The New York Yankees are charging a quarter for bleacher seats and. $1.10 for a grandstand seat for the first exhibition games at the new Yankee Stadium, in a move designed to bring back memories of the opening of the original Yankee Stadium in 1923. In addition, the April 3-4 games against the Chicago Cubs will free to season-ticket holders.
"To express our gratitude toward our full-season ticket licensees, we are offering tickets for these two exhibition games at no cost to them," said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. "The balance of tickets will be sold first to our partial-plan holders, then to the general public, at vastly reduced rates compared to the regular season. Using such a pricing model for these games allows us to thank our fans for their continued loyalty and introduce them to baseball’s new grand cathedral."
Before you queue up for your quarter tickets, there’s a catch: they will be offered first to season-ticket holders, followed by partial season-ticket holders. If any tickets are left, they will then be offered to the general public. In addition, the number of tickets available at this pricing is limited. The better seats in the house will be priced as follows: Tickets on the Terrace Level will cost between $20-35, tickets on the Main Level will be $20-45, and tickets on the Field Level will range from $45-$50.
