San Francisco, CA (May 3rd, 2021) – Earlier this month, the San Francisco Giants welcomed baseball fans back to Oracle Park with limited seating capacity. As is the case with the rest of the live event world, seating capacity continues to evolve as health conditions improve. By their second homestand, the Giants were able to expand seating capacity by introducing vaccinated sections within Oracle Park.
The new vaccinated seating sections are separate from the physically-distanced, pod seating areas and allow for more fans to attend upcoming games.
With these sections now on sale to the public, fully vaccinated fans can choose to purchase single tickets, tickets for odd-numbered party sizes, or buy tickets for larger groups. Additionally, socially distanced seating pods remain a viable option for any fan. The ticket purchase options are managed within MyProVenue™, the patron-facing web application for tickets organized by each protected sales group. MyProVenue allows the Giants and Tickets.com to efficiently manage the seating inventory to ensure that the new vaccinated seating sections won’t overlap with the pod-seating sections. Ashley Connor, Sr. Manager Ticket Solutions, San Francisco Giants commented,
“Protected Sales Groups allowed us to offer fans seating at their comfort level while managing complex seating requirements. We recognized that optionality is important to fans as we gradually increase seating capacity based on approval from local public health officials. Protected Sale Groups enables us to rollout vaccinated or social distance seating based on fan demand without rescaling the seating manifest in advance.”
On site, the Giants used Near Field Communications (NFC) ticket scanning at entrances and kept fan contact to a minimum by seating fans at a physical distance from one another. Using the Janam® handheld scanners, Apple Wallet™ & Google Pay™ NFC digital tickets are validated by Alfred™, the all in-one access control solution from Tickets.com.
As capacity constraints continue to evolve, the SF Giants and Tickets.com stand ready make quick adjustments to deliver the best fan experiences at the ballpark.
