PHILADELPHIA -- With six weeks remaining in the regular season and the Mariners in contention for their first playoff berth since 2001, Major League Baseball has granted permission for the club to begin offering tickets to potential postseason games at Safeco Field.
Mariners season-ticket holders have priority access to the initial offer, with the opportunity to purchase full or partial strips of tickets, depending on their plan. In addition, fans who make a deposit for new 2015 season tickets will also receive priority to purchase 2014 postseason tickets.
Current Mariners season-ticket holders were notified earlier this week about how they can secure their tickets for potential postseason games, including the American League Wild Card Game, AL Division Series, AL Championship Series and World Series. A potential tiebreaker game is not included in postseason strips.
Fans can make a non-refundable $500 deposit toward new 2015 full season, half-season, business or weekend plans, which will qualify them for the opportunity to purchase a full strip of postseason tickets. A non-refundable $250 deposit for new 16 Game Plans will provide the opportunity to purchase a partial strip of postseason tickets. All deposits will be applied to the cost of new 2015 season tickets.
The deadline for new deposits to qualify for this priority offer is Monday, Sept. 22. More information is available at mariners.com/15, or by calling 206-346-4001.
The Mariners will make an announcement at a later date about the sale of single-game tickets to potential postseason home games.
