In a press release on Monday, the Quad Cities River Bandits announced fans will be able to purchase individual game tickets soon. In the press release, officials said they are excited to welcome the community back to Modern Woodmen Park and to welcome their new affiliate, the Kansas City Royals.

Opening Day for the River Bandits is Tuesday, May 11th at 6:30 p.m. against the Cedar Rapids Kernels. The 2021season concludes on Sunday, September 19th against the South Bend Cubs.

Individual game tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 30th at 10:00 a.m. Tickets can be purchased online, calling the River Bandits box office at 563-333-2737, or at the ticket window during normal business hours. Officials say that all fans holding 2020 tickets and/or vouchers may exchange them for any 2021 game (based on availability) or a new set of vouchers at the River Bandits box office.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, officials for the River Bandits want fans to know about a couple of changes that will be in place for the 2021 season only. The River Bandits plan to open at normal capacity and are going to employ social distancing. Officials are asking everyone to wear masks or face coverings while inside Modern Woodmen Park.

Per MLB restrictions, the River Bandits are not permitted to sell seats in the first few rows. In order to accommodate for social distancing, some ticket plan holders’ seats may be moved for this season, but will be able to return to their original seat for the 2022 season.

Back in February, the River Bandits announced their 2021 schedule. They will play 6-game series all season long with each series starting on Tuesday and ending on Sunday. All Tuesday through Saturday games will have a 6:30 p.m. start time. All Sunday games will have a 1:00 p.m. start time. The only games with different than normal start times will be July 3rd (6:00 pm), and July 4th (6:00 p.m.).

Gates will open for each game 45 minutes before first pitch.

The River Bandit will have a packed  promotional schedule for their 2021 season. The full promotional schedule will be released later this week.
