The Royals made single-game playoff tickets available to the general public yesterday. Several people made their way to Kauffman Stadium to try to purchase tickets at the gate, through a lottery system.
You could also try your hand purchasing tickets online through the Royals website. By all accounts, it was smooth sailing.
This @Royals playoff ticket things is a horrible mess. Charging cards and not giving tickets— Michael Smith (@prezmike25) September 18, 2014
I can confirm… the online ticketing for #Royals postseason is a disaster.— Craig Brown (@royalsauthority) September 18, 2014
MLB is totally Royalling the ticket purchase experience.— cupcakesarenice (@cupcakesarenice) September 18, 2014
@cupcakesarenice to be fair the Internet didn't exist the last time the Royals had to worry about playoff tickets— Matthew (@caseystacopizza) September 18, 2014
Me? I got my tickets yesterday for the Wild Card (if necessary) and American League Divisional Series first game (if necessary) through a secondary market ticket broker. Stuhub and Tickets for Less are probably your best bets.
What about you? Did you land post-season tickets? Do you plan to try to get post-season tickets? Where are we tailgating and is Farmhand bringing the pickles?
