The Kansas City Royals are a Major League Baseball team who has seen a lot of ups and downs over the last few years. Despite this, tickets to Royals games are one of the most popular items in all of MLB right now, due largely to the fact that the team won the American League pennant in 2014 and then the World Series in 2015 and is currently one of the most successful teams in the American League. This was only their second championship (their first was in 1985), and in between then, the team had one of the longest streaks of not appearing in the postseason in any professional sport. However, today the Royals are a great team, and their fans are more loyal than ever before.

The team first played as a Major League club in 1969. In the late 70s and early 80s, this was one of the best teams there was. They won the West Division six times in that period, and culminated all of this with the World Series championship in 85. George Brett was perhaps the most notable name from this era, and he is currently the only Royals player to appear in the Baseball Hall of Fame wearing a Royals cap for his plaque. Other greats have played for the team like Gaylord Perry and Bret Saberhagen, and there are a handful of players on the team now that have the potential to wind up in Cooperstown, too.

The Royals play their home games at Kauffman Stadium. Opening up in 1973, it holds the distinction of being the sixth oldest park in all of MLB right now. Named after the team’s founding owner, tickets to Kansas City Royals games here are now far more popular than they ever have been. If you find yourself in Kansas City, Missouri, whether for work or pleasure, then catching a game here is a great idea. The stadium recently underwent a $250 million plus renovation, and as a result, it’s one of the nicest, most attractive parks in all of baseball. If you’re in the city sometime, seeing a game here will be a lot of fun.
