"We look forward to continuing last year's success in providing our guests with peanut allergies the opportunity to watch Royals baseball in a peanut-friendly environment," said Anthony Mozzicato, Director of Guest Experience. "This initiative was a wonderful experience for our guests last season and we are excited to offer more game opportunities in 2015 as the demand continues to grow."  

For tickets, guests may call the Royals Ticket Services Department at (816) 504-4040, option 3, or email ticketservices@royals.com. Tickets are reserved for individuals with peanut allergies and their families.

All persons seated in the Peanut Friendly Suite will be required to sign a waiver before entering Kauffman Stadium. Individuals under the age of 18 also must have the waiver signed by their parent or other legal guardian. Please note that the Royals reserve the right to request a doctor's note verifying the allergy. 

For more information, members of the media may contact the Royals Publicity Department at (816) 921-8000.

Please note: Peanut friendly does not mean peanut free. Peanuts will be present in other areas throughout the ballpark. The Royals play in a venue where wind and other conditions outside of their control may impact the peanut friendly suite. While reasonable efforts will be made, including posting signs outside the peanut friendly suite to restrict peanut products in direct neighboring areas and performing additional cleaning in advance, we cannot guarantee the absence of peanut particles and residue from either. Guests with peanut allergies should take all precautions that they customarily take in public places with potential exposure.
