The Utah Jazz announced that fan attendance allowed inside of Vivint Smart Home Arena would increase to 5,600 beginning on March 12, 2021. The last change made by the Jazz regarding fan attendance came on February 1, increasing fan attendance to 3,902.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, fan attendance in the NBA has varied throughout the 2020-2021 season. Utah was one of only a few teams to begin the year with limited fan attendance, beginning with 1,500, then moving to 3,902, and now 5,600 socially distanced fans can be in attendance for home games.
This is great news for Jazz fans, not only for the ability to attend games, but also because this pandemic is taking a turn for the better. The 18,306 seat Arena will be just under 31% capacity with the new socially distanced seating options, and there is a chance that more fans can be in attendance by the end of the season.
According to the "Return to the Arena" page on the Utah Jazz official website, fans in attendance must still pass a health screening before entering the arena, wear a mask, sit 6-feet apart, and use digital tickets. Purses and bags will not be allowed inside the arena.
