The Potomac Nationals (High A; Carolina League) are receiving strong support for their upcoming Fredericksburg, VA move, as they have secured more than 1,000 season ticket reservations. By joining the Founders Club, fans with reservations lock in the ability to be the first to select their season tickets at the team’s new ballpark that is slated to open in 2020.
Since season ticket sales kicked off at a December 1st event, fans have shown support by signing up for the Founders Club and reserving their season tickets. Yesterday, the 1,000th seat reservation milestone was reached. This represents approximately 70,000 individual ticket sales that will fill 20 percent of the stadium seating bowl capacity.
Art Silber, who owns the ball club along with his daughter Lani Weiss and son Seth, said “the entire community has us taking a deep breath of incredible appreciation for the meaningful welcome that has been extended to baseball in Fredericksburg. The response to season ticket availability for the 2020 season is unprecedented and the response from the business and nonprofit community to joint partnerships on a long-term basis is equally impressive. The efforts of the City staff and their dedication to the project as well as the Mayor and an incredible City Council have all come together to ultimately create a unique and extraordinary vehicle for entertainment in various forms. We will shortly start taking reservations for partial season ticket plans with the ultimate goal of having a sell out for all 70 home games.”
Plans for the new Fredericksburg ballpark were approved by the city in November, clearing the way for the P-Nats to relocate as early as 2020. The team will spend at least one more season at Northwest Federal Field at Pfitzner Stadium, its long-time home in Woodbridge, VA.
