Full capacity means over 18,000 fans will be able to fill the seats in Vivint’s lower bowl, upper bowl, and suites.

The Jazz will host either the Dallas Mavericks or the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Semifinals. The Mavericks lead that series 3-2. If they close it out on Friday, the Jazz will host Dallas on Sunday at 1:30 on ABC4. If the Clippers force a Game 7 Sunday, the winner would take on Utah Tuesday night at Vivint Arena.

This is the first time the Jazz have advanced to the second round of the playoffs since 2018.

Some lower bowl rows will remain unavailable to maintain the NBA-required distance around the player bench area. Additional space is now available in the standing room only sections and a limited number of courtside seats are also available, but require proof of full vaccination and a negative rapid COVID-19 test result.

Other health and safety protocols remain in place, including the requirement to wear masks throughout the building when not eating or drinking while seated in the bowl or in designated for and beverage areas.

The Jazz saw their largest home crowd on Wednesday when they cruised past the Memphis Grizzlies during Game 5 in Salt Lake City with 14,250 fans. Vivint Arena’s official seating capacity is 18,306 for basketball games.

Doors open for home games at Vivint Arena two hours prior to tipoff, and fans are encouraged to arrive early. A pre-game party on the northeast corner of the plaza features several entertainment activations, including a pop-up Utah Jazz Team Store tent, beer garden, concessions, music and a live broadcast set.

Vivint Arena uses contactless entry with digital tickets and cashless transactions for concessions and merchandise. A “no bag” policy is in effect to expedite entry and reduce screening touchpoints. The only exceptions are diaper and medical bags that will be X-rayed and cannot be larger than 14 x 14 x 6 inches.
