    Not true... Promenade Outfield (sections 532-538) doesn't appear anywhere on the list. So, presumably, fans holding tickets for those sections are not welcome... unless they sprung for the $972 season tickets.

    I know what you mean, but for obvious reasons I've got mixed feelings about it. It's like, now that I've joined the STH fraternity they decided to change the rules regarding access.

    Forgive me if this has been asked and/or answered already, but what happened to the Ebbets Club?

    It was renamed the Champions Club. IIRC, that happened following the first season.

    Gary your right.
    Probably 2,000 seats in promenade outfield
    So those single game fans will not be allowed to the club areaa
    I get a sense of $5 weekday tickets in Promenade Reserve.
    Maybe $10 for Weekend games(Friday-Sunday)

    At that price they are underselling ST's who are promised price protection. I guess if they price 536-538 at that level they can justify it.

    The price protection applies to section and row, so FST's in 532-538 might only be offered in certain rows (1-10 maybe) and that would allow them to discount rows 11 and up.

    I remember how STHs in the Prom Reserved sections appreciated this notification back in October. Finally, they were getting some recognition - as many have been saying since Day 1 of Citi Field, their stature as full season ticket holders should include Promenade Club and Caesars Club access! People also wondered how this would be indicated on the cardstock, and what if you exchanged your tickets, how would they indicate the access on the reprints? And would StubHub buyers notice the extra club access from season tickets being posted up versus other ones?

    Well, you do have Promenade, Caesars and Acela Club access starting in 2012. Because everybody in the park does!

    Check it out: the current Citi Field Club Access Chart

    In my opinion this is a good thing - those clubs should always have been open to all from the get-go. But don't feel like you're not appreciated - as STHs, you have priority reservations at the Acela Club!

    Doug's right.

    I said from the get-go the whole "club experience/economic stratification" model they built the place around was a mistake. Of course from the fans' perspective it represented nothing more than higher ticket prices just to access costlier concession areas. From ownership's perspective they were squandering valuable prime seating space for concession areas they were choking off customer flow to.

    It was stupid and crazy. This change was inevitable, but is only a partial fix.

    Problem is the space is still wasted. I've no doubt that the clubs will eventually be yanked/greatly reduced and replaced with more seating. Because of expense it'll be a while before that happens, though.

    Good - those "private" clubs should always have been been open to paying customers. It's obvious the Mets expect far fewer of those this year after the disastrous, franchise-killing Reyes decision (with Wright to follow) and horrendous off-season, so they need every perk they can get. I don't think they're exactly being philanthropic here. The place will be empty. But it's good to break down those ridiculous class barriers in a baseball stadium.

    I never understood the allure to clubs. . Why would I want to pay more for seats that have access to clubs that charge stupid money for concessions. I'm there to see a game..Guess I'm in the minority...

    I fully agree with this post. The "clubs" do nothing more than create class (and income) separation. Nothing at Citi indicates this more than the 300 sections, where one must literally go up to the 400/500 sections only for it to be necessary to take an elevator down to the 300s due to the Acela Club being in the way of easy access.

    Count me in on that sentiment as well.

    They should have built the Acela Club with a by-pass on far side, so that you did not need to go up / down to get from LF Landing to the rest of the Excelsior. However, even if they put that by-pass in, w/o an "Caesar's" Club level ticket, you couldn't get past the glass doors anyway. Now, anyone can pass, so this shortcoming stands out.

    Every now and then, First Class is nice.... I can't justify spending for it every day, nor could I afford to, but on those special occasions, it's nice.

    Cheers!

    We'd have to take this over into the CitiField Thread, proper, to discuss feasibility of removing clubs for more seating. Without getting into too many details here, I can tell you that the amount of seating taken by the clubs is minimal at best. Club space is far back from the field.

    Cheers!

    Since the highlight of the upcoming season may only be the 50th anniversary promotions and of course, ballpark food...just curious, since
    Champions Club will now be restricted to Champions season ticket holders, are they going to move the 18 dollar all u can eat buffet elsewhere?
    It was definitely the best value in the park last year. Now Champions will have all-inclusive food/drink, but again, it's only for Champions
    seat holders (no one else gets in, not even Delta tix holders). Hoping some of those tix find their way onto Stub Hub so I can try it
    out if the price is right...also, any other new concessions on the way to Citi?

    Has a "promotions schedule" for the 2012 season come out yet?

    for what they charge for admission (st or individual games) those "private" accommodations are par for the course in professional sports these days. you pay a lot, you want something special - exclusivity. "class barriers" are really "you get what you pay for"
    and as long as the financial stakes continue it's upward spiral (player costs, owner profits) those barriers will remain.

    Have any fellow plan holders here received any password yet for next week's single game ticket pre-sale? I'm not asking what it is, I'm just wondering if the Mets ticket office has told anyone yet.

    We all know the password is going to be a players name for sure... or maybe even "CHAMPIONS" this year.. (haha yeah right)..

    Still waiting on these Perks drawings... So much for this deadline in November... We are going on March...

    Aside from Opening Day and Subway Series... What will be the top 3 games in demand this year?? I can't picture Banner Day selling out..

  19. #1939
    I think the password was REYES last year. I think we can scrap that one!

    Three possibilities, in chronological order...

    • Tuesday, April 24 v. Miami, 7.10pm - Jose Reyes' first game in NY as a Florida Marlin
    • Sunday, June 3 v. St. Louis, 1.10pm - John Franco inducted into the Mets' Hall of Fame
    • Sunday, August 26 v. Houston, 1.10pm - the Mets' final game against the National League Houston Astros - the final meeting between the two 1962 National League expansion clubs as National League clubs - whether Houston will play the Mets as an American League club during interleague play has yet to be determined (don't laugh - the Chicago White Sox have never played an interleague game in New York)
