How do I buy MLB tickets?

Tickets for the 2024 MLB regular season will be available to buy via Ticketmaster beginning in January. With a wide selection of tickets available, you can find tickets to almost any game you want to attend. Ticketmaster also gives fans a safe and secure way to buy resale tickets on our marketplace.

How much do MLB tickets cost?

Prices for MLB tickets will vary depending on the game. The original ticket price for MLB tickets are determined by the team. Resale tickets — meaning those sold by fans and season ticket holders, or professional resellers — are determined by the seller and can differ from the original ticket price.

When do MLB Postseason tickets go on sale?

Tickets to the 2024 MLB Postseason will most likely be available in September or early October 2024, as the end to the regular season draws near. MLB Postseason tickets may also be available for purchase as soon as teams clinch postseason spots near the end of the regular season. Keep checking Ticketmaster for 2024 MLB Postseason tickets.

Will my MLB game tickets include contactless entry?

Most MLB tickets purchased on Ticketmaster will be mobile. Mobile tickets give fans a safe, easy, convenient, and contactless way to access tickets, and get through the entrance of the venue and to their seat quickly. If your tickets are mobile, that means your phone is your ticket.

What happens to my MLB tickets if a game is rescheduled/postponed?

If a game is canceled and cannot be replayed, or if it is played under conditions that prohibit fans from attending, a full refund will be available.

Special note about tickets purchased for Major League Baseball games: All event refund, credit, and/or exchange policies for MLB games — including for canceled, postponed, rescheduled, or moved events — are subject to polices set for by the Event Organizer, and are determined on an event-by-event basis by the Event Organizer.

How do I access my MLB tickets?

You can access your MLB tickets in My Account on Ticketmaster.com or the app. From there, you can add the tickets to your Apple Wallet or Google Wallet for easy access at the entrance to the game. With mobile tickets, your phone is your ticket so all you need to do is pull up the ticket, have it scanned and you’re in. If you purchased resale tickets (where Ticketmaster is not the original ticket provider), the mobile tickets will be transferred directly to you from a trusted seller. Ticketmaster will email you instructions on how to accept them on the original ticket provider’s mobile app.

Additional MLB FAQs

What do I need to know before arriving at the stadium for an MLB game?

Each baseball stadium has its own set of rules regarding what fans can and cannot bring in. It’s important to check the official website for the team whose game you’re attending before you head out to the ballpark.

How does the MLB Postseason work?

The MLB Postseason is separated between the American League and the National League until the World Series. The winner of each League Championship Series wins a pennant and a berth to compete in the World Series. Both the National and American Leagues each have six postseason slots: winners of each division (the East, Central and West) and three wild card spots. The Division Series is decided in a best-of-five tilt, and the League Championship Series and World Series are both best-of-seven.
