Well, it is almost time for tickets to go on sale for the FINAL season in the current Yankee Stadium. Tickets are already a hot commodity, so good luck scoring decent tickets to a game not involving the Orioles or Royals.
That being said, here are some key dates for you fellow Stadium Insiders to remember:
Friday, February 22 10AM - 10 PM - Season ticket holder regular season pre-onsale. If you are a season ticket holder, you can login to your online account, get your presale password and then you are good to go tomorrow at 10 AM. It is unclear whether "premium" games will be included in this on sale. I guess it will be a surprise.
Now until February 24 - general public regular season premium ticket opportunity. The Yankees have been allowing the general public to register on their website since February 6. This registration period ends on February 24. If you are randomly selected, you get first dibs on premium game tickets such as opening day, Red Sox games, Mets games, etc. Check out the fine print from Yankees.com below:
2008 Regular Season - Premium Game
