The LA Dodgers will host their seventh annual LGBTQ Pride night next month at Dodger Stadium with LA Pride.

It will be the third time LA Pride and the Dodgers have teamed up for the event.

The Dodgers will play the Texas Rangers in the June 11 game.

In an effort to accommodate as many fans as possible for the popular event, all tickets available will be located in the fully-vaccinated only sections.

In the fully-vaccinated only sections, social distancing will not be required, and fans will be seated next to other parties.

These sections will be reserved for fully-vaccinated fans, people 16 and older who received their final vaccine dose at least two weeks ago and children between the ages of 2 and 15 who can show proof of having tested negative for COVID-19.

Children under the age of 2 do not need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Face coverings must be worn in the fully vaccinated-only section, except while actively eating and-or drinking in the ticketed section.

  • Photo of a vaccination card as a separate document
  • Photo of the attendee’s vaccination card stored on a phone or electronic device
  • Documentation of vaccination from a healthcare provider
  • For children between 2 and 15 years of age, the following documents are acceptable as proof of a negative COVID-19 test:
  • Printed document from the test provider or laboratory.
  • Email or text message displayed on a phone or electronic device from the test provider or laboratory.
  • The information provided should include the name of the person tested, the type of test performed, and the date of the negative test result
  • For a PCR test, the date of the negative result must be within the prior 72 hours
  • For an antigen test, the date of the negative result must be within the prior 24 hours

The event will include drink specials in the pavilion bars, a special recognition of frontline workers from Los Angeles’ LGBTQ community, and additional surprise guests during pregame ceremonies.

A special event ticket package includes a ticket to the game and an exclusive Dodgers LGBTQ themed T-shirt. Tickets range from $50 to $225, excluding service fees.
