NYCFC COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols

Mask Requirements

All Guests two (2) years and older, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine, must wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times while visiting Yankee Stadium except when actively eating or drinking at their ticketed seats. Facial shields without an accompanying facial covering will not be permitted.

Social Distancing

To begin the season, attendance for select games will be limited to approximately 20% of the capacity of Yankee Stadium. Accordingly, we will be selling a limited number of tickets in specified temporary seating locations to select home games. In an effort to maintain New York State’s physical distancing requirements. Seating will be sold in Tickets Pods that range in size from one (1) to six (6) Guests. The majority of the Ticket Pods will be two (2) to four (4) Guests in size.

Temperature Checks

Each Guest in attendance will be required to complete temperature checks on each game day in order to gain entry.

Cashless Transactions

To reduce and avoid contact between cash and food/retail handling, all Yankee Stadium retail food and beverage locations will be cashless and will only accept credit/debit cards, advanced purchases, and touchless payments. Additionally, mobile ordering and pick up through Uber Eats will be available at select stands on the Field and Main Levels. For Guests who wish to pay with cash, cash conversion stations (e.g., reverse ATM machines) will be available at four locations throughout Yankee Stadium issuing no-fee, prepaid debit cards starting at $1 minimum denomination. The prepaid debit card can be used at any food or retail location inside the Stadium. Any remaining funds left on the prepaid debit card can be used anywhere that Mastercard is accepted.

Bag Requirements

Each Guest is welcome to bring one bag into Yankee Stadium provided the bag is soft-sided (e.g., diaper bags, small purses, etc.) and its dimensions do not exceed 16 inches by 16 inches by 8 inches. Briefcases, coolers and other hard-sided bags or containers are not permitted. All bags will be thoroughly inspected before they are permitted into the Stadium. Bag-size bins will be used at inspection points, and bags and their contents must fit without assistance, modification or adjustment. There is no storage area for any items at Yankee Stadium. To enable Guests to enter the Stadium in a more timely manner, Yankee Stadium management encourages Guests to remain aware of and comply with the bag policy, as well as consider carrying as little as possible. Please note security regulations may be amended at any time.


Many concessions locations will remain active to continue to serve and promote physical distancing. We have updated our transaction process and item packaging to encourage a contactless, expedited service. Additionally, mobile ordering and pick up through Uber Eats will be available at select stands on the Field and Main Levels. Guests may only eat or drink in their ticketed seat and are not permitted to eat or drink while on the concourse. Face coverings are required at all times while visiting Yankee Stadium, including while in your ticketed seat, unless actively eating or drinking.

MLS is Back Tournament Info

On June 3rd, Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Association ratified a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.  This will clear the way for the league to play a summer tournament in Orlando, Florida. 

The tournament, which will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports on Disney World property, will be closed to fans. Players and team staff will be tested for COVID-19, and go through various safety protocols. More details on the plans for the tournament below:

Under the current plan, teams would arrive in Orlando on June 24, then train for two weeks. After this mini-preseason, the tournament would commence with a three-game group stage followed by a single-elimination knockout round. Teams would leave Orlando immediately after being eliminated

This would keep teams in Orlando for 35 days at most instead of the league’s previous plan, which would have lasted more than 10 weeks. The timeline addresses widespread concerns from players throughout the league about extended separation from their families.

Garber said the league is still finalizing details of the Orlando tournament and declined to comment on tournament dates and broadcast plans
