Brewers go cashless, ban tailgating for start of 2021 season

American Family Field

MILWAUKEE — Brewers fans will be allowed back into American Family Field for the first time in 18 months when the season starts next week, but it won’t be the same experience fans are used to.

In addition to only allowing 25% capacity due to the pandemic, the Brewers are implementing a series of guidelines that treat “fan and employee’s safety as a priority.”

Most notably, cash will not be accepted in the ballpark. Fans who show up intending to pay with cash can use kiosks throughout the park to exchange cash for a prepaid card that can be used anywhere credit cards are accepted, in or outside of the park.

No tailgating will be allowed either.

Fans will also be able to order concessions on their smartphones via the MLB Ballpark App. Orders can also be placed by texting the word “food” to 41835.

In a move to limit the number of person-to-person contacts, all ticketing will be digital, which can be accessed through the MLB Ballpark App.

Other guidelines include mandatory mask wearing for fans older than 2 and required social distancing, among other measures.
