Twins Ticket Price History

The Minnesota Twins have been here since 1961 and over 81 million fans (through 2012)have come through the turnstiles at the Met, the Metrodome and now Target Field to watch the Twins play ball and most of them have bought tickets. I am not going to review season ticket prices or suites on the page at this time, all I am looking at are the single game ticket prices that the average fan would have to pay if they wanted to attend a game.

What I am looking at are the categories of tickets (box seat, grandstand, etc.) and the published prices of Twins tickets over the years. The category names changed numerous times over the years and when you get to 2006 then you start to see the Twins utilize “dynamic/variable” ticket pricing and in 2012 the Twins introduced the Minnesota fans to “demand-based” ticket pricing which makes the published single game ticket prices obsolete except for a week or so when single game tickets go on sale, generally in mid-February. The tables and charts below will provide you with a pictorial look at the number of ticket categories, the average ticket prices, and the lowest and highest ticket prices for each year.

You will also find images of tickets for some of the past seasons. In some cases some of these tickets may be “phantom” tickets which means that the tickets were printed for a game or series of games in which the Twins did not participate. If a team is in the playoff hunt tickets need to be printed and sold to the fans and sometimes the team falls out of the race and fans have “phantom” tickets on their hands.

2014 – Target Field

2014 MLB Fan Cost Index

The Minnesota Twins have lost 90 or more games for three consecutive years and although individual game ticket prices were not lowered for the 2014 season, ticket prices at least remained flat from the previous season for the first time since the 1997 and 1998 seasons.

The variable ticket pricing plan that was instituted in 2006 with 2 tiers jumped to 3 tiers in 2009 and 5 tiers in 2013 remains unchanged in 2014. The tiers are still called “extra value”, “value”, “select”, “premium” and “elite” and the number of games in each of the categories did change slightly from 2013. The “extra value” games are the cheapest priced games and there are 12 of them this year versus 8 last year but all of these games fall in the colder months of April and September. The next step up is the “value” plan and the number of games in this category dropped from 16 last season to just 8 in 2014. The “select” category is pretty much the middle of the line and this is pretty much the Twins baseline for ticket prices. The number of games in this category increased this year to 40 games from 32 last year. The next step up is the “premium” games and the Twins decreased the number of games in this category from 16 to 9. The top of the line category is the “Elite” games and this category of games jumped from 9 to 12 games. It would be interesting to find out how the Twins determine for example what games fall into the “Elite” category. The world champion Boston Red Sox are in town in May but those mid-week games are only classified as “select” games probably because school is still in session. The four Yankee games are of course “Elite” as are two games against the Detroit Tigers on a late August week-end but 6 of the 12 “Elite” games are against the mighty Chicago White Sox although each 3-game series falls on a week-end in June and July. The Twins strategy this years seems to be to put half the games in the middle “select” tier and then split the other 41 games fairly evenly between the lower tiers and upper tiers.

Individual tickets went on sale February 22 but those prices were only in effect for one day because as of February 23 demand-based pricing kicked in for the rest of the year and the Twins will determine ticket prices on a daily basis based on demand, weather and market conditions.

There are 12 (15% of games but all in April and September) “extra value” games, 8 (10% of games) “value” games, 40 (49% of the games) “select” games, 9 (11% of games) “premium” games, and 12 (15%) “elite” games.

The Twins did tinker with ticket prices within the various tiers but in the end it comes out to basically a wash although the lower classified tiers dropped a bit in average price and the high-end went up a bit. The average ticket price for a “extra value” game in 2013 was $16.68 and this year it dropped to $15.68. The average ticket price for a “value” game in 2013 was $23.47 and this year it dropped to $23.37.The average ticket price for a “select” game in 2013 was $30.68 and this year it remains at $30.68.The average ticket price for a “premium” game in 2013 was $37.89 and this year it goes up to $38.00.The average ticket price for an “elite” game in 2013 was $44.68 and this year it went up to $45.68. If you attend an “elite” game you will pay about three times as much for your seat as you would if you attended an “extra value” game. Same seat, same game of baseball but the tier designation determines how much money stays in your wallet.

2012 – Target Field

2012 MLB fan cost index

In addition to dynamic/variable ticket pricing that was instituted in 2006 with 2 tiers, then went to 3 tiers in 2009, the Twins introduced “Demand-Based Pricing” in 2012. The Twins standard variable pricing as shown in the price list below only applied to single game tickets sold between February 25 – March 8. Starting March 9th the team applied demand-based pricing for all single game tickets sold during the 2012 season. Demand-based pricing allows the Twins to set ticket prices on a daily basis according to market demand. Season ticket holders were not impacted by demand-based pricing.

 20 (25%) are “value” games, 38 (47%) “select” games & 23 (28%)  “premium” games

    Hi John, thanks for the great information provided here! I am a doctoral student in economics at the University of Minnesota and am planning to write a dissertation on the effects of dynamic ticket pricing in MLB on consumer welfare. I was wondering

    (a) where you obtained this data
    (b) where I could go to determine which historical games were considered “premium” etc.
    (c) whether there a central source where I can find historical ticket prices for other teams as well.

    Hope this info isn’t too much of a hassle to dig up. Thanks so much!
