Yankees release 2012 general ticket information

The New York Yankees today announced general ticket information for the upcoming 2012 regular season at Yankee Stadium. In accordance with the policy set forth by Yankees ownership to review ticket pricing on an annual basis, all ticket prices in Yankee Stadium were reevaluated at the conclusion of the 2011 season.

In 2012, more than of 70 percent of the Yankees’ ticket prices will remain unchanged or will be reduced, including all Field Level seats between the bases. Nearly one-third of the Yankees’ available tickets for the upcoming 2012 season (in excess of 1.3 million tickets) will be priced at $30 or less, with at least 900,000 tickets priced at $25 or less. 
 
All seats in the Field Level outfield sections located in fair territory (Sections 103-104 and 132-136) will have price reductions ranging from $10 to $35. Grandstand Level seats beyond the bases will remain at $20, while Grandstand Level seats between the bases will be $28. Non-obstructed Bleachers tickets will increase by $5.
 
To kick off the holiday season on Friday, November 25, the Yankees will begin offering three new 2012 ticket plans exclusively at yankees.com. Replacing the former 11-game plan is a new nine-game value plan with prices starting at $90. In addition, the Yankees will offer two new 12-game plans, in which fans can choose between 12-game plan No.1, which includes a ticket to Opening Day and one Boston Red Sox game, or 12-game plan No. 2, which includes a ticket to two Boston Red Sox games. 
 
The Yankees drew 3,653,680 fans to Yankee Stadium in 2011, leading the American League in home attendance for the ninth consecutive season. The team also averaged an AL-best 45,107 fans per game, recording 20 sellouts – their most in a season at the current Yankee Stadium. 
 
Also, as in past years, the Yankees will make available individual-game ticket value programs throughout the 2012 season. New for the upcoming season is the Half-Price Game Ticket Special – for select games during the 2012 season, fans can purchase tickets in select areas of the Terrace Level, Grandstand Level or Bleachers for 50 percent off the advance ticket price. Tickets for Half-Price Games may be purchased in advance or on the day of game.
