Opening Day at Chase Field sold out
PHOENIX - The Arizona Diamondbacks announced today that Opening Day at Chase Field, to be held this Friday, is completely sold out. Tickets remain for Opening Weekend on Saturday, April 7 at 1:05 p.m. and Sunday, April 8 at 1:10 p.m. vs. the San Francisco Giants.
"This is the earliest we've sold out Opening Day in several years and we're expecting a great crowd throughout Opening Weekend," said D-backs' President & CEO Derrick Hall. "There is so much excitement right now for the D-backs that we're really encouraging our fans to get their tickets early for the best seats."
Fans attending the sold-out Opening Day game against the Giants will receive a D-backs t-shirt, courtesy of Gila River Casinos while the first 20,000 fans at the Saturday, April 7 1:05 p.m. game will receive a Magnet Schedule, courtesy of Pepsi. The first 10,000 fans at that same Saturday game will receive a Kirk Gibson Fan, courtesy of CenturyLink.
The Opening Day sellout comes on the heels of the D-backs' announcement last week that their Spring Training home, Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, broke its own year-old record for total attendance for a two-team complex. The complex's joint attendance between the D-backs and Rockies broke last year's mark of 359,308. That number had shattered the previous record for attendance at a two-team complex, surpassing the 2008 mark set in Peoria (230,146). The D-backs' average attendance is the highest in the Major Leagues.
