2021 Season FAQs
When is Opening Day?
The RedHawks will start the 2021 season on the road against the Cleburne Railroaders on May 18 before returning to Newman Outdoor Field on May 25 for the home opener against the Chicago Dogs.
Will the 2020 precautionary seating rules remain in effect for 2021?
No. Most sections of the ballpark will return to pre-2020 ticket policies with reserved tickets for assigned seats available ahead of time via the RedHawks Ticket Office. The RedHawks will continue to follow the guidance provided by the CDC, North Dakota Department of Health and Fargo Cass Public Health to ensure that all relevant safety precautions and requirements are met.
Will Newman Outdoor Field be operating at full capacity for the 2021 season?
The RedHawks will start the season at 75% capacity and continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves. The ultimate decision regarding capacity will be made in adherence with requirements provided by the City of Fargo and the North Dakota Department of Health. Ensuring the health and safety of our fans, players, coaches, staff and community neighbors is our top priority and will guide our decision making process.
What if I want to social distance at the ballpark?
Select sections (A, B, L, and M) inside Newman Outdoor Field have been designated as special socially distanced sections for the 2021 season. In these sections, tickets will be sold in pods ranging from 2 to 6 seats to ensure that fans wishing to social distance can do so without issue. Seating will be staggered so that each pod is at least two seats from any other and no fan will have anyone else directly in front or behind them.
When purchasing tickets in these socially distanced sections, you must purchase all tickets for the pod in which you wish to sit. If you purchase tickets online, selecting one seat in a pod will automatically add all seats in that pod to the cart.
Additionally, every other row in all general admission sections will be blocked off to separate fans wishing to sit in those areas. The RedHawks will continue to evaluate these options as the season goes on, and these guidelines are subject to change.
Will you require fans to wear a mask?
We want everyone to feel as safe and comfortable as possible when enjoying a game at Newman Outdoor Field. Local and state authorities, as well as the CDC, recommend that people wear masks when going out in public, so we encourage all fans to do what they can to protect themselves and others while at the ballpark. We will take all necessary precautions and provide our guests with various disinfectant and sanitizing stations around the ballpark, and if you would like to bring your own health related items to the ballpark please feel free to do so. All bags will be checked before you can enter Newman Outdoor Field.
