Be prepared to pay more for the best seats in the house when the new Yankee Stadium opens next season. The club released ticket prices for the new stadium yesterday. Fans can expect to pay $75-$100 for some seats in the outfield, while bleacher seats will remain the same as they were this year at $12. The 122 best seats in the Legends section (see the dark blue in the graphic and associated table) will run from $500-$2,500. Sections 115-125 â€“ the next best field level seats behind the Legends section will run $325.
Even with the exorbitant prices, the Yankees are easily selling full season equivalents. As reported by Ronald Blum of The AP:
In all, the Yankees have sold more than 3,500 of approximately 4,300 premium seats on the field, main and terrace levels, chief operating officer Lonn Trost said Friday.
"Other than those 4,300 seats, which are going to subsidize everybody else, the prices are not" being raised significantly, Trost said. "And remember, 24,000-plus seats will have no price increase at all."
In a sign that season ticket sale demand is high, a very limited number of sections will be offered under 41-game or 20-game partial season plans.
One section of the Field level, two in the Main level, the majority of the Terrace level, and Grandstands will be available for the flexible plans. Cost above the season-ticket level will range from a high of $10 to no price increase in the Grandstands.
Note that these prices are for full or partial season ticket plans. Single game ticket prices have not yet been released.
