Dallas and Phoenix Fueling Demand for World Series Tickets

  • Ticket demand for World Series games in Dallas and Phoenix is higher than last year's games.
  • The average resale price for a ticket to Game 1 is over $1,200.
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

While the Texas-Arizona World Series matchup might not be what MLB and Fox Sports executives would have chosen, Rangers and Diamondbacks fans are showing out for the occasion, creating high demand for tickets on the secondary market.

The average resale price for a sold-out Game 1 at Globe Life Field in Dallas one day out was $1,273, according to data SeatGeek provided to Front Office Sports. That’s a 9% increase from the eve of the Houston Astros hosting the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of the 2022 World Series.

“There is no postseason fatigue here,” said Oliver Marvin, director of business operations at SeatGeek, MLB’s official ticket marketplace.

The Rangers are seeking their first-ever World Series title, while the Diamondbacks are looking for their second in their first trip back to the playoffs since 2017.

Monday’s Game 3 will also be a hot ticket as the series shifts to Arizona’s Chase Field. The average resale price for that game is currently $1,080, and the get-in price is $735. “We’re seeing a lot of ticket demand from both markets,” Marvin added.

A competitive first two games in Dallas could make ticket prices soar even higher throughout the series. 

The Rangers are slight — but not overwhelming — favorites to win the World Series. Both teams went to seven games in the ALCS and NLCS before punching their ticket to baseball’s championship round.
