How to buy 2020 World Series tickets, travel, lodging | Tampa Bay Rays win American League pennant

The Tampa Bay Rays punched their ticket to the 2020 World Series on Wednesday, and their fans can follow them to Arlington, Texas.

MLB is allowing fans to attend the 2020 World Series at Globe Life Park after doing so during the National League Championship Series in the same venue.

Fans interested in attending can buy tickets to the games at TicketSmarter or StubHub and book travel to Arlington via Trip Advisor, Expedia or Priceline, and lodging via Hotels.com or Choice Hotels.

MLB is allowing 11,500 fans into the stands at Globe Life Park — about 28% of its total capacity.

Tickets will be sold in “pods” of four contiguous seats, with each pod distanced by at least 6 feet and placed in a checkerboard pattern, with alternating rows of seats in the middle or rows and at the ends, according to ESPN. Unsold seats will be tied back.

Other than while they are eating or drinking at their ticketed seats, fans will be mandated to wear masks.

The decision to play in Arlington — a result of the coronavirus pandemic — marks the first time in history the World Series will be played on a neutral field.

The Rays advanced by defeating the Astros in the American League Championship Series in seven games. It is the second World Series appearance in Rays franchise history.
