If you want to get a deal on Yankees tickets you might want to try to go in 2008. The New York Yankees will charge $500 to $2,500 for seats near home plate in the first 5 to 8 rows of their new park which opens in 2009. The Yankees have already gotten commitments to buy for all 122 of the front-row seats.
The $1.3 billion ballpark will have 1,800 Legends Field Suite seats in 25 sections ringing home plate, with seats 20 feet closer to the infield than they are now. The ticket price also covers food and non-alcoholic drinks as well as access to a private entrance, elevator and concourse and the all important private restrooms. The seats will be cushioned and have teak arms. If you want these seats, you have to make a serious commitment, the seats must be bought for three, five, seven or 10 seasons with a specified scale of price increases. ESPN says that New York has lease commitments for 29 of 47 luxury suites selling for between $600,000 and $850,000 and there will be a 74-seat Club Suite priced at $700 per ticket.
These pricey seats have raised some eyebrows but the price of the suites does allow for cheaper seats elsewhere in the stadium. Bleachers will be $12 and the grandstand will be $20 and $25.
