The pandemic stopped all major arenas from holding events, but fans in New York have a bit of light at the end of this long tunnel.
The New York Post reports that New York will allow indoor arenas to re-open on February 23rd, but there is a catch. All arenas are only allowed to fill 10% of their capacity.
Venues with at least a 10,000-person capacity will be allowed to reopen with a 10 percent capacity limit starting Feb. 23.
Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will be among the first to employ the new model on Feb. 23, when the Nets square off against the Sacramento Kings.
Any fan attending an event must also present a negative COVID-19 test that took place 72 hours from the event. Face masks are also required and all arenas will be set up with social distancing in mind.
Some pro wrestling staples like Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center, Nassau Coliseum, and more will re-open under those new guidelines. As of this writing, no pro wrestling events have been announced, but it might only be a matter of time.
