Officials with Southwest University Park, home of the El Paso Chihuahuas and El Paso Locomotive FC, announced Monday that seating capacity for all events will increase to 100% beginning May 27 when the Chihuahuas play Oklahoma City (Los Angeles Dodgers affiliate).
“The El Paso region has made significant progress in the fight against COVID-19 and fans of both teams continue to be very cooperative and respectful of the health and safety protocols put in place at Southwest University Park,” MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford said.
“We are pleased to join many teams and venues across the state and country which are safely returning to full capacity and to welcome back the amazing fans of both the Chihuahuas and Locomotive.”
As previously announced, facial coverings will no longer be required at all events for ticketed guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Facial coverings are still recommended for guests who are not vaccinated.
