Essentials for Attending a 2021 St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Game

The return of baseball in 2021 brings lots of changes. While we can’t wait to get back to Busch Stadium, there are several essential items you need to be aware of to make sure you don’t get turned away at the gate and have a good game day experience.

No Bags

To reduce contamination and ensure touchless entry, bags will not be permitted to be brought in to Busch Stadium, except for medical or diaper bags with a child. Prohibition includes any backpack, fanny pack, grocery bag, purse, clutch, wristlet or other small bags.

Wear a Mask

Masks are required and are to be worn over the nose and mouth at all times in all areas of the stadium, including the seating bowl, unless guests are actively eating and drinking. Only standard masks will be allowed; neck gaiters, bandanas, masks with valves or holes, and facial shields without mask will not be permitted.

No Cash Transactions

Concession stands, kiosks and other retail transactions made in the stadium will be cashless and only offer credit and debit payment options. Debit cards will be available for purchase* using cash with no service fees at a limited number of locations inside the stadium.
