Tickets for potential 2012 Wild Card & NL Division series games to go on sale Friday, September 21

The Washington Nationals announced today that tickets for potential Wild Card and National League Division Series games at Nationals Park will go on sale to the general public Friday, September 21 at 10:00 a.m. ET. A maximum of four tickets for each game may be purchased online at or by calling 888.632.NATS(6287) on a first come, first served basis.

In addition, the Nationals Park Box Office will sell a limited number of Standing Room Only tickets the day of each postseason game, subject to availability. In the event the Nationals qualify, National League Championship Series and World Series single game tickets will go on sale in the coming weeks, based on availability.

Season Ticket Holders and Nationals Insiders received information regarding their opportunity to purchase single game postseason tickets earlier this month. Fans only have a few more days to place a deposit on 2013 full season ticket plans and receive 2012 postseason ticket purchase priority before tickets go on sale to the general public.

The Nationals could secure a postseason berth as early as this week, when they host the Los Angeles Dodgers for a three-game series at Nationals Park. Washington’s magic number to clinch a Wild Card spot is currently at three, while its magic number to clinch the National League East is 11. This year marks the first time a Washington baseball team has been in a position to qualify for the postseason since 1933, when the Washington Senators reached the World Series against the New York Giants.
