COVID-19 is forcing the World Series and National League Championship to work a little differently this year.

Rather than going back and forth between stadiums, both series will be held at the brand new Globe Life Field in Arlington, making it the first neutral-site world series in history.



All this is in order to keep players and fans safe so the stadium is cutting down attendance to just 11,500.

These tickets will be on sale for each game, which will fill the stadium at just 28% capacity.

Fans will only have the option of buying seats in groups of four, also known as a pod.

All pods will be at least six feet apart from each other as well as 20 feet from where any player could be located on the field.

Fans will be required to wear face masks at all times except while eating or drinking and hand sanitation stations have been placed throughout the stadium.

Much like the NBA and NHL, players from both teams will be forced into a "bubble" for the post-season, in an effort to minimize potential exposure to the virus.
