Phillies single game tickets went on sale yesterday and the team sold a staggering 70,000 — a new record for first day sales.
15 of 81 home games have already sold out, with over 3.3 million total tickets already selling. The Phillies will look to continue their club-record 123-game home sellout streak into the 2011 season.
Last season, the Phillies broke their total attendance record, set the previous season. With the Four Horsemen leading the way, it’s likely that record is broken again. They still have some tickets to sell though.
“Tickets to the majority of our home games are still available,” John Weber, the team’s vice president of ticket sales said in a statement released by the team. “We continue to encourage our fans to purchase soon, as our remaining ticket inventory is limited for many games.””
Last season the Phillies led the National League with total attendance at 3,647,249. CBP was filled to a major league-high 103.5 percent of capacity.
Hard to even remember the not that far away days of a cavernous, echoing Vet. Tickets are much harder to come by nowadays, but it’s unlikely too many are complaining.
