UPDATE: Irrespective of vaccination status, masks are required overall as of August 30. Guaranteed Rate Field is fully operational as of June 25. & nbsp,

More viewers will now be able to watch the Chicago White Sox in person at Guaranteed Rate Field thanks to their best team in decades.

Guaranteed Rate Field will be available to spectators at 60 % capacity as of May 24 against the St. Louis Cardinals. That & rsquo, up from the previous 25 % it had been.

So about 24,000 fans will be able to attend White Sox games for the time being. It remains to be seen when Guaranteed Rate Field will be open at full capacity, but chief revenue and marketing officer Brooks Boyersaid the following regarding full crowds:

The more people get vaccinated, the more things are opening up, according to & ldquo, who is clearly seeing it and the city & rsquo is proving it. Our message is that this team has earned whole crowds, and we want them to be there. For us, the message will be: Getting vaccinated because we want to hit the target at 100 % potential. & rdquo,

We & rsquo, below, are responding to inquiries regarding COVID – 19 policies and protocols at the appropriate level.

Veils are necessary at Guaranteed Rate Field, right?

The answer is yes for enthusiasts who are at least two years old. Unless you are constantly eating or drinking, that is.

Your mouth and nose may be hidden by your helmet.

Does the White Sox demand immunization documentation?

No, you are not required to present any immunization documentation in order to attend a White Sox activity.

The only exception is that there will be two areas of Guaranteed Rate Field that are only vaccinated. Parts 108 and 109 will be these.

In those areas, masks will still be necessary, but real separation is not. So, anticipate seeing a lot of enthusiasts in those areas.

Is it possible to get vaccinated in a garden?

Yes. The area does host two vaccination sites for the Sox starting on May 24.

The White Sox are also giving away$25 team gift cards to any fan who gets vaccinated at the stadium before the game.

Additionally, a free Tim Anderson bobblehead may be given to those who receive the vaccination on Friday, May 27, and May 28.

Do all tickets have smart capabilities?

Yes, all tickets are mobile. The White Sox website says that “no hard tickets will be available.”

In an effort to reduce participation throughout the garden, sport tickets will also be linked to pre-designated parking lots and gates.

As a result, once inside the area, you will be restricted to particular areas. Unlike in past years, you won’t be able to stroll around the whole stadium.

Participants also signing autographs, right?

Sadly, no. In 2021, people won’t be signing autographs before sports like they did in previous decades.

Are bat practices also open to fans?

Yes. However, unlike in past years, batting practice requires you to sit in your designated seat.

Going into the stands to try to snuggle home run balls is, of course, a part of the fun of watching bowling practice( for some ). However, unless you are seated in the stands, that won’t be permitted in 2021.

How do I place a wager on White Sox contests?

Both the White Sox and Guaranteed Rate Field lack an exclusive sports betting lover and a financial sportsbook.

However, there are six online sportsbooks in the state. If you have already downloaded any of the IL sportsbook apps, you can use them to bet on White Sox games.

The six online sportsbooks in Illinois are DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, Caesars by William Hill, BetRivers and Barstool. Baseball fans can bet on the run line, moneyline over/under, various props, etc. First five betting is also popular in Illinois.

FanDuel frequently sponsors the White Sox, and you’ve probably seen their advertisements during matches at the facility. NBC Sports Chicago, whose recognized sports gambling partner is PointsBet, even broadcasts activities.

If you haven’t already created a sports betting account but would like to, it is no longer possible unless you visit a casino or racetrack.

That’s because Illinois Gov. JB Pritzkerbrought back the in-person registration requirement in April. Before April, online registration was available, dating back to August.
