You'd better get vaccinated if you plan to see any sports action in Seattle. Just like at Live Nation concerts and events, the Seahawks, Mariners, Kraken, Sounders, the University of Washington, and Washington State will all require fans attending events to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination.

The mandate applies to all events at Climate Pledge Arena, T-Mobile Park, Lumen Field, Gesa Field, and Husky Stadium. Fans showing negative Covid-19 test results taken within 72 hours before games will also be accepted.

The policies are in effect for people 12-years and older. Children under 12 will not need to show proof of vaccination, however, will be required to wear a face mask.

And, for those of you who purchased Seahawks season tickets and want a refund because you aren't vaccinated, think again. That's NOT happening. The same deal for individual games. According to a statement from the Seahawks:

“By creating these options and safety measures, season ticket deferrals or refunds will not be available,” the Seahawks said. “If you cannot meet these requirements, available options include transferring, reselling, or donating your tickets through Seahawks Account Manager. If you would like to discuss further please contact your Account Representative or CustomerService@Seahawks.com."

Seahawks fans can show their original vaccination card or a digital or photo version of the official vaccination card with their name and dates of doses. Also, negative Covid-19 test results will be needed at a checkpoint before heading into Lumen Field's gates for ticket holders.

The Sounders' and Seahawks vaccination policy goes into effect on Sunday, September 19th. The Mariners will require proof of vaccination at potential postseason games. As of Tuesday, masks are required for all people attending events at T-Mobile Park.

The Kraken’s first home game will be on October 23rd, however, the vaccination policy will be in effect at their preseason games in Spokane on September 26th, Everett on October 1st, and Kent on October 2nd.

Tri-City Americans Who Played in the NHL

Hockey is one of the hardest sports to play. Most hockey players will play the sport their entire lives, starting to skate as soon as they can walk. Even with all that dedication, the likelihood a player cracks an NHL roster is astronomically low. The WHL is a high-tier developmental league that sees many of its players make it to the show. But for a player who makes it to the WHL or any other junior league, the chances of them reaching the NHL is still only 5%. These former Tri-City Americans are those elite few who have made the jump.
