Asheville Tourists Make Fun AFFORDABLE!

New policy at Asheville Tourists games in 2011. Kids five and under are now admitted FREE of charge. The previous policy was to allow free entrance to kids two and under.

ALSO: The Tourists will continue to offer its Family Four Packs once again in which purchasers receive four general admission tickets, four hot dogs, four Pepsi products and two popcorns to Sunday through Wednesday games, with the exception of July 4 and 5, for only $29. The lone requirement is buyers must purchase their tickets 24 hours in advance of the game.

Some other tickets are going DOWN IN PRICE!

Both the Bojangles Dugout Suite and the Clubhouse Suite have been restructured, resulting in lower ticket prices. The Bojangles Dugout Suite tickets will be $30 per seat instead of the previous $45. The $30 ticket includes first-row, on-field seating, a meal from Bojangles Chicken & Biscuits, and unlimited ballpark snacks and Pepsi products with seat service. The Clubhouse Suite tickets also will be $30, down from $40, and include a full meal from an Asheville Independent Restaurants (AIR) member, hot dogs, snacks and Pepsi products.

Otherwise, the Tourists’ ticket prices for box seats and general admission will remain the same as last year. Advance ticket prices will be $10 for box seats and $7 for general admission-a price that has remained the same since 2007-while game day prices will be one dollar more, respectively. Prices for senior citizens, military personnel and children age 6-12 are $8 for advance box seats and $6 for advance general admission, with day of game prices one dollar more.

Single-game tickets go on sale at the McCormick Field ticket office on Saturday, March 19, at 10 a.m. Every contest for the Tourists’ 2011 home season will be available, with the exception of the Fireworks Extravaganzas, slated for Monday, July 4, and Tuesday, July 5.
