask covering both their nose and mouth for the duration of the game — unless they are actively eating or drinking. Fans will also be asked to remain in their seats and not linger throughout the stadium, unless using the restroom, purchasing food or drinks at the concession stands, or shopping in the team store.
