There are only two more days left for a chance to buy single-game tickets before they’re opened up to the general public. This opportunity is available to only select individuals. One way to become one of those individuals is to register as a Club Mets member on Mets.com.
At the risk of sounding too much like a shill for Mets.com, I can tell you that Club Mets isn’t a bad deal for what you get. For $19.95, you can become a charter member and get the following:
- Official 2009 Membership ID Card & Welcome Letter from the Mets
- Complimentary 2009 MLB.com Gameday Audio subscription
- 15% discount at Mets Clubhouse Shops
- Special online mets.com Shop discounts throughout the season
- Access to a members-only page on mets.com and opportunity to receive special Club Mets e-mails
- Pre-sale ticket opportunities
- Complimentary Official Game Notes at Citi Field
Go here for more details.
For me, just getting the Gameday Audio subscription (which costs $14.95 by itself) makes it worthwhile. I’ve been able to listen to the Spring Training games and will be able to listen to day games during the regular season.
Once you sign up, you can look in the members-only section to get your special password to participate in the pre-sale. But you might want to hurry as most of the cheaper seats, especially the ones for the weekend games, already are sold out. Even a lot of the tickets in the $60-$100 per ticket range are gone.
There are some opportunities to get some pretty good seats for weekday games, if you don’t mind spending $75 or $90. I’m talking about field box and Caesar’s Club tickets.
For the rest of you non-Mets Club-bers out there, you’ll have to wait until Sunday.
