BREWERS SELL 101,000 TICKETS ON FIRST DAY OF INDIVIDUAL-GAME SALES

Today’s single-digit temperatures were ignored by the Brewers faithful today as thoughts of summer days at Miller Park filled the air. Fans queued up early at Miller Park to be the first to get single-game tickets, and combined with online purchases, the Brewers had one of the best days of single-game ticket sales in team history.

As of 3 pm, 101,000 tickets had been sold, tied for the second-highest sold in a single day in team history. The total of 101,000 is 10,000 more than last year on the first day of sales for individual games. (NOTE: the franchise record for tickets sold in a single day is 104,000, achieved on the first day of sales in 2009.)

In addition, the Club announced that Opening Day, April 6 versus the Rockies, is sold out, except for a limited number of tickets that remain as part of Season Seat packages (see below). Several additional games have limited inventory remaining.

“Once again, Brewers fans proved that spring and summer come early when it comes to being ready for baseball, and we appreciate their incredible support,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We encourage everyone to purchase tickets in advance, not only because several games have limited inventory remaining, but also because the best deals with demand-based pricing are typically for tickets purchased early.”

Fans still have the opportunity to obtain tickets to Opening Day and all of the high demand games with the purchase of a partial or full Season Seat plan. Information on Season Seat plans is available by calling 414-902-HITS.

Games that have been the most popular with fans purchasing tickets today include Sunday, May 10 against the Cubs (Hank The Ballpark Pup Bobblehead, presented by Pick ‘n Save), Saturday, May 30 against the Diamondbacks (Star Wars Night), Saturday, June 13 against the Nationals (Brewers Postgame Concert Series featuring O.A.R., presented by Miller Lite) and Sunday, June 28 versus the Twins (Paul Molitor Bobblehead, presented by Klement’s).

As part of today’s Arctic Tailgate activities, the first 2,000 fans at the Box Office received a free Arctic Tailgate t-shirt, a Klement’s hot dog and a Pepsi, with donuts provided by Grebe’s Bakery.

Tickets remain on sale at the Miller Park Box Office, through brewers.com, by phone (414-902-4000) and at all tickets.com outlets.

WEATHER FORCES CHANGES TO “ARCTIC TAILGATE” PLANS AT MILLER PARK; Camping Out for Tickets Prohibited Due to Plummeting Temperatures

With frigid overnight temperatures expected for Thursday and Friday, today we announced that nightly camping for Saturday’s “Arctic Tailgate” will not be permitted. The earliest that fans will be allowed to arrive for the event will be 5 am on Saturday morning.

The Arctic Tailgate event marks the beginning of individual ticket sales for 2015 Brewers home games. Participants were originally going to be allowed to arrive at noon Thursday, and historically fans have camped over Thursday and Friday nights on the Miller Park Plaza area for the opportunity to secure tickets.

 

“This event is a tradition for many of our fans, but conditions are going to be too dangerous to be in the elements for extended exposure,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We simply do not want to put anyone’s personal health at risk with the expected conditions.”

 

The revised plan calls for gates to the parking lots to open at 5 am on Saturday. The Box Office will open at 9 am for the beginning of individual game ticket sales.

 

The Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate t-shirt. In addition, Grebe’s Bakery will supply fans with doughnuts. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ will both serve as media sponsors, and the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls will be in attendance on Saturday.

Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: the Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on February 28; no phone or online orders will be accepted). Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability.

 

In addition to the Miller Park Ticket Office, fans will be able to buy tickets and parking at Brewers.com or by phone at (414) 902-4000. The Miller Park Ticket Office will be open until 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 28. Normal Box Office hours are from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday (beginning Monday, March 2), 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Add “BREWERS” on Snapchat for More Social Media Fun

Spring Training is underway and Opening Day is right around the corner. Brewers Baseball is just 41 days away, but I know that for some fans, that’s just not soon enough.

But, hopefully this news will help bridge  that gap: This week, we are introducing a new way for fans to interact with us….

The Brewers are joining Snapchat! 

Snapchat is one app with many uses. People use it to communicate one-to-one, one-to-few, and one-to all. They share moments, through stills and videos, and can add captions, doodles, or filters to make them even more fun and personal.

MB-15-Snapchat-AddBrewers-600x600

Add the user name “Brewers” in Snapchat for exclusive content, contests and games. We have some other surprises planned, but we don’t want to spoil anything.

We are really excited to interact with you in this new way–look for us to start Snapping away in earnest beginning this Friday!

Get Your Individual Tickets Early Through this Exclusive Presale!

Sometimes, it’s good to be a follower.

As in, this Friday, February 27, from 9am-5pm CT when our followers on social media will have the chance to purchase individual game tickets before they go on sale to the general public on February 28 in conjunction with the Brewers Arctic Tailgate event.

SocialMediaPresale_header

Here’s how it works–if you don’t already follow us on Twitter, click here and follow @Brewers. (Not on Twitter? No worries–it’s free and now is the perfect time to sign up! Just don’t blame me when you find yourself addicted to the service. #ILoveTwitter)

Then, just watch our account. Along with all of the news, insider updates and information that we normally share on Twitter, we’ll be tweeting out a special password that you’ll need to be able to take advantage of this special pre-sale opportunity. You’ll use that password on Friday at brewers.com/socialpresale.

We’ll also be doing the same on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Google+ and, even our newest platform set to launch later this week, Snapchat (coming soon, stay tuned for details).

Once you receive the password, you’ll be able to log in at brewers.com/socialpresale on Friday, February 27 from 9am to 5pm CT, where you’ll have the chance to purchase individual game tickets to 80 home games (sorry guys, no Opening Day through this presale) before the general public gets their shot on Saturday morning. There will be an eight (8) ticket limit per game for this online sale.

So what you need to do between now and Friday:

1. Be sure you’re following us on all of the channels noted above (or at least one!).

2. Familiarize yourself with the 2015 schedule so when the time comes, you know exactly which games you want to snag. Are you going for the #20In15 All-Fan Bobblehead and/or T-Shirt games? Or maybe you’re looking to lock in your 5-County or Spring Madness dates? Maybe you want to check out the Royals, Indians, White Sox or Twins when they come to town for Interleague play? View the full promotional schedule here.

So this year, you may just want to avoid the cold and camp out in front of your computer instead. Or, if you’re still planning to attend Arctic Tailgate for the camaraderie and/or your shot at Opening Day tickets*, you could also still take advantage of this opportunity while you’re waiting in line–yep, shopping online while waiting in line.  Thank you, technology.
