Louisville City gets green light to play in front of fans at new stadium

Louisville City, whose opening of its new stadium has been delayed for three months, will get to welcome fans at Lynn Family Stadium when the USL Championship resumes.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s office has approved a plan to allow up to 50 percent capacity at Lynn Family Stadium which can accommodate as many as 15,304 fans.

LouCity’s ticket operations staff will reconfigure seating locations for season-ticket holders to account for physical distancing and reduced capacity at the Butchertown venue. If individual tickets are available, the club will make an announcement at a later date.

“We have waited a long time for the first match in Lynn Family Stadium," said Mitch Ried, LouCity’s vice president of sales and marketing. "and we are excited that we will be able to have our biggest fans in attendance."

Stadium operator ASM Global, the venue and event management company that operates the $65 million stadium for LouCity, has devised protocols for fans attending events. Initiatives for safe concession operations have been devised by the facility’s food and beverage partner, Levy Restaurants.

The USL Championship and the USL Players Association announced an agreement last week on a return to play this season with a target restart date of July 11.
