The Altoona Curve open their season in two months — on May 4 — and as of now they will be allowed to have 2,000 fans for games at Peoples Natural Gas Field, in accordance to new guidelines set forth today by Gov. Tom Wolf.

The governor released the guidelines this morning.

PNG Field has a capacity to hold 10,000 fans, so at 20 percent, the Curve can and will be planning for 2,000 people. For now, at least.

“We are planning on the 20 percent for now, with hopes it is further increased in May,” Curve general manager Derek Martin said.

There would seem to be a good possibility that Wolf’s 20 percent capacity number will increase as the summer approaches, and if it does, the Curve would be ready to welcome more fans.

PNG Field is very spacious for a minor league venue and has a large concourse, which will help with regards to social distancing possibilities for fans.

“We will be coming out in the next several days with our 20 percent plan,” Martin said.
