  • Impossible to get tickets from general public sale

    I don't know if anyone else had any luck but thanks to Ticketmaster's incompetence, it is virtually impossible to access their website and purchase tickets.

    You had to be quick, I was in there at 10 am with 3 browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera) and managed to snag 8 red sox tickets and 2 mets. Final game and home opener were longggggg gone.

    So I got some seats, but they're all nosebleeds in tier 35, 33 and 29

      You can get Bleacher seats for under 10 dollars to most games right now on StubHub. That's pretty good as far as just getting to the game is concerned..

        Look again, buyers pay 10% + shipping. So that pair of $10 tickets is $11 x 2 plus $13 Fedex = $35, or just over $17 per ticket. Not so great for the absolute worst seats in the house in the middle of April. You just about get strip-searched before they let you in those bleachers, the halls and concession stands are dark, cramped, and filthy, the LOUD dumpster truck empties every half inning, the cops hassle you left and right, the benches are hard and small, and you can't see squat!!

        Good riddance Yankee Stadium bleachers, we won't miss you!!!!

            You forgot to mention that the Yankees restrict fans with bleacher tickets to the bleachers seating area only (access to Monument Park or other areas of the Stadium is not permitted)!!!!!

            I didn't do too badly with Ticketmaster... I got a single in Tier Reserved MVP section 1, row T for one Saturday afternoon game, and a single in Tier Reserved MVP section 2, row S for another. The problem is that you don't have the option of choosing the less expensive Tier Reserved (non-MVP) sections further out. What I'd really like is to have the ability to have the computer search for specific rows and seats. They can do it at the advance ticket window, why can't we do it online?

            Getting back to the Stub Hub and the Yankees' policy of restricting the movements of fans in the bleachers - with asking prices for bleacher tickets to the final regular season home game ranging from $219.75 to as much as $1,500 on Stub Hub (no fooling - see for yourself, click here and here), let's hope anyone so desperate to be at that game that they're willing to spend that kind of money for bleacher seats at least knows what they're getting into!!!!!

              ummm no, what you just said is completely and utterly false
              you do NOT get even patted down going into the bleachers!
              you're NOTHING but a hater.

              i just bought 4 bleacher tickets to May 4th's 1:00 game vs Seattle for 33 dollar INCLUDING all fees and shipping. If that's too expensive for anyone, they don't belong trying to buy MLB tickets

                Just purchased a ticket today from Ticketmaster.

                Seems like only single seats were available for all of the dates I checked out, including games against KC and Tampa Bay. The most common seat available for the games I checked was a single seat behind home plate for $325.00 (before tax & fees).

                There was, however, a single upper deck seat available against the Mets for Saturday in May for $45.00 (before tax & fees), just that the time was to be determined and I did not want to go to a night game.

                Ended up with this:
                ------------------------------------------
                You purchased 1 ticket to:

                New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
                Yankee Stadium, Bronx, NY
                Sat, Aug 30, 2008 01:05 PM

                Seat location: section BX 7, row H, seat 9
                Total Charge: US $ 333.65

                Thanks again for purchasing tickets.
                -----------------------------------------
                It's Labor Day Weekend and it was for a day game against a contender.

                But three bills for one seat AND I have to go without my buddies (no two or three seats together for ANY game I checked out for the year)

                I gotta figure the Yanks will set an all-time attendance record this year (4.7MM perhaps?) just based on lack of seat availability one month before opening day.

                  Single Ticket Games

                  I didn't do too bad. I got two tickets which are:

                  New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles
                  9/19 Box 640 for $56

                  New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox
                  4/17 Tier MVP 8 for $40

                  I'm cool with that in addition to the Flexi-plan.

                    Good grab on those tickets, mind sharing where you bought them? (I avoid StubHub because of that 10% fee and $13 Fed Ex charge)

                    I sort of resent your comment about being a hater, because believe me you don't forget getting frisked at a ball game, which they did last time I had bleacher tickets for a Red Sox game last year - and yes they were doing it to everyone.

                    Do share your experience after the game amigo.

                      Single Ticket Games

                      Sure. I got both on Ticketmaster. The Boston/Yanks game I got on 2/29 and the Baltimore/Yanks game I got on 3/1. I got a pair of bleacher tickets Section 55 Subway Series for 5/17 on Stubhub early last week for $120 total.

                        That would be pretty amazing, but I would be shocked if they managed to sell out all 57,545 tickets for 81 games (4.66MM). I do think it'll be some sort of all-time attendance record considering people from across the country (and world?) will want to take in a game at the house that Ruth built before the wrecking ball comes in

                          I've purchased two tickets through ticketmaster. I haven't received the second email with the PDF ticket print attachments. Is anyone having the same issue?

                            They're delaying all ticket deliveries until most of the tickets are sold out to all the premium games. After that they check names and addresses for the 4 and 12 ticket limit and mail/email out the tickets. I'm thinking I'll get my tickets in a couple weeks, after that I'm calling to complain since they already charged my credit card and haven't delivered the goods
