In a press release, United also said they will be encouraging individuals attending the games to wear masks while walking the concourse of Isotopes Park. “Our goals are twofold: to create the most intimidating atmosphere in the USL Championship, and to keep New Mexicans safe,” said New Mexico United Owner/President Peter Trevisani. “We must do our part to keep our communities healthy.”
NM United, along with their partner Western Sky Community Care, will also be offering COVID-19 tests before people enter the park. COVID-19 vaccinations will also be available at select tailgate events. Officials say capacity restrictions will be reevaluated as COVID statistics in the state change.
