MILWAUKEE - Today's single-digit temperatures were ignored by the Brewers faithful today as thoughts of summer days at Miller Park filled the air. Fans queued up early at Miller Park to be the first to get single-game tickets, and combined with online purchases, the Brewers had one of the best days of single-game ticket sales in team history.
As of 3 pm, 101,000 tickets had been sold, tied for the second-highest sold in a single day in team history. The total of 101,000 is 10,000 more than last year on the first day of sales for individual games. (NOTE: the franchise record for tickets sold in a single day is 104,000, achieved on the first day of sales in 2009.)
In addition, the Club announced that Opening Day, April 6 versus the Rockies, is sold out, except for a limited number of tickets that remain as part of Season Seat packages (see below). Several additional games have limited inventory remaining.
"Once again, Brewers fans proved that spring and summer come early when it comes to being ready for baseball, and we appreciate their incredible support," said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. "We encourage everyone to purchase tickets in advance, not only because several games have limited inventory remaining, but also because the best deals with demand-based pricing are typically for tickets purchased early."
Fans still have the opportunity to obtain tickets to Opening Day and all of the high demand games with the purchase of a partial or full Season Seat plan. Information on Season Seat plans is available by calling 414-902-HITS.
Games that have been the most popular with fans purchasing tickets today include Sunday, May 10 against the Cubs (Hank The Ballpark Pup Bobblehead, presented by Pick 'n Save), Saturday, May 30 against the Diamondbacks (Star Wars Night), Saturday, June 13 against the Nationals (Brewers Postgame Concert Series featuring O.A.R., presented by Miller Lite) and Sunday, June 28 versus the Twins (Paul Molitor Bobblehead, presented by Klement's).
As part of today's Arctic Tailgate activities, the first 2,000 fans at the Box Office received a free Arctic Tailgate t-shirt, a Klement's hot dog and a Pepsi, with donuts provided by Grebe's Bakery.
Tickets remain on sale at the Miller Park Box Office, through brewers.com, by phone (414-902-4000) and at all tickets.com outlets.
