MLB Tickets

While the economy had dwindled, at least one source sees corporate ticket sales as solid, compared to 2008. According to on-demand sports and event ticket management software and services company TicketOS, utilization of corporate-owned ticket inventory across all North American sports venues was 69% for October, which is down from 71% in September, but up 31% from October 2008. Club and stadium seating use averaged 73% while suite seats averaged 67% for October. The NFL leads all major leagues with the highest corporate ticket utilization.

As the first table shows, MLB’s playoffs remain a popular use of corporate ticket dollars as evidence by Yankee Stadium, Dodger Stadium, Fenway Park , and Citizens Bank Park showing up in the top 8 venues by volume.
