Yanks announce ticket info; new plans on tap
Majority of prices to remain unchanged or will be reduced for 2012
NEW YORK -- The Yankees have announced general ticket information for regular-season games played at Yankee Stadium, stating that more than 70 percent of prices will be reduced or unchanged.
The team said on Tuesday that nearly one-third of available tickets for the upcoming 2012 season (in excess of 1.3 million tickets) will be priced at $30 or less, with at least 900,000 tickets priced at $25 or less.
All seats in the Field Level between the bases will be unchanged or reduced, while seats in the Field Level outfield sections located in fair territory (Sections 103-104 and 132-136) will have price reductions ranging from $10 to $35.
Grandstand Level seats beyond the bases will remain at $20, while Grandstand Level seats between the bases will be $28. Non-obstructed Bleachers tickets will increase by $5.
The Yankees also announced that three new 2012 ticket plans will be unveiled on Friday to start off the holiday season, exclusively at yankees.com. A new nine-game value plan with prices starting at $90 will replace the former 11-game plan.
In addition, the Yankees will offer two new 12-game plans, in which fans can choose between 12-game plan No. 1, which includes a ticket to Opening Day and one Boston Red Sox game, or 12-game plan No. 2, which includes a ticket to two Boston Red Sox games.
One other change is the introduction of the Half-Price Game Ticket Special, for select games during the 2012 season. Fans can purchase tickets in select areas of the Terrace Level, Grandstand Level or Bleachers for 50 percent off the advance ticket price. Tickets for Half-Price Games may be purchased in advance or on the day of game.
The Yankees drew 3,653,680 fans to Yankee Stadium in 2011, leading the American League in home attendance for the ninth consecutive season. Additional information is available at www.yankees.com/tickets.
