Padres fans in high temperature. With only a few victories between the brothers and their third World Championship appearance, some fans are starting to wonder how they can get tickets.
Pretty soon, you say? We don’t think so, and neither do the Padres. Tickets will go on sale this week.
Here’s what to know if you’re hoping to sign up.
How can I get tickets for the World Series games at Petco Park?
According to the Padres MLB website, there are “a very limited number of tickets available for the 2022 post-season” and these tickets are reserved for people in certain areas: San Diego County, Baja California, Imperial County, Southern Orange County, South Riverside County and a few other locations .
The first minutes will go to 2023 season ticket holders for those who book “all-inclusive hospitality space and suites,” and there’s a special pre-sale. This pre-sale begins Thursday, October 20. Tickets will be limited based on the type of membership plan and number of seats associated with each member’s account – 3 tickets for members with one to two seats, and 4 tickets for members with three or more seats.
Tickets will then be sold “to a select group of suite and hospitality customers, groups and fans” in groups of up to four groups beginning Friday, October 21 at 2 p.m. on Ticketmaster.
If you’re hoping to score tickets for multiple games, you’ll have to move quickly. The Padres website says you can only check out one game at a time.
What if the Badris didn’t make it?
Any postseason games that have not been played will have a credit applied to the next postseason game. If the Padres are disposed of, season ticket holders will receive a credit for unplayed games that can be applied to the 2023 season. Ticket purchases for others will be automatically refunded to the original payment method.
Across San Diego, people are cheering for Padres and there is expected to be a big party again in Game Four. Bad smell from Barrio Logan. Here is the San Diego News Daily for October 15, 2022.
When will the World Championship matches be played?
The Pads must beat the Phillies four times in the National League Series (NLCS) to advance to the World Series Tour, where they will face the ALCS Series winner – either the Houston Astros, the New York Yankees or the Cleveland Guardians. One of the last two teams will be eliminated on Tuesday, so we’ll have a better idea of who the brothers could theoretically face.
The Yankees have lost the MLS Series twice to Houston in the past five years and they would have full motive for revenge. Still, revenge may be a dish that stays cool. Houston has several advantages over New York in this potential ALCS rematch: a better start on the field, better batting order, and a much easier schedule leading to the seven-game series.
Meanwhile, The Guardians have played the underdog twice already in the post-season. The third time charm? not exactly. Houston should be able to dominate the AL Central winners and be their fourth world championship in six years. Justin Verlander & Co have dominated the rackets of the Guardian this season. We expect more of the same.
No matter who’s playing, here’s what the timeline will look like:
- The first two matches of the World Championships – scheduled for Friday 28 October and Saturday 29 October – will take place in the ALCS winner’s hometown.
- The following three games give NLCS the home field advantage. In this scenario where the Padres are in the World Championships, that would be at Petco Park. These games are set on Halloween, Monday, October 31, and the first two days of November. Times will not be determined until matches are set.
- If the series moves to games 6 and 7, they will be played at the MLS stadium after two days of rest. It is scheduled to be on Friday and Saturday, 4 and 5 November.
How about an NLCS match?
Okay, okay, so we’re really getting ahead of ourselves. In order for the San Diego Padres to reach the World Championships, they must advance past the Phillies on the NLCS Tour, which has yet to start. Here’s what you need to know about this series:
- The seven-game series begins on Tuesday, October 18, and the Padres have a home-field advantage in their first two consecutive games. This is set at 5:03 PM PST and 1:35 PM respectively
- After Travel Day, the Pads will play Philly Games 3 on Friday, October 21 at 4:37 PM PST; Game 4 on Saturday, October 22 at 4:45 p.m.; And the fifth game on Sunday, October 23 at 11:37 am
- If the series needs to extend to Games 6 and 7, those games will return to San Diego on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 25-26, both at 5:03 p.m.
Are tickets still available for NLCS games in San Diego?
Tickets appear to be sold out at Ticketmaster, the official San Diego Padres retailer, but some seats are available at resale sites like GameTime and Stubhub – if you’re willing to pay a premium. StubHub, Padres’ official fan distributor, has tickets available for around $140, although the average ticket price is close to $400.
