Default Sox Advance Parking Question

I used the WSI search engine and couldn't find the answer to this question so I apologize if it has been covered before. Can you buy Sox parking passes for a game ahead of time? I'm going to the crosstown series on Monday and plan on getting there earlier for tailgating. I was thinking about trying to buy a parking pass a few days early to try and save time and perhaps circumvent the long cash parking lines. Has anyone done this before? I know the "red" passes are usually for season ticket holders and green is for cash, I think. Do they sell the passes at the box office? Anyway, if someone can share their parking lot knowledge with me, I'd be an appreciative Sox fan.

Nope. Even if you had a pass, you would be in the same line as those with the green coupons to get into the lot.

The best advice I can give you is to either keep your eyes peeled in the WSI Ticket Exchange (sometimes posters sell or give away parking passes), or buy one at Stubhub.

They do sell the green ones from the box office. You can buy the red ones on stubhub now I believe and print at home. I have never done it but I have gotten the email from the sox that it can be done.

It's a two-folded question.

1. Yes, you can purchase advance parking passes to avoid being turned away from lots that don't accept cash.

2. But you still need to wait in the long lines with both cash and parking pass holders.

I agree with these two points. I recommend that if you plan on tailgating get to the lots at least 3 hours before the start of the game. Lines will probably not be obnoxious and you should get in without any drama.

Anything less then 2 hours and it's gonna be bad getting into the lots, pass or no pass.

Good advice but the OP wants to tailgate! Hard to drag a grill, cooler etc. on Metra.

Just a comment on parking:

I arrived to the OAK game last friday during the bottom of the 1st and lot L from 39th and lot G from 35th were closed and I was directed to lot C.

With an announced attendance of 20K I'm sure they weren't full. Seems a bit early to be closing the gates.

If I buy a green pass ahead of time, is there a certain lot I have to go to or will all the lots (with the exception of red) let me in?

This might help. Refer under the Green Coupons Section
I believe Green Coupon allows you only in Lot F or L normally unless
you show up very early like others have mentioned.

This is true. If you there very early, they will let you in Lot E.

This has a lot of good info, thanks. I checked the website under "P" for parking and this information was not listed. Weird that it is under driving directions instead.
