Why are there only 9,000 tickets going on sale Friday? Where do the other 37,000 tickets go? Surely there aren't 37,000 season ticket holders.

:angry:

Tickets are also available online and through ticketmaster phone lines.


I'm sure with a four ticket limit that everyone who lines at the Cell Friday morning will go home happy.

No parking rules are in effect so living in Bridgeport is really starting to pay off.

Tickets get allotted to the following groups before going on sale to the public
1) Season ticket holders
2) Visiting team
3) MLB
4) Season ticket holders allowance for extras
5) Other MLB teams
6) MLB Sponsors

THEN....US...

Sorry guys...but that's how it always is. I wish I could buy season tickets and go to more games so I could hold a season ticket for the playoffs - but I dont for a number of reasons. I gotta hope to be able to get some of the 9,000 availables...

Good Luck All!

They guarentee tickets to season ticket holders first, just like always.

Is that 4 tickets per game or 4 tickets per call. I would hate to buy 4 for the first game and get locked out of any additional tickets.

Anyone have an opinion on whether I'd be better off at the Cell or on the computer on Friday?

I used to go line up for tix all the time at the box office until a complete fiasco last year where I got locked out of all the Cub/Sox games, etc. because the ticket windows were slow and the 'net folks ate them all up.

Do Sox 7 count? Doesn't apply to me this year, but I'm thinking of cutting down on my Sox habit a bit next year :D:

Sox 7 may count. I have organized a couple Sox outings this year and they offered me the opportunity to buy four upper deck seats for the first round in addition to my offers as a weekend season ticket holder.

As for going in person, I have had enough online ticket nightmares to not count on this method again. If you go line up near the south entrance. There are normally less people there compared to windows closer to 35th street.

I have heard that in the past they offered tickets to the Sox7 holders but i got it this year and havent seen anything yet.

My thought is that the Sox seven does not count because season ticket holders (full and split) had to have their playoff tickets paid for in full by September 5th.

I'm a Sox Seven package holder too and I haven't heard a word. I'm gonna try on the 'net tomorrow.

Hi,
Group outings got offers for 2 strips for the ALDS.
Full Season Holders got thier guranteed allotment(all games for all seats in plan) AS WELL AS Full Strips for ALDS/ALCS for TWICE the number of seats they hold. Location unknown to me, as I'm a partial holder. I got a full strip for alds, and game 2 of ALCS/WS. I also for a form for extra tickets for ALDS for an equal number of seats in my partial plan(I had four)..I also took advantage of teh Group form. The sox did send me a patio party form for either game 1 or 2 of the alds, but it was a bit expensive(20 people at 80 bucks a pop...50 for patio package and 30 for ticket)

10,000 to the public, 11,000 for each of the season ticket holders and up to 22,000 for extras for the season ticket holders and then the other 14,000 for the MLB
