COVID-19 UPDATES | UPDATED 6/23/20
From Dan Corbin, General Manager
The Waterloo Bucks are pleased to announce that the 2020 season will begin on Wednesday, July 1st. Due to the delayed start of the 2020 season, the Northwoods League created a new schedule. This new schedule is currently available now! In conjunction with the City of Waterloo and the Northwoods League, the Waterloo Bucks cannot wait to begin welcoming fans for our NEW Opening Day, Thursday, July 2nd.
This situation is new to everyone and we have questions just like you all do. Here are a few key things fans have been asking that we do have the answers to:
WHAT IS THE PLAN?
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have been meeting regularly to discuss the cleaning process and what needs to be prioritized during these times.
This season, we will be extending staff training to include the proper instruction to exceed the standards set by Public Health and make sure our standards are clear and met every single day. All of our employees will be wearing face masks and sanitizing regularly.

Things to Know
ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT PACKAGES | Our private group areas will be offering all-you-can-drink packages at all games! We are not able to provide buffet-style service because of COVID-19 regulations this season.

BEER | All beer in the stadium will be in cans. No draft beer.
FACE MASKS | All fans are highly encouraged to wear masks whenever possible while inside Riverfront Stadium. There will be masks available for purchase at the guest services booth just inside the front entrance. Masks are recommended whenever fans are not in their seats while at the game.
FIRST BASE GATE | Fans who already hold a ticket, such as Season Ticket Holders, advanced purchases, and will call tickets, should enter the stadium through the first base gate. This will reduce the length of lines at the main gate where people are purchasing tickets and will also allow social distancing to be easier.
GATE OPENING TIMES | Starting this season, the gates will be opening 35 minutes before the scheduled first-pitch time.
12:05 GAME TIME = 11:30 GATES OPEN
2:05 GAME TIME = 1:30 GATES OPEN
6:35 GAME TIME = 6:00 GATES OPEN
GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS | As stated above, all tickets outside of the private group areas and Box Seats will be general admission. We will have seats and rows marked off that are not available for sitting in throughout the stadium, in order to comply with social distancing regulations. Thank you for understanding!
ON-FIELD PROMOTIONS | In an effort to keep our fans and staff as safe as possible, we will not be inviting children on the field for in-game promotions. We will still have a lot of fun activities throughout the game that involve interacting with the scoreboard, guessing games, and more!
WILL CALL TABLE | The Will Call table will be located just in front of the First Base Gate at the stadium. Please report there to pick up any tickets that should be in Will Call. There will be NO Will Call tickets at the main gate this season.
This is the best place to stay up to date on all things related to 2020 Opening Day, action plans, ticket policies, and more. We will be keeping this page updated as more information comes our way. Thanks again for sticking with us and supporting the home team. We cannot wait for the 2020 season to begin!
The City of Waterloo worked with our front office to create our COVID-19 Readiness Plan, posted above. Please look over the entire thing to see all of the measures we have taken to keep our fans, staff, players, and umpires safe this season.
