The Kansas City Royals will offer season ticket members a chance to purchase cutouts of themself to be placed in Kauffman Stadium in 2020.

With the return of fans in question at pro sporting events in 2020, the Kansas City Royals are giving all season ticket members a chance to be at every home game.

The Kansas City Royals announced the Fanbassador program on Wednesday where season ticket members will be offered the chance to order a hard-plastic cutout of their likeness that will be displayed in a seat at Kauffman Stadium during the 2020 season.

Initially, up to 500 “Fanbassador” cutouts will be available. Each cutout can be purchased for $40. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Royals Respond Fund, a Royals Charities effort that supports Kansas City area nonprofits who focus on food insecurity as it relates to the coronavirus pandemic.

The items will be placed in locations around the ballpark so fans and their families may be able to see the cutout of themselves while watching the game on TV. The cutouts will remain in the ballpark throughout the 2020 season.
