CPBL to allow 2,000 fans per game, open concession stands
Taiwan's professional baseball league -- the first in the world to begin its 2020 season -- will double the current 1,000-fan limit beginning on Friday, 15 May.

The Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) will allow as many as 2,000 fans per game starting with the games scheduled on Friday, 15 May.

Taiwan's top-flight league also announced on Twitter that concession stands will be opened for fans to acquire in-stadium food and beverages. Members of the same family will be allowed to sit together.

CPBL was the first professional league in the world to open the 2020 season. After a rain delay, the opening day was played on 14 April behind closed doors.

CPBL started admitting 1,000 fans in ballparks on 8 May, with those games quickly sold out.

Two games are scheduled on Friday, 15 May:

Rakuten Monkeys vs. Fubon Guardians
Chinatrust Brothers vs. Uni Lions

Both games will start at 6:35 pm local time (GMT+8), which is 6:35 am US Eastern time.
