Major League Wrestling (MLW) recently announced that it’s hosting its first show since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic where it’s welcoming back fans. This show is taking place on July 10 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, and I will be among those in attendance for this historic event.
I’ve never been to an MLW event before, but I’ve heard only good things about the promotion. I watched the most recent episode of MLW Fusion, and it was highly enjoyable. I’m also a huge fan of the 2300 Arena (i.e., the ECW Arena), so it will be a pleasure to attend a wrestling event in this iconic venue after such a long hiatus. Below is the full announcement from MLW about how COVID-19 protocols will be followed for this show.

The health and wellbeing of fans, the athletes, staff, and crew are of the utmost importance to MLW and the 2300 Arena.
The 2300 Arena is following city and state guidelines for the latest capacity requirements and safety standards.
The 2300 Arena recently replaced all its filters in their air system to HEPA grade. They also added UV lights inside their HVAC system.
Hand sanitizing stations will be available for patrons throughout the arena.
All seating will be socially distanced for safety, allowing fans to sit with their party but following CDC recommendations regarding other attendees and spacing.
There will be a covid compliance officer on site for the 2300 Arena as well as an additional covid compliance officer from Major League Wrestling to ensure all protocols are maintained.
Attendees, staff, crew, and athletes will be temperature checked upon entrance and must wear a mask while inside the venue.
