Wild Card & ALDS tickets to go on sale to general public September 18

KANSAS CITY, MO - In anticipation for possible postseason play at Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas City Royals have announced that tickets for potential Wild Card and American League Division Series games will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, September 18. 

A limited number of tickets for individual Wild Card and ALDS match-ups that may take place at Kauffman Stadium will be available for sale beginning at 10 a.m. The Royals anticipate that tickets will sell out quickly and encourage fans to take advantage of the club's fast and convenient online ticketing options by purchasing tickets through www.royals.com/postseason. Tickets will also be available for purchase at the Kauffman Stadium Box Office. 

Fans who choose to purchase tickets at Kauffman Stadium on September 18 may begin arriving that morning no earlier than 8:30 a.m. and park in Lot M. Please note that overnight camping at the Truman Sports Complex will not be permitted.

The Royals will implement a random drawing procedure for purchasing tickets at Kauffman Stadium on September 18. Fans wishing to take part in the random drawing must obtain a wristband at Guest Services on Wednesday, September 17 during the game or Thursday, September 18 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. There is no advantage to collecting a wristband early within this time frame. On September 18, any fan that does not have a wristband will be in a second line behind the fans with wristbands. The drawing to determine line order will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, and tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Fans taking part in the random drawing will be able to purchase up to four seats for each game, while supplies last. Please note that a wristband does not guarantee the opportunity to purchase playoff tickets.

The 2014 Postseason schedule was announced by Major League Baseball last week. The American League Wild Card game is scheduled for Tuesday, September 30 with the ALDS set to begin on Thursday, October 2. Specific dates and game times will be announced at a later date.

In the event that a game is not necessary and, therefore, not played, all single-game purchases for that game will be refunded to the card on which they were purchased. No refunds will be issued for played games for any reason. The ticket holder will also receive a refund of the per ticket convenience fee. However, per order processing/shipping and handling fees are non-refundable.

Information about potential American League Championship Series and World Series tickets will be announced at a later date. Please note that ticket pricing for all playoff rounds will vary, and all prices are set in conjunction with Major League Baseball. As previously announced, Royals season ticket holders have already be given the opportunity to purchase tickets for all potential playoff games.
