TICKETMASTER

Book with TicketMaster

TicketMaster is the Yankees’ official ticket marketplace for the 2019 season and often offers the cheapest tickets price. Just search “Yankees” on the site and you’ll receive a list of upcoming games. You do not automatically see the starting ticket prices through your search, so it is a bit difficult to immediately gauge what games would be in your price range. However, let’s take a look at a June 21 game, Yankees versus the Houston Astros. The prices range from $17 and go up to $385, depending on where you’d like to sit. To choose your ticket, you click on the section of the stadium you’d like to sit in on a map, or you can use a search feature to sort the available tickets by either price or location. The map zooms in and shows you individual seats, so you can further personalize your experience, based on whether you prefer aisle seats, middle seats, etc.

Let’s say you’re going to buy one seat above the visitors bullpen. The price for just the ticket is $37. Fees include a service fee of roughly 15 percent and an order processing fee of $3.30, for a total price of $46.10. The order processing fee is always $3.30, regardless of the cost of your ticket. You can choose to receive your tickets via mail (with added postage costs), at will call or via the mobile app.

Stubhub is the official MLB fan-to-fan ticket marketplace. On the site, you can easily search through upcoming Yankees game tickets, for game tickets both at home in New York City and away at opposing teams’ stadiums, to find the game you’d like to attend. Starting ticket prices are listed beside each game, so you know what type of price range to expect. Generally, mid-week games are more affordable, while weekend games and playoffs tickets are more expensive.

Let’s look at the same Yankees vs. Astros game we just looked at with TicketMaster. Stubhub overall has more tickets available, but for a higher price. A seat in the same section will be $46 before any fees are added. When you pick your seat, Stubhub nicely gives you an example of the view you can expect from that seat, and explains the seat features and ticket disclosures. When we get to the fees, we can see a service fee of 24 percent and a $2 fulfillment fee (which is always the same regardless of your ticket cost), making the ticket $59.04. Additional ticket purchase protection is available that gives you 24-hour access to a help line and a refund in case you can’t attend an event due to illness, job loss or travel accidents. So, generally then, you can expect Stubhub to have more tickets available, but the overall cost is more expensive than what you’d find with TicketMaster.

If you’re looking for season or group tickets for groups of more than 10 people, those are only available via the Yankees ticket office directly. The Yankees offer various different ticket license plans, which come with your preferred seat for all designated games, as well as a range of amenities. You can purchase a full season of tickets, or a partial season. Partial season tickets allow you to access nine, 12, 16, 20 or 41 games (a full season is 81 games). Furthermore, if you upgrade your season tickets to Yankees Premium, you’ll receive access to the Legends Suite, Champions Suite, Delta SKY360 Suite, Ford Filed MVP Club Seats and the Jim Beam Suite.

Group tickets for groups of more than 10 people are available and sometimes come with reduced prices. Additionally, groups receive a group welcome message on the left-center field video board, a group leader voucher, outing promotional posters and discounts on advanced ticket pricing. However, booking group tickets is not simple and requires you to fill out an application and work through a sales account executive at the Yankee ticket office.
