LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Louisville City FC will have its new stadium filled to 50 percent capacity when the season starts back up.

The following safety measures will be in place:

  • Trained staff will before matches clean and disinfect all areas — among them touch points such as handrails, seats and restrooms — in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and local guidelines.

  • Markers and staff will be placed to enforce physical distancing from arrival to Lynn Family Stadium until exit.
  • Non-contact hand sanitizer dispensers have been placed throughout the stadium.
  • With gates opening 90 minutes before kickoff, ticket holders will be provided a suggested arrival time and entry point.
  • Lynn Family Stadium will operate cash-free. Concessions and merchandise locations will accept only credit and debit cards.
  • All concession items will be delivered in an enclosed container or wrapped with plexiglass barriers at all points of sale. Cups will be served with lids and condiments will be packaged.

According to Louisville City FC, the stadium can hold 15,304 people under normal circumstances.
