The Staten Island Yankees are committed to making positive changes this season at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, first with their new Autism Suites and then with their Made In America promotional campaign and now with lowering their advance sales ticket prices for the 2017 season.
For the 2017 season, the Baby Bombers will be offering their infield reserved seats, in sections 3-14, at an advanced rate of $16 per ticket which is down from the $18 per ticket price they were last season. Reserved seats in sections 1,2, 15 and 16 will also drop $2 for a new advance sales price of $12. Day-of-game sales for infield reserved seats will remain at $18 and $14 for reserved seats.
In addition, Staten Island announced that they would be switching ticketing systems from Ticketmaster to Ticket Return. With the move, fans will save 40% in online ticket fees and have an easier ticket-purchasing experience.
“Our goal is to create affordable, family fun for everyone on Staten Island and in the surrounding area,” said Staten Island Yankees Vice President of Ticket Sales T.J. Jahn in a press release issued by the team, “We made a concerted effort this offseason in making a Staten Island Yankees game the best value possible. Looking at past seasons, the greatest numbers of fans purchased tickets in advance in our infield reserved sections. We are proud to offer a lower priced advance ticket to the best and most popular seats in the ballpark as well as being able to cut ticketing fees nearly in half because of our new partnership with TicketReturn.”
The Staten Island Yankees also announced that they would continue to offer senior (65 years or older) and military members $10 discounted ticket when purchasing in person at the ticket office at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark beside the crb direct, at St. George with proper proof of identification.
The lower ticket prices bring the Yankees advance sales cost below their crosstown rival Brooklyn Cyclones who charge $17 for individual advance tickets and $19 on gameday as well as limited $14 seats.
