Best Time to Buy Arizona Diamondbacks Tickets?
You decided to go to a game and now you want to find great seats for a minimal cost. Baseball is one of those games where if you’re lucky you can find some great seats for a reasonable price. You have to take a few things into consideration before purchasing your tickets but for the most part, you’ll end up with some nice seats.
Although the best time to get tickets will vary week to week we still think once you are two weeks out from your game you should start looking at different sections. Between seven and ten days is where prices will fluctuate either to the up or downside depending on the opponent.
You also have the opportunity to buy your tickets on the day of the game or just before the first pitch. This allows you to keep your options open. If there’s a particular game you want to watch, you may want to purchase those tickets in advance to make sure you get decent seats.
Unless the Diamondbacks are performing amazing, tickets will not sell out.
The other option to consider is the time and day of the week. You can be a lot more patient with games during the week or during the day rather than on a weekend. Weekend games are the most widely attended and costs will surely rise.
Where Should You Sit at Chase Field?
We will talk about this for all baseball teams. You want to be somewhere behind home plate. If you can afford right behind dugout seats, those are the most fun and most expensive. You have the option to see the players up close but at a price.
Sitting behind home plate does have its advantages because you can see the pitches come at the batter and you. You will pay a premium for these tickets. Some of the club seats around the arena provide special buffets and drink options. You can look into those and possibly save the day of the game on VIP seats.
We recommend watching a few sections where you want to sit. Once you get closer to the game you can see how the price fluctuates and then you can decide.
Seating Tip — Always remember the opponent and their record when finding seats. Maybe take in a game further away against a great team but move up close to a weaker team. The amount you can save could be mindboggling.
