The St. Louis Cardinals have received approval from Major League Baseball to begin selling tickets for any potential National League Division Series and National League Championship Series games to be played at Busch Stadium in 2007. Tickets for those two series will go on sale Monday, September 24.
As part of the Cardinals' continuing effort to make postseason tickets available to as many people as possible, the team has developed an efficient and fair ticket ordering process. Fans must pre-register at stlcardinals.com by on Wednesday, September 19 for a random drawing to have the opportunity to purchase tickets online. Tickets will not be available at Busch Stadium or over the phones.
The online registration will work as follows:
Wednesday, September 5, through Wednesday, September 19,
· Cardinals' fans may log on to stlcardinals.com and register for a chance to purchase postseason tickets.
Friday, September 21
· Winners will be notified by e-mail. The e-mail will provide winners on instructions on how to purchase tickets on Monday, September 24.
Monday, September 24,
· Winners will have the opportunity to purchase up to four (4) tickets for one (1) game out of the seven (7) possible NLDS and NLCS games at Busch Stadium. Seat locations will be sold on a first-come basis.
"There has been an unprecedented demand for tickets in 2007 and we expect that tickets to potential home playoff games will sell out quickly" said Mark Lamping, Cardinals president. "We believe the online registration program that was used last year is the best way to give all fans an equal opportunity to experience the most exciting games of the year."
The exact number of seats available is unknown until the Cardinals receive commitments from Season Ticket holders.
Ticket prices remain unchanged from last year and range in price from $18 to $60 each for the NLDS and $38 to $80 each for the NLCS, with tickets available in most seating areas throughout Busch Stadium.
