ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Blues have announced that there could be up to a few hundred fans allowed inside Enterprise Center at all January home games. Most of them will likely be local frontline workers.
Enterprise Center will host a limited number of invited frontline workers, along with the families and friends of players, hockey staff, team employees and essential personnel, when the Blues open their first homestand on Monday, Jan. 18 against the San Jose Sharks. The special invites will go to healthcare professionals and first responders in the area.
"It's good news for everyone that Blues hockey is back home at Enterprise Center," said Blues President of Business Operations/CEO Chris Zimmerman. "We are proud to welcome this group of local heroes as our guests to the arena as a way to express our admiration and appreciation for their selfless work to keep the St. Louis area healthy and safe."
The Blues continue to call upon the expertise and guidance of health and safety officials from the City of St. Louis to determine the best path forward to welcome guests back to Enterprise Center, with small groups of fewer than 300 people being identified as the safest and most responsible way to start the season.
Fans will be able to make their presence known at Enterprise Center to celebrate the start of the season with the Fan Cutout program. The program, announced today, allows fans to purchase a cardboard cutout of themselves, family members or pets, which will be placed in the stands of the arena during the season. A portion of all cutout sales will benefit Blues for Kids.
