COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Columbus Crew plans to open sections for fans who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 starting May 29 at its home game against Toronto FC. 

The Crew announced Thursday four sections on the lower sideline and four sections on the upper sideline will be reserved for fully vaccinated guests at full capacity.

In order for fans to get a seat, they must show two forms of identification: Their photo ID and proof they received the first and second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine no later than two weeks before the game — May 15.

A photo of the vaccination card will also be acceptable. 

If fans fail to show they are vaccinated, they will not be allowed into the section, and there will be no refunds or exchanges. 

On the day of the game, the Crew along with Columbus Public Health will set up a Johnson & Johnson vaccination station from 2:00 p.m. until the end of halftime in front of the Black & Gold gates.

Attendees who wish to receive the vaccine should bring a photo ID and insurance card, if available, for verification purposes.

Getting the vaccine won’t give fans admittance into the fully vaccinated sections. 

The Crew has not announced any plans to lift capacity restrictions starting June 2, the date the state plans to lift most health orders.

Other organizations including the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds announced they will begin allowing fans to attend at full capacity next month.
