It seems like decades ago when the Marlins overhauled their roster with the major signings of Jose Reyes, Mark Buerhle, and Heath Bell before the 2012 season. All three of those players are now gone, but the Marlins persist with a depleted roster in an almost brand new stadium. Entering 2014, there are certainly reasons for optimism, led by youngsters Giancarlo Stanton and Jose Fernandez, but that optimism has not caught on for Marlins tickets. They remain one of the lowest priced tickets available on the market
The first home game of the year is on March 31st against the Colorado Rockies. The average ticket price for this game is $121 while the cheapest ticket for this game is $21. Typically, the home opener is one of the most expensive games of the season for an individual team, but that is not the case for the Marlins. The second game of the season has an average ticket price currently of $101 only $20 cheaper than the home opener. Not only that, but the get-in price for this game is $34, a whopping $13 more expensive than the home opener. For the final game of this series, the average ticket price is $118 while the cheapest price you can get is $35.
Most of the teams that we have previewed have a pretty steep decline in ticket prices following the home opener, so it’s interesting to see the Marlins swing from that and have tickets that are in the same range as the home opener. One data nugget of note is that the quantity of tickets available for the Marlins is significantly lower than most other major league teams, which ultimately leads to a bit of an increase in ticket prices.
With a month to go before the opening series, tickets will undoubtedly drop, but there’s plenty of bargains to be had today so grab your tickets now!
