August 20, 2020 – All Elite Wrestling (AEW) announced it will host limited, ticketed crowds of

10-15 percent capacity for its live shows at the open-air Daily’s Place amphitheater in

Jacksonville, Fla., starting on Thursday, Aug. 27.

To safely bring back the energy of a live audience to AEW’s shows — in compliance with state

and local regulations and CDC guidelines — a select number of physically distanced seating

pods will be available for sale in groups of two, three, four and six around the outdoor venue.

For the first ticketed show on Aug. 27, a maximum crowd of 10 percent capacity will be

permitted. Going forward, as long as safety protocols are followed meticulously, a maximum

crowd of 15 percent capacity will be permitted for all live events at Daily’s Place.

Limited tickets to attend the Aug. 27 DYNAMITE show, airing on TNT, will go on sale tomorrow,

Friday, Aug. 21, at 10 a.m. ET via AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $30 (not

including service charges or fees).

Guests will be required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth, and to physically

distance from any person who is not a member of their pod. Guests will also be asked not to

attend the day of the show if they have COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19 or have had close

contact exposure to someone who they know has COVID-19 or symptoms. In addition, all

guests will have their temperature scanned prior to entry. An increased number of hand

sanitizing stations will be available, and floor markings will also be used to assist with physical

distancing. Industrial fans were also added this past year to further improve air circulation at

the open-air venue.

As a further safeguard, all tickets will be mobile and may only be purchased online at

AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com (no box office sales). Daily’s Place will also transition to

cashless payment and mobile ordering for most transactions, including food and merchandise

purchases.

“We’ve missed the incredible energy of our fans at shows, and from what we’ve heard from

them, they’ve missed being with us. With our enhanced safety measures and outdoor venue,

we look forward to welcoming our fans back to become part of the action in-person,” said Tony

Khan, AEW President and CEO.

“Please be assured, we are mindful and respectful of the situation,“ Khan added. “The health

and safety of our AEW family and our fans remains our highest priority. Our leadership team

and medical staff have adjusted our operations for limited, physically distanced fans in an

outdoor, open-air setting in compliance with the most current state and local regulations and

CDC guidelines. We can’t wait for the August 27 DYNAMITE, as the road to ALL OUT will

represent the beginning of a new chapter in AEW history.“

Note: Due to the NBA‘s schedule on TNT, the Wednesday, Aug. 26, episode of DYNAMITE will

air on Thursday, Aug. 27, at 8pm ET.
