With the offseason in the rear view mirror, it’s time to take a look at what the Mets will be able to provide on the field. Bartolo Colon and Curtis Granderson will be donning blue and orange for the first time, and David Wright is fully healed from his late-season injury in 2013. With Matt Harvey expected to miss most – if not all – of 2014, the pitching is a little thinner (especially if news from Jonathan Niese’s upcoming MRI is bad,) but they certainly have the talent to compete in the NL East if they get a bit of luck.
The big question now is: how much will it cost for fans to grab Mets tickets to see their team play in the opener?
The first home game of the season is against one of their four divisional foes, the Washington Nationals, on Monday, March 31st. Both teams are looking to return to the post-season after failing to make the playoffs in 2013. The average ticket price for the opener is $144 while the get in price for this game is $53. Typically, tickets will drop a bit as the event nears, so for those looking to save some cash on Opening Day tickets, waiting may be the best option.
The second and third games of the series against Washington are considerably cheaper, and an opportunity for Mets fans to enjoy Citi Field for bargain prices. The average ticket price is $50 for the Wednesday, April 2nd game and $46 for the Thursday, April 3rd matchup. The get-in price for those two games is $11 and $9, respectively.
Opening day is a little over a month away, so now is certainly an opportunity to check out the Mets schedule and see which games you want to see this season. Make sure to check out TicketIQ for tickets to any 2014 Mets game!
