TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Recently, Governor Jay Inslee announced that sporting events would begin to hold vaccinated sections for individuals who are confirmed to have received a COVID-19 vaccination. Today, the Tri-City Americans became the first sports team in the region to adopt the new rule.

The Tri-City Americans announced the vaccinated section through its social media accounts. Starting with the Friday, May 7th game against the Seattle Thunderbirds, the Americans will open five sections exclusively for individuals who are fully vaccinated. Those tickets are available for purchase on Ticketmaster, but precautions will be taken to prevent people from lying about their vaccination status.

To attend a Tri-City Americans game, you’ll be asked to enter through the Main 2 entrance, where you’ll be required to provide proof of vaccination. Please be advised that there are no refunds or exchanges for individuals who purchase a ticket but do not provide proof of vaccination.

Visitors are asked to wear masks or face covering at all times while attending Americans games. The only exception is when you are eating or drinking. Children between the ages of 2-15 are allowed to sit in the vaccinated section so long as they return a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the game.

If you would like to purchase tickets, you can do so by visiting Ticketmaster here.
