Boston Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List

Buy and Sell Boston Red Sox Season TicketsYou want coveted season tickets to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park? Considering the Red Sox cap season tickets at 21,500 and Fenway Park has been sold out for many years, the best way to get the opportunity to buy Red Sox season tickets is by joining the Boston Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List. The Boston Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List may not be the largest waiting list in Major League Baseball, that distinction goes to the Cubs, but it definitely requires one of the longest wait times to buy season tickets. According to Boston Red Sox Ticket Services, there are currently just over 7,000 patrons on the Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List. For the last several years, the renewal rate for Red Sox season ticket holders has been above 98%, among the highest in the league. At that rate, about 400 Red Sox season tickets are not renewed in a given year. Since most patrons purchase tickets in pairs, about 200 lucky fans advance through the Boston Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List yearly. I estimate at least a twenty year wait time to buy Red Sox season tickets if my calculations are correct. The only way to join the Boston Red Sox Season Ticket Waiting List is to call the Red Sox Ticket Office at 877.REDSOX9 and speak to a ticket specialist.

Red Sox have a season ticket waitlist then a season ticket upgrade list. Once you get your foot in the door you get a 10-game plan then you go to the season ticket upgrade list.

So what I don't understand is if 200 pairs of tix don't get renewed annually, why doesn't even that small amount at least trickle through to other season ticket holders... meaning 200 don't renew and 200 people with worse seats get the seats that weren't renewed and then those 200 peoples seats then go to people with worse seats and then their seats become available etc. It seems that when 200 sets of tix don't get renewed the Sox give them out to friends and family rather than upgrading even a few people that are eligible.

Btw, I wish a national league team would come to Boston. There's so much demand for tickets that even a newbie NL team can prosper...

I wish you could access a list directory even if its 5000 people long. Then you could at least see where your at... or not at.

not to mention spring training season tickets has a 5 year wait list my aunt lives in fort myers after having lived in Boston for years and she still has two more years before spring training tickets

Matt said...

Before any new tickets are offered, the current holders have first dibs at upgrading. You get in with the lower end tickets. You may never even get offered the premium seats in a lifetime. This is because Fenway is the greatest ball park ever.

How does one go about seeing where you are on the list? My sonInlaw has been on it for 10 years... Come on!!!!

Hate to break it to you Patty but there is no chance your son in law has been on the waitlist for 10 years or he would have already been offered tickets.

My waitlist email from April 2009 states that everyone who signed up through October 13, 2004 had been offered tickets as of that email. And that was two years ago...I'm guessing your son in law has been on the wait list for MAX 6 years.

Ya.....I got in in like 2003 and I have had a ten man plan for around 4 years now. Sadly though as stated above....even though 400 tix a year don't renew I have been stuck in the same outfield grandstand seats for every year. But I am in....so I am happy.

As of the Spring of 2011, they had offered tickets to people that had joined the ticket waiting list through March 2005.

When the Sox say they have offered tickets to everyone who joined the list prior to a certain date, that includes offering 10 game packages. It does not mean that they have been offered season tickets. I have been on the list since November of 2004 and while I have a 10 game pack, I have not been offered season tickets.

Just got called today for 10 game plan. I joined the wait list right after 2004 world series ended. So approx. 8 year wait period. I bought the X package Tuesday & Friday nite games. had my choice of right field box which i don't like turning my head all night, Grandstand & Bleachers. Bleachers was best seating for me as im watching game straight on and got 2 Aisle seats. :-) Im Happy! Good Luck

I signed up for the red sox season ticket waitlist in 2003 which was the first year for the waitlist. After declining the 10 man package for a few years they told me it was required and I'd need to submit for an upgrade later. I got 10 man tickets in 2007. This year I have been awarded full 81 game tickets and had the option of getting them in the bleachers, right field box, and the pavillion club (for a whopping $28,000). Seeing how I'm not a millionaire I opted for bleacher seats for the year and I have first priority every year to move up in the park if the finances work out. Just in case anyone else is on the wait list and wanted some info.

We signed up for the waitlist end of 2007. Just got an email this week about opportunity to buy (first time we have been contacted) - the email mainly mentioned 10 game plans, but we were excited to score a 20 game plan for 4 seats in the coca-cola pavillion. We have sat in that section before and though they are pretty high up, have a really good view of the whole game. This is just right for us- there is a good mix of weekend games included (also the 100th anniversary game) and the whole family can go - we wouldn't know what to do with more games than this.
When I signed up for the waitlist, my husband thought it was a huge waste of time and money - thought we wouldn't start out with anything better than bleacher seats, and no more than 2 seats - but now he is so happy! Good luck.

I went on the waiting list in August 2008 and I just got notification last week that I could purchase 10-game and 20-game season tickets. It took me a little over 3.5 years to make it through the waiting list.

To the person who got tickets in the Coca Cola Pavillion: my two tickets are there too!

is every seat reserved for season ticket holders?

I just got offered a 62 game plan and an 80 game one after being on the list for a few years. that probably has something to do with the fact that they are horrible this year. i called last year and wasnt even close to the top of the list. i could only imagine the panic they are going through if this many people arent renewing.

Anonymous said...

I signed up ether last year or the year before that cant remember but i still got a couple of more years to go. Unless they keep sucking then it might be sooner.

I've been on list since April 2008 and I'm still waiting.

On wait list for 5 years and was just offered tix this year. They offer a 10 game plan loaded w/ April/May weeknight games. Nice way of showing appreciation to fans that wait 5 years for tix. Tough team to root for these days

Do the tickets make you any money?

I just entered the list and they said they have offered to everyone who had asked for it through summer of 2008
