While Canadian teams still cannot absorb fans, the recovery is accelerating south of the border, with Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker saying Tuesday that clubs in his territory could play in crowded arenas here in August.
Hence, Bruins and the Boston Celtics will have the opportunity to play TD Garden. So is the Red Sox at Fenway Park and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, which is also the home of the revolution. It is clear that everything is conditional on a satisfactory health record in the eyes of the authorities.
Meanwhile, Baker said local sports teams will be able to increase their building capacity from 12% to 25% starting May 10. On that day, the Bruins will host New Yorkers in their last domestic fencing of the regular season.
In Missouri too
Other clubs in the major North American leagues are also gradually increasing their capacity for domestic matches. This is the case for the Kansas City Royals, which will welcome 17,400 fans in May. The cap is set at 10,000 in April, when 37,903 people can usually be seated during major baseball matches.
