Royals announce Opening Day ticket opportunity
The Royals will hold an online Opening Day ticket opportunity program to give fans the chance to secure tickets for Opening Day presented by Sprint. The 2011 Royals season opener is set for Thursday, March 31 against the Los Angeles Angels. First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m.
To be eligible for the Opening Day ticket opportunity, fans must register online at www.royals.com/openingday. Online registration is currently open and will close on Monday, February 14 at 5:00 p.m. CST. A random drawing for the opportunity to purchase up to two tickets to Opening Day at Kauffman Stadium will be held later that week, and winners will be notified by Friday, February 18 via the email address submitted on the registration form. Those applicants whose names are selected will then have an opportunity to purchase 2011 Opening Day tickets at a date and time to be indicated in the winning email. As an added benefit, all fans that register for the Opening Day ticket opportunity will have the chance to purchase tickets to any other 2011 Royals home games prior to the general public through a special presale, which will take place on Thursday, February 24 on royals.com.
Fans can also guarantee themselves Opening Day tickets by purchasing a full-season, half-season or 21-game season ticket plan. The recently-announced Pepsi Max Pick 15 Plan, which starts at just $135 for a minimum of 15 games, also includes an Opening Day seat. All plans are currently available online at royals.com. Fans may also contact the Royals Sales Department by calling (816) 504-4040, option 2, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
