2020 Playoffs coming to Petco Park

Petco Park will be one of the neutral site venues for MLB playoffs in October. San Diego will be the host city for an American League series. Read about drive-in playoff experiences at Petco.

The San Diego Padres will not play in these games. This is part of a plan to isolate players during the playoffs to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.

Playoffs will also be played at Los Angeles Dodgers stadium, and for the National League playoffs, Houston and Arlington, Texas. The World Series in this unprecedented season will be held at the Rangers stadium in Arlington, Texas, while the coronavirus pandemic ravages on unchecked.

The American League Division Series (ALDS) at Petco Park will run October 6-10*, 2020. (*If necessary, best of five format). The American League Championship Series will then be held at Petco Park, October 11-17 (best of seven format).

The 2020 World Series is schedule to begin October 20, pending the will of storms, fires, social riots, famine, earthquakes, Bill Barr, etc.

Will there be fans at the 2020 baseball playoffs and World Series? This is still under consideration due to the coronavirus. Fans were not able to attend regular season games but solutions are being considered for the postseason to provide very limited attendance that ensures safety during the active spread of the devastating virus. Regardless of your political beliefs, please wear your mask so San Diego schools can stay open!
