The Kansas City Royals have partnered with Reckitt, the makers of Lysol, to introduce enhanced disinfection protocols at Kaufman Stadium for the 2021 season and beyond.
As the Royals organization welcomes fans back to The K, a top priority is establishing enhanced disinfection protocols that can help protect fans, players, and employees. To do this, the Royals will tap into Lysol’s germ-kill expertise and innovation, which will be at the forefront of creating enhanced disinfection measures at the ballpark.
“There can be no shortcut to the disinfection and cleanliness at sporting stadiums,” said E. Yuri Hermida, Executive Vice President of North America Hygiene at Reckitt. “It’s the best way to increase fans’ comfort levels with returning to watch the game and so we’re delighted that the Royals have made this a high priority. We look forward to working with them to welcome back fans to The K.”
Reckitt will supply EPA-approved disinfection products, including those proven to be effective against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, to use across areas where germs are most prevalent. Reckitt’s microbiologists and germ-kill experts have been working with the Royals to determine high-touch spots throughout the ballpark and subsequently, best practices that will help prevent the spread of germs on surfaces for fans, players and staff, so they can focus on enjoying their experience throughout the season. With fans gradually being allowed back into Kauffman, they can expect to see Lysol EPA-approved disinfection products used throughout, behind the scenes and front of house, with wipes being made available to fans as well.
Through this partnership, the Royals are putting their confidence in a science-backed, strategic approach designed with Lysol.
“The health and safety of our players and fans is of utmost priority to us,” said Royals Chief Revenue and Innovation Officer, Sarah Tourville. “We are excited to partner with Lysol, as their expertise and array of disinfecting products will further strengthen our efforts to play baseball at Kauffman Stadium.”
