Reds playoff tickets going for big bucks
Don't Waste Your Money
Last Updated: 416 days ago
The Cincinnati Reds are now Division Champs, and many fans feel this year is not like the last time the team made the playoffs.
Fans 9 News spoke with at the Reds Gift Shop think the team has a good chance of playing well into October.
One fan told us "we have been waiting for this for months," while another woman said, "I feel this time there's a real chance."
What You Will Pay
So are you hoping for a chance to see the Reds in the National League Division Series next week?
While the opposing team and exact dates have yet to be announced, we checked with the team, and found a few Standing Room Only seats still available for home games 3, 4, and 5. Those SRO seats cost $30 each.
Most seats went to season ticket holders, who had the option of purchasing multiple tickets to all three home games in the initial home series (games 3, 4, and 5).
Don't want to stand? A more realistic bet right now is to visit Stub Hub.com, the ticket re-seller.
We found thousands of playoff seats available, starting around:
-$80 for Upper Deck View Level seats
-$100 up to well over $1,000 for the mezzanine and infield box seats.
Cheaper Option for Families
If the kids just want another chance to cheer for the home team, then consider going to this week's final regular season homestand against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Seats are going for as little as 50 cents each on StubHub.com, and for the adults, the beer and hot dogs are just as good.
As always, don't waste your money.
