The White Sox are taking a new approach to ticket pricing early this season. For under $50, fans can get their hands on the “White Sox Ballpark Pass”, which grants permission to either 11 or 21 home games at U.S. Cellular Field in the months of April and May.
Different restrictions apply for both deals, however, and the voucher cannot be used for Opening Day or Paul Konerko’s Retirement Ceremony on May 23 which respectively are averaging $150 and $347 per ticket on the secondary market and can be found below. The 11-game bundle is priced at just $29 and guarantees a seat at the park for any home Monday-Thursday home game during the season’s first two months. If planning to utilize the 21-game plan, the Ballpark Pass is priced at $49 and includes a seat for most home games in April and May. Both options are available via the official White Sox website.
The 11-game Ballpark Pass offers seven home games against the Indians, three games against the Tigers and an April 23 game against the defending A.L. champion Royals. The 21-game bundle includes seven games against the Indians, four games against the Royals, four games against the Twins, three games against the Tigers and three games against the Reds.
Fans can buy up to eight (8) passes each and are encouraged to make one transaction if hoping to sit together. In order to access the ticket bundles, one must download the MLB.com Ballpark app and create or login to their MLB.com account. Following a bundle purchase, tickets and their respective barcodes will be loaded into the app prior toApril 10. A text notification will be sent hours prior to first pitch alerting fans where their seats are for that specific game. Seats will be different for each game and located in the Upper Corners, Outfield Reserved or Lower Corners of U.S. Cellular Field.
While ticket demand is typically lower in the infancy months of the season, the White Sox are putting a new spin on generating fan interest early in the year. The White Sox enter 2015 on the heels of a forgettable 73-89 season but will hope that their youth and dominant starting pitching core will reverse their fortune this season.
Equipped with Jose Abreu, Chris Sale and newly acquired ace Jeff Samardzija, the White Sox are poised to make noise in the A.L. Central. They’ll face formidable competition in the Tigers and Royals, however, who both boast World Series talent and experience.
The White Sox begin their season on the road against the Royals on April 6. They’ll head to Chicago for their home opener against the Twins on April 10.
