How D-backs fans can secure seats to the World Series games in Phoenix
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - The D-backs are heading to the World Series! Here’s how to get tickets to the games at Chase Field in Phoenix.
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
Back in 2001, when the Diamondbacks won their first World Series, fans had to camp out overnight outside the ticket offices of Bank One Ballpark (now known as Chase Field), hoping to get their hands on the valuable tickets only to find out that scalpers snatched up a majority of tickets before they could even make it to the window. Now, fans can buy tickets online today to secure their seats if the team makes it. If they don’t, the team, through Ticketmaster, will automatically issue full refunds to ticketholders.
WHAT GAMES ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE DBACKS?
According to the team, they are selling tickets for the home games on Monday, Oct. 30 (Game 3), Tuesday, Oct. 31 (Game 4), and Wednesday, Nov. 1 (Game 5, if necessary). Games 1 and 2 are on Friday and Saturday, respectively, and will be played at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. Those tickets are available through the Texas Rangers, who won the ALCS on Monday. If the series goes long, Game 6 would be on Friday, Nov. 3, and Game 7 would be on Saturday, Nov. 4. Both games would be in Arlington.
IS TICKET SCALPING LEGAL IN ARIZONA?
Yes. Arizona has few rules regarding ticket scalpers. A.R.S. 13-3718 does ban the sale of scalped tickets sold at a higher cost than the purchase price (including taxes and other charges already paid) within 200 feet of the venue, in this case, Chase Field. Also, it’s illegal for any ticket sellers, regardless of distance, to change the printed price on the ticket without written permission from the vendor (the Diamondbacks).
Tickets historically sell out fast. Experts say ticket prices will skyrocket.
