Can I reenter the CWS if I leave?Written by Bozell
Re-entry is allowed during the College World Series for reserved and general admission seat tickets. Re-entry for reserved tickets is allowed through any gate. Re-entry for general admission tickets is through Gates 3 and 4, but is not guaranteed as once a fan leaves, they must return to the end of the GA line.
Does my baby need a ticket?Written by Laura Spaulding
Any child under the age of 24 months does not need a ticket.
How do I become a season-ticket holder?Written by Laura Spaulding
Unfortunately, the season-ticket waiting list is closed. The list was closed in 2003 and currently has more than 1,100 names on it. There is an annual renewal of 98%, which has led to, on average, 15-year wait. For example, for the 2013 CWS, we awarded tickets to those who signed up in late 1997.
How do I purchase a reserved ticket at the box office?Written by Bozell
Reserved tickets will be available at the box office every day there is a game. The box office opens at 10:00 a.m. daily. If there are two games you can purchase tickets for both games once you reach the ticket window. Each morning, the MECA staff will conduct a random drawing for placement in line starting at 9:00 a.m. This process helps to alleviate having to get in line early to secure your place and reduces the number of secondary-ticket sellers.
How do I purchase an advanced reserved ticket?Written by Laura Spaulding
The advance sale for reserved tickets will be held online at NCAA.com/CWS on Saturday, April 12 at 10:00 a.m. CT. You also may purchase reserved tickets from the NCAA fan-to-fan marketplace, Flash Seats. This process will be available in mid-May once season-ticket holders are mailed their tickets.
Fans also can purchase official NCAA Experience ticket & hospitality packages from PrimeSport, the official ticket and hospitality package provider of the NCAA. To purchase NCAA Experience hospitality with or without tickets to the games, click here .
How do I upgrade my general admission ticket to a reserved ticket?Written by Laura Spaulding
Based on availability of reserved seats, GA tickets may be upgraded to reserved seats by paying the difference in price between a reserved and GA ticket. Upgrades are available only at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office for that day of games only and are available as part of the same random-drawing process for reserved tickets. When upgrading general admission tickets to reserved tickets, the limit is four tickets.
How many tickets can I buy at the box office?Written by Laura Spaulding
Each person may buy up to four tickets for each game that is offered that day.
I see general admission tickets sold by secondary ticket markets (those sites not approved or guaranteed by the NCAA or CWS, Inc.). Why are the tickets listed so far above face value? What concerns should I have if/when I purchase these?Written by Laura Spaulding
Many secondary ticket markets sell general admission tickets because they are the only physical ticket that can be obtained in advance of the Series. The cost for a general admission ticket book sold officially by the NCAA and CWS, Inc. are $85 online for 10 tickets ($8.50 per ticket) plus shipping and handling. These books also are sold locally by many Omaha businesses and service clubs. Fans also may purchase individual general admission tickets at the box office for $11.50. Please keep in mind that due to the nature of general admission tickets, these tickets are not likely to sell out. So, there shouldn't be a rush by the fans to purchase quickly. We strongly encourage fans to purchase from an approved provider at NCAA.com/CWS . Finally, many secondary providers do not fully detail how the general admission ticket process works, so fans may be upset when they paid over face value or find it's not a guaranteed seat.
If I buy an ADA seat, how many additional tickets may I purchase to accompany me?Written by Bozell
When you purchase an ADA seat, you may buy up to three seats to accompany you.
Is it illegal to buy tickets from scalpers?Written by Laura Spaulding
No. However, according to Omaha Municipal Code it is unlawful for any person to resell or attempt to resell a ticket to an event at TD Ameritrade Park for an amount greater than the face value. It is unlawful to scalp tickets on Stadium property and anywhere within one-half mile of the Stadium. Ticket buyers should be especially cautious of buying tickets from scalpers as they are not a guaranteed ticket.
What forms of payment can I use at the box office?Written by Bozell
The box office accepts cash, credit and debit cards. No personal checks will be accepted.
