Play ball? No chance at £3,000 per ticket!
TICKETS for the Major League Baseball games in London next year are being touted for over £3,000 each, despite going on sale yesterday for less than a 10th of the price. Regular-season games are being held in Europe for the first time ever, when the Boston Red Sox play their rivals the New York Yankees at the London Stadium on June 29 and 30. However, MLB fans were left frustrated when the first round of tickets went on sale yesterday, and were very quickly available on secondary ticketing sites at vastly inflated prices. Several fans complained on social media about the ‘complete shambles’, with many highlighting that it would be cheaper to fly to the US and watch a game there than it would be to attend the London games. One ticket for the game on June 29 is being sold on StubHub for £3,037, even though the face value for that seat was £270. And the cheapest ticket currently on StubHub is £178, for a seat that would have originally cost £45-60.
