Several sporting events in Oklahoma City will be opening up to nearly full capacity within the next few months.

Starting July 1, the Oklahoma City Dodgers plan to extend seating to nearly full capacity for fans. The decision was based on the updated CDC guidelines, rising vaccination rates, and both lower coronavirus infections and hospitalizations. Face masks are strongly encouraged for all guests and socially-distanced sections will be offered for fans who prefer that option.

OKC Energy FC, the city's professional soccer club, says it will open to full capacity for its game on June 12.

The NCAA recently announced it will leave fan capacities for collegiate championships up to local health authorities.

The Women’s College World Series for softball is also expected to be at full capacity in June at its traditional home in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma City-County Health Department reports nearly 40% of residents have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
