The health and safety of fans and the Surprise community are the city’s top priority.

You will notice that we have taken additional steps to protect your safety, including a limited seating capacity of only 2,200 fans per game; physically distanced seating pods; reduced touch points; contactless ticketing; cashless transactions; and new intensified cleaning protocols.
