    The New York Yankees announced today that full-season ticket licensees will receive complimentary tickets for the first exhibition games to be played in the new Yankee Stadium on April 3-4 vs. the Chicago Cubs, while partial-plan holders will receive the first opportunity to purchase tickets thereafter, via a pre-on-sale (restrictions apply). Individual-game ticket prices will not exceed $50 for either game.

    For the inaugural exhibition contests, Bleachers tickets will be priced at 25¢, and Grandstand tickets will be priced at $1.10 – the same prices they were on April 18, 1923, the day the original Yankee Stadium opened. Tickets on the Terrace Level will cost between $20-35, tickets on the Main Level will be $20-45, and tickets on the Field Level will range from $45-$50.

    Remaining tickets, subject to availability, will go on sale to the general public at a date to be determined in the future.

    “To express our gratitude toward our full-season ticket licensees, we are offering tickets for these two exhibition games at no cost to them,” said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. “The balance of tickets will be sold first to our partial-plan holders, then to the general public, at vastly reduced rates compared to the regular season. Using such a pricing model for these games allows us to thank our fans for their continued loyalty and introduce them to Baseball’s new grand cathedral.”

    Nice move by the Yankees here. Very cool. But, I still wish they were not playing these games…

      As much as I criticize the Yankees for profilgate spending and gluttony, they get a thumbs up from me on this one. It is cool that they are giving back to the fans like this. The only thing, I don’t like is the use of “full-season ticket licensees” especially that use of “licensees”. Time will tell if they try to play that NFL game with PSLs and I hope they don’t forget the fans that made them what they are and supported them before year BS (Before Steinbrenner)!
