“We’re proceeding right now with a high level of optimism that we’re going to return to normal,” Schiller said, “and we’re going to be ready for that. Obviously, if there’s not true normal and there’s some sort of alteration, whether it be restricted capacity or anything else that might happen, we believe we can react and make those changes at that point in time.
“But as we sit here today, roughly five months from opening day, we think we should plan for a full season with full attendance.”
The Braves’ home opener is scheduled for April 9 against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Single-game tickets will be available for purchase on the Braves’ website, starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Season-ticket packages also remain on sale.
Schiller said the demand for season tickets has been strong, both in terms of renewals and new sales. He said 1,200 new season tickets have been sold for 2021 since the start of the pandemic.
“This is going to be a really strong season-ticket base going into next year,” he said.
The 2021 MLB All-Star game is scheduled to be played at Truist Park on July 13, and access to purchase tickets for the game has been guaranteed to the Braves’ full season-ticket holders.
The Braves will continue to work with health experts to update safety measures at Truist Park, Schiller said.
“If we have to continue to institute certain protocols or protections, we will do so in order to keep our fans safe when they come watch Atlanta Braves games here,” he said.
