Baseball Ticket Sales

Red Sox fans have already bought more than two million tickets for the upcoming 2006 home schedule at “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark”, Fenway Park, and Boston is well on its way to break last year's record-setting ticket sales. There are many other examples of rising ticket sales in baseball, and now, with the advent of the World Baseball Classic, baseball ticket sales should see another rise in popularity.

Red Sox reportedly sold 2,135,540 tickets through the 28-29 January weekend, when tickets for most single games went on sale. Through the same dates in 2005, 2,079,909 tickets were sold out. The club hopes to sell more than 2.8 million tickets in 2006, which means several hundred thousand tickets are still available for sale for most games.

Red Sox fans have sold out 226 consecutive regular-season games, the second-longest streak in Major League Baseball history. The team sold a record 2,847,888 tickets in 2005. The club has also established attendance records each of the past six seasons.

Sales for full season tickets to Nationals games in 2005 came to 15,000 requests. Deposits for nearly 15,000 full season packages were accepted for the 2005 season, to be played out at the RFK Stadium in Washington D.C.

Using an average ticket price of $22 ($1,682.00) for a full season package, the projected income generated would be $26,730,000. Partial packages went on sale on January 1, 2005, after the seating assignments for full package sales were completed.

The Baltimore Orioles average 30,302 ticket sales per game, placing them at number eleven of thirty teams in Major League Baseball.
