How Much Does Attending the World Series Cost?

The World Series matches the champion baseball teams of the American and National leagues in a seven-game playoff beginning each October. The games are split between the two teams' stadiums with the best overall season record receiving first home-team status. Cost to attend the game is determined by stadium location and level and position of the seat.

Typical costs:

  • Stadium tickets in the bleachers, standing-room areas or high level sections cost about $200-$400 per person, per game, depending on location. Season ticket holders typically have first priority to purchase individual World Series tickets. The first team to win four ends the series, so games between well-matched teams that go to game 7 draw more interest and higher resale prices. For example, in 2011, game 7 tickets[1] averaged $572.
  • Seats closer to the field typically cost about $400-$700, with the seats behind the dugouts or nearest home plate priced about $6,000-$12,000, depending on the stadium, seat location and whether it's a final game. Also, the lower level seats may offer in-seat hospitality service that will deliver food and beverages, depending on the stadium.
  • Suites, often used for corporate events, typically sit up above the field and cost about $800-$900 per person with a 20-person minimum, depending on location and amenities from open bars to buffets.

What should be included:
  • All tickets include admission to the game. In some stadiums, a club level allows no host access to wait staff so the game won't be missed to run for a snack or drink.
Additional costs:
  • Food and beverage[2] prices vary by city. Domestic beer typically costs about $4-$10 and a hot dog about $1-$5. Many stadiums offer a wide variety of food, including clam chowder in a bread bowl to sushi.
  • Parking fees will also vary from $12-$40, depending on location.
Shopping for attending the world series:
  • World Series tickets may be purchased through MLB tickets[3] and Stub Hub[4] . Take care when buying tickets from an unknown source. Each year, 100-250 fraudulent tickets are discovered on game days. eBay offers a buyer-protection plan[5] for fraudulent items sold.
  • Check with the team's ticket office to see if any tickets are available. Some teams offer World Series ticket options to those who purchase a season pass for the following season.
