Citi Field General Information

Citi Field Attendance

Capacity: 41,800
New York Mets Ticket Availability:
Despite declining attendance since its debut in 2009, Citi Field still averages around 31,000 fans, and is 74% full. There will be seats available on the primary market, but a good inventory of the best seats will be found on secondary markets such as reputable online brokers TicketNetwork and AwesomeSeating.
The Mets have one of the most complex ticket pricing schemes around, with 5 different pricing levels for each type of seat, depending on the game. The most expensive games are Opening day and Yankee games, but there are also 10 value dates (mainly early and late season weekday games against the likes of San Diego and Miami). Note that prices listed below are FACE VALUE, the secondary ticket market prices will fluctuate around those values based on supply/demand.
Reselling Tickets ("scalping"):
Reselling tickets within 500 yards (1500 feet) of Citi Field is prohibited


Best View at Citi Field


Caesars Club Box and Caesars Club Gold 309-329:
Awesome views from "press box" height. These seats are on the expensive side, averaging ~$120ish (ranging from $42 down the lines on "value dates" to $231 for the sections behind the plate at Yankees/opening day games)...but you get what you pay for. They are padded seats, and provide access to the Caesars Club, an indoor bar with impressive views, as well as the Acela Club and Promenade Club.



AVOID

Parts of Upper Promenade (500 level) sections:
The entire sections aren't bad...actually providing some affordable seating options, although the view isn't the best in the ballpark. But, be aware that we've recieved feedback that the first few rows are obstructed by handrails, staircases, and the auxiliary scoreboards. Also, the last rows in sections 536-538 are obstructed by the out of town scoreboard (as well as being a long distance from the plate!).

Promenade Box 433-437:
These left field upper deck seats are quite a distance from homeplate - because the price differential is generally around $5, we'd recommend you pay a little extra to have much better seats on the level just below (Left Field Landing 334-337) - or to look for seats in Right Field "Pepsi Porch" section 301 (read more here)

Promenade Club 406 to 423:
Most Affordable Great View! These infield sections offer great views of the entire field from mid/high level, but not too high up to feel close to the action. Be prepared for foul balls, particularly in sections 413-416. Not the cheapest seats with average face value $60 (ranging from $36 to $84 depending on game), but also not even close to the most expensive seats in the house.

These upper level sections overhang the field in right field, catching homerun balls that would otherwise land on the warning track. Fans have raved of the affordability, view, and the fact that concession lines seem shorter. The view is not bad, but in some areas you will not be able to see warning track or bullpens. Show up early (gates open 2½ hours before gametime) for batting practice and bring your glove! Face Value from $24 to $56, with most games falling in the $32-$48 range.


Best Seats for Families at Citi Field


Big Apple Reserved 140-142:
Be sure to bring sun protection to these $35 (average face value) lower level seats in centerfield. These are the most affordable lower level seats (don't need to drag the family to the top of the stadium), and also sit next to the bullpens to allow for some distractions from the game. Perhaps the best attraction for families is that it is near the 2K Sports FanFest, which features appearances by Mr. Met, a batting cage, dunk tank, and other attractions should the kids lose interest in the game.

Best Seats to Impress Guests


Delta Club Sections 11-19:
Lower level seats right behind homeplate, the view from the seats alone are impressive...but wait, there's more! The seats are padded, theatre-style seats and offer in-seat wait service, and provide access to the Acela Club, the Delta Sky360 Club, and Ebbets Club. Even more impressive is the price on these seats - Delta Club Silver level seats been found on TicketNetwork for just over $100, a great value. If you want to sit in the first few rows, those seats are considered "Gold" level, and are priced appropriately at about $400 per game. You can't go wrong with either option if you are looking to seal the deal!

Best Seats for Catching Baseballs


Pepsi Porch 301-303:
These upper level sections overhang the field in right field, catching homerun balls that would otherwise land on the warning track. Fans have raved of the affordability, view, and the fact that concession lines seem shorter. The view is not bad, but in some areas you will not be able to see warning track or bullpens. Show up early (gates open 2½ hours before gametime) for batting practice and bring your glove! Face Value from $24 to $56, with most games falling in the $32-$48 range.


Best Seats for Autographs


Field Box 109-110, 125-126:
Lower level seats just past the infield, these offer a great view close to the action if you want to sit here during the game, and offer access to the Acela Club, a fine dining restaurant with views of the playing field and Skyline. All fans are allowed in this area for autographs before gametime, so it is best to get here immediately after gates open, 2 hours before the game (Rotunda gate). Guests without tickets in these areas will be asked to leave at the conclusion of batting practice (about 45 minutes before gametime). Tickets range around $120. For Mets autographs, section 110 is best, whereas visiting fans will want to hang out near section 126 for their teams autographs.

Unique Seats at Citi Field


Bridge Terrace 143:
This right-centerfield section consists of 18 tables with four seats facing the field. These are ticketed seats (not first-come first-serve) and can be hard to find since there are only 72 of these available per game.
