At the request of Fukuoka Prefecture, which started measures equivalent to "priority measures such as spread prevention" by the 19th of this month, professional baseball and Softbank will increase the number of spectators in the five games played at their bases to 5,000 from the 7th. I decided to limit it.
As a countermeasure against the infection of the new coronavirus, SoftBank has held a limit on the number of spectators in the games held at its home base, PayPay Dome, to 20,000.
While the spread of the new coronavirus has not stopped, Fukuoka Prefecture has begun its own measures equivalent to "priority measures such as prevention of spread" until the 19th of this month.
At the request of the prefecture, Softbank will limit the number of spectators in the three consecutive games against Seibu from the 7th to the 9th and the two consecutive games against Lotte on the 11th and 12th during this period to 5,000. I decided that.
Ticket sales for sponsored games after the 7th will be suspended at noon on the 6th.
According to the team, there is no change in the start time of the match, tickets already sold for the match during this period are valid and may have more than 5,000 spectators.
