Best Time to Buy New York Mets Tickets
The most common question when it comes to buying tickets is, when should you buy. We’ve studied this process for years and have determined many different things.
The sellers of tickets will of course want to sell their tickets as soon as possible. However, they know the sweet spot for when the best time to sell. Around 7-10 days before the game, is usually where we see the biggest influx of new tickets. This can vary some depending on the opponent.
Look for weekday games vs. the weekend to also save some money. We all want to see the star players from visiting teams, but remember sometimes you can save a lot of money watching a weaker opponent. Major League Baseball is filled with 1000’s of games each year. There is always a better time to buy a ticket, just feel comfortable with your purchase and not worry about it.
