A change is coming to next month’s Royals FanFest at Bartle Hall.

On Friday, the Royals announced that there will be a time-best entry for FanFest. A search on the Royals’ website showed that tickets are being sold for the start of each hour.

The FanFest hours are noon to 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 29, and 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, but the first two hours of each day are open only to season-ticket holders.

In a news release, the Royals said “inventory is limited for each entry time, so fans are encouraged to buy early to secure the date and time of their choice. Fans will not be able to enter the convention until their slotted time.”

Two-day passes are being sold, and fans can enter at any time during the general public hours.

Once inside, fans are allowed to stay as long as they wish.

The Royals said any public tickets purchased before Friday are allowed entry at any time during general public hours. For more information, please click or tap here.
