PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — World Series tickets cost about half as much in Houston as they do in Philadelphia.
Everyone agrees that demand is higher here because we haven’t seen a World Series in a while.
Best time to buy: “The best time for game one is Thursday afternoon, Thursday evening,” said TickPick’s Kyle Zorn.
TickPick analysts recommend holding off on buying. Depending on how well the Phils are playing, the prizes could go up or down.
You can get a seat at Minute Maid Park for around $700. Tickets here at home cost about $1,200.
“That could go up depending on how the first two games in Houston go,” Zorn said.
Prices can fluctuate by around 20-30%
Carol Brown turned down such an expensive offer from her son.
“He wanted to buy me a ticket but I wouldn’t let him. It’s too much money,” she said.
Others have already booked their flight.
“With the ticket prices, it just made more sense to have accommodation,” said Peter Giombetti.
Malvern native Giombetti and his dad are lifelong fans, leaving early Saturday and staying with family in Houston for Game 2.
“The post-resale price averaged half what it was in Philadelphia when we looked,” Giombetti said.
Phans of Philly organizes trips each season, offering tickets to games one and two and hotel accommodation for $1,800. Phillies Red will be seated by the Astros faithful.
“There’s not as much demand and hunger as there is with Philadelphia fans,” said Joe diBiaggio, who owns Phans of Philly. He’s out on Friday morning.
