Blue Jays fans aren’t a little excited about the chance that their team will take the field in the World Series – much. How much? Toronto Blue Jays World Series tickets lasted less than an hour after they went on sale at the box office Thursday morning, and were being resold on third party ticket sites even before the official sold-out announcement.
Toronto World Series tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday, October 22nd
Jays’ vice president for ticket sales and service told newspapers at 10:24 a.m. that there were a few hundred tickets still available, but that they were single-seat and obstructed view tickets only. Just 23 minutes later, at 10:47 a.m., the Blue Jays official Twitter account tweeted, “World Series tickets are now sold out.”
The release of World Series was a limited one, with only a few thousand tickets going on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Prices for the tickets ranged from $160 to $1,400 per seat, the most expensive Jays playoff tickets so far this season – at least through official channels. Fans could buy up to four seats at once either online or over the phone.
Needless to say, fans who look for Toronto Blue Jays tickets at third party reseller websites can expect to pay considerably more. Less than 30 minutes after the front office announced that World Series tickets were sold out, they were already appearing at ticket reseller websites, where the prices for the cheap tickets started at $365 each, while tickets with better views were fetching nearly $700 a ticket.
Choice seats go for considerably more on ticket reseller sites, where sellers determine the prices they’ll accept for their World Series tickets. If you want to sit behind home plate in Game 7 – if it even happens – be ready to pony up $12,000 per ticket. By Friday night, Toronto Blue Jays World Series tickets for 500-level tickets were fetching $9,300 apiece on ticket reseller site SportsTicketBank.com, and a seat in a private, 20-person suite could set Blue Jays fans back a whopping $24,000.
Of course, the Blue Jays still have to make it into the series, let alone to Game 7. As of Friday morning, the Kansas City Royals held the lead in the ALCS, and had not yet begun selling their own World Series tickets. One Royals fan noted in a Tweet, “So interesting that the bluejays are selling World Series tickets this am. Let’s make sure tomorrow that they have to refund all that $$.”
The Jays need two more wins on the road to play in the World Series for the first time in 22 years, and the fans are giving them a vote of confidence with every World Series ticket they buy.
