Mets launch innovative standing room ticket package

The New York Mets are offering a unique ticket package via a smartphone app. For $39 (€34) per month, customers can download the “Amazin’ Mets Pass” on Apple and Android smartphones. A subscription to the app will give fans access to 78 games this season, via mobile ticketing that can be redeemed at any time.

The package, first reported by The New York Post will also allow fans to upgrade to seats for games between Monday and Thursday.

“Citi Field has a lot of great options for standing room-only ticket holders. There’s the Shea Bridge and there are great food offerings. There are a lot of fun things to see and do,” Mets senior vice-president of ticket sales Chris Zaber told The Post.

A subscription to the app will allow for ticket downloads for all Mets home games except the two Citi Field appearances of the crosstown rival Yankees and  opening day.
