Spring Training has officially kicked off in Arizona with pitchers and catchers reporting to local facilities this week. Although Spring travel to Arizona will not be at pre-pandemic levels, we are pleased to see the Cactus League implement responsible COVID-19 policies that allow for a limited number of fans to attend Spring Training games in person.
The Cactus League Task Force, comprised of Cactus League officials, leaders of spring training host municipalities and the tribal community, finalized the Spring Training Occupancy Plan for the 2021 Cactus League season. The plan was created in consultation with state, county and local health authorities as well as other Valley sports teams and events; it is supported by the Maricopa County Department of Public Health Administration and has been filed with the Arizona Department of Health Services.
The plan is designed to provide the public with accurate, transparent information, and we believe it will promote consumer confidence in the safety and security of Cactus League games. The season opens on Sunday, February 28 and runs through Monday, March 29.
