Another team is adding the Ballpark Pass to its ticket offerings, as the York Revolution (independent; Atlantic League) have announced plans to do so in 2018.
During the 2017 season, ballpark passes became one of the more widespread ticketing options in Major League Baseball. While there were variances among the offers from individual teams, ballpark passes tended to stick to a common set of ideas. For a monthly fee, fans could access all or nearly every game, with the pass available via the MLB Ballpark App.
For 2018, that trend will spread to the independent ranks, as the Revolution have announced a new Ballpark Pass. Revolution pass holders will create a logon they’ll use each day they want to attend one of the Atlantic League champion’s 71 openings in 2018. Through an online process, they can now sign up and pay the first month’s fee of $34.79 using a credit card that will be kept on file and charged for each of the remaining five months of the season. The Ballpark Pass gives subscribers the entire season of Revolution action for $208.74 (including tax) – or just $2.94 a game.
When they log on, pass holders will receive a unique bar code on their smartphones to use at the PeoplesBank Park gates. Once the bar codes are scanned, pass holders will have their choice of any available spot in the ballpark’s three general admission areas – Arch Street Eats, the outfield bench seating in DownTown’s Playground, or the bench seating or lawn space in the Appell Lawn.
“We are very excited to be among the leaders in sports who are pioneering this technology,” said Revolution General Manager John Gibson. “We’ve seen it succeed in Major League markets, and we wanted the passionate fans of our area to benefit from the same kind of convenience and flexibility. The Ballpark Pass really empowers fans to catch as many games as possible as easily as possible for a great price.’
