Get your tickets: Prices dip for All-Star Game events

Author:

Good news for those looking to attend events around next Tuesday's MLB All-Star Game – they're slightly cheaper than they were a few weeks ago.

Tickets to this year's All-Star Game at Target Field have been on pace to be the most expensive on the secondary market (websites like StubHubCheap Tickets and Ticket King) in the past four seasons, Forbes reports, but there are still reasonably priced tickets available for some of the All-Star events.

Twins season ticket holders got first dibs on tickets to the All-Star Game. Two-thirds of the tickets to the game itself went to season ticket holders, as well as those who won a public lottery for the chance to buy tickets, some of whom may have sold tickets on the secondary market, the Pioneer Press reports. Other tickets went to corporate sponsors, MLB teams, owners and players, the Star Tribune notes.

Tickets were sold as a package, which includes entrance to FanFest, Sunday's Futures game and Legends and Celebrities softball game and Monday's Home Run Derby. Prices for the packages ranged from roughly $400 to $1,400, MPR News notes.

Now, tickets to the game are only available on secondary ticket websites or through scalpers. Prices remain pretty high for a ticket package (anywhere from $500 to $5,000 depending on the location of the seats), but many secondary market brokers have divided the packages, allowing fans to pick and choose what they'd like to attend.

This is good news for those who don't want to spend a small fortune on tickets to a game. Individual tickets to the All-Star Game range from $280 to over $2,000, while prices for other events have dropped significantly.

Ticket prices for the Home Run Derby dropped 25 percent last week, the Star Tribune reports. As of Monday, prices for the derby ranged from about $150 to upward of $1,000, depending on the seats and the ticket-selling website.

Tickets for other events, like the celebrity and futures games start at around $10, while entry to the FanFest at the Minneapolis Convention Center is going for $1.

Tom Patania, president of Select-A-Ticket, told the Star Tribune that it's a good time to shop because agents, sponsors and players are coming to town and more tickets are becoming available.

There are some events people can attend for free, such as the Red Carpet show, where players parade through town before Tuesday's game. Tickets to a free Imagine Dragons concert were also were up for grabs, but they sold out within minutes.
