The Houston Astros is hoping to host fans in a limited capacity in 2021.

Nothing is finalized, but Astros personnel confirmed to KPRC 2 that they will be allowed to have up to 25% capacity. However, that number is subject to change.

The last time fans were allowed at Minute Maid Park was at the 2020 College Classic, Feb. 28-March 1, 2020. Game seven of the 2019 World Series was the last Astros game with fans.

Right now, the Rockets have around 25% capacity at their home games. This has been the case with most teams allowing limited fans, the expectation is that season ticket holders would get priority.

According to MLB, the total capacity of Minute Maid Park is 40,963. 25% of that would be about 10,240 people.
