Citi Field to Expand to Full Capacity for 90 percent of Stadium for New York Mets games beginning Friday, June 11

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today updated New Yorkers on the state's progress combatting COVID-19. Additionally, the Governor announced that beginning Friday, June 11, Citi Field will expand full capacity sections for vaccinated individuals to 90 percent of the stadium for New York Mets home games. In total, this would enable more than 32,000 to attend games.

"Over half of all New Yorkers have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. To think that at this point last year the vaccine was a dream on the horizon is staggering. I am proud to lead the people of this state who have gotten us to where we are," Governor Cuomo said. "New Yorkers are tough and together we have carried each other through this pandemic and we are ever closer to emerging into a better, safer, reimagined state. Those who have not yet received the vaccine should take advantage of ongoing programs and do so for the greater good of New York."
