As previously reported, AEW recently announced that starting their Thursday, August 27th episode of Dynamite a live audience will be back, but the shows will be in compliance with state and local regulations and CDC guidelines for the COVID-19 pandemic.
It was also announced that AEW Dynamite will be running at a 10% – 15% venue capacity from inside Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, Florida, with the August 27th episode of Dynamite at a 10% capacity and shows following August 27th at a 15% capacity.
Tickets will reportedly be sold in groups of two, three, four and six, and the groups will be sat in physically distanced seating pods. AEW President and CEO Tony Khan recently took to Twitter and issued a statement regarding tickets for Dynamite being sold illegally.
Tony Khan revealed that tickets for the August 27th episode of Dynamite, which will run at a 10% capacity, sold out rather quickly, with tickets for the show being sold in groups of two, three, four and six, and the groups will be sat in physically distanced seating pods.
Tony Khan also said that there were reports saying that tickets were sold on the secondary market as well, which eliminates the concept of fans to be with their friends and families and to be safely distanced from other people in the audience. Khan then said that this is an “illegal, unethical and inappropriate move” by sellers. Khan then said that he promised that AEW will handle the situation and called on fans to help with the situation as well.

Thank you to all of the great wrestling fans who support AEW! Here is my full statement regarding the illegal and unethical outdoor seating pod splitting on the secondary ticket resale market, a move by predatory online ticket resellers which won’t work and won’t be tolerated: pic.twitter.com/CTC2ETNviA— Tony Khan (@TonyKhan) August 21, 2020
