The Orioles today announced that American League Championship Series tickets for potential Games 3, 4 and 5 in Baltimore (labeled as Home Games 1, 2 and 3, respectively) will go on sale to the general public tomorrow at 10 a.m. exclusively online at www.orioles.com/postseason. Ticket availability is expected to be limited and tickets may sell out quickly.
Season plan holders have already had an opportunity to purchase tickets as part of the postseason invoicing process and via an exclusive online pre-sale this past Saturday.
Fans who previously registered for the postseason ticket opportunity on orioles.com were notified this weekend if they were selected for the chance to purchase during a special online pre-sale that began earlier today.
While an on-sale date for World Series tickets has not yet been announced, fans wishing to purchase World Series tickets have two potential options:
Option 1: 2013 season plan deposit
Fans will receive the opportunity to purchase World Series tickets before the general public by placing a $250 per seat deposit on a 2013 full or partial season ticket plan, including 13-game plans, before tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 11:59 p.m. The date for the World Series ticket pre-sale will be announced at a later time.
Option 2: Online pre-sale opportunity
Fans can enter a valid email address at www.orioles.com/postseason for a chance to be selected to participate in a special pre-sale prior to World Series tickets being released to the general public. Fans are encouraged to enter the postseason ticket opportunity in order to have a better chance at acquiring postseason tickets; however, fans who enter are not guaranteed to be chosen for the opportunity.
A public sale for World Series tickets will be announced at a later date.
