All Elite Wrestling has announced that they will allow fans to attend their shows in person at Daly’s Place in Jacksonville. The company will start selling tickets starting from AEW Dynamite tapings of 27 August onwards.

AEW issued a press release announcing that it will host limited, ticketed crowds of 10-15 percent capacity for its live shows at the open-air Daily’s Place amphitheater in Jacksonville, FL. A select number of physically distanced seating pods will be available for sale in groups of two, three, four and six around the outdoor venue.

AEW added that all the arrangements will be in accordance with state and local regulations and CDC guidelines. A maximum of 15% capacity fans will be allowed for all live events going forward as long as safety protocols are followed strictly.

We’ve missed the incredible energy of our fans at shows, and from what we’ve heard from them, they’ve missed being with us. With our enhanced safety measures and outdoor venue, we look forward to welcoming our fans back to become part of the action in-person.
