The St. Louis Cardinals are among the most popular baseball teams ever. The team prides itself as being one of the best in the country, and the fans show their support and allegiance to the franchise by buying tickets to the games to watch their favorite team play. The team has been around for over one hundred and twenty years, so there's definitely a lot of tradition behind the team's history. The team has won 10 championships with the last one in 2006. The team has also won the National League pennant seventeen times!
Buying tickets online is a popular choice for many Cardinals fans because of the convenience (and sometimes discounts). Here's how you get Cardinal tickets online. Luckily, you don't need to be a bishop or a monsignor to watch the games (or a Cardinal for that matter)! All you have to be is a roaring Cardinals fan.
- Visit the official ticketing Web site of the St. Louis Cardinals. The site has an online game calendar that allows you to purchase tickets to single games. Simply click on the "T" icon and choose which arch or section of the stadium you want to sit in. As you would have probably guessed, the closer you are to the field, the more expensive the tickets are. The most expensive ones are the seats behind the batter (usually around $250) while the farthest seats sell for less than $20.
- You may also buy tickets in tandem with other promotions. The St. Louis Cardinals offer special rates for tickets to the games packaged with tickets to the nearby Six Flags amusement park. The ticket costs $50 for both tickets and will sit the patron somewhere in the middle of the stadium. It's good enough for a bird's eye view of what's going on at the pitch.
- The mother lode is of course the season tickets. With a lot of games on the game calendar, a die-hard fan should definitely have a lot of money and free time to watch all 81 home games played at the Cardinal Stadium! The tickets are cheaper than usual per-game, but since you're multiplying them by a huge amount, it still adds up to a very big sum. A one thousand dollar deposit is required to reserve season tickets.
Payments for the tickets are usually done via credit cards. The Web site has a very strict and intelligent system to detect fraudulent sign ups. Most credit cards are accepted so it should be no problem when buying online. Just be sure to have your complete details at hand.
Buying tickets online has become a huge convenience, especially since it lets fans buy tickets to their favorite sporting events at the comfort of your own home or office. Arguably, lining up for tickets might be part of the fun. However, with today's busy and hectic lifestyles, fans are choosing convenience, and would rather experience the fun at the stadium itself, watching the Cardinals play.
