The World Series has launched, but some people are complaining tickets are ‘too expensive’ – so how much are they setting baseball fans back?

The 2022 Major League Baseball season wraps up over the next week when the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies meet in the World Series. Last week, the Phillies advanced to the World Series, beating the Padres to win the NLCS 4-1, and the Astros swept the Yankees 4-0 in the ALCS.

This is a long time coming for the Phillies as the team hasn’t made it to the World Series in 14 years, since they won it all in five games over the Tampa Bay Rays in 2008.

How much are World Series tickets?

There are tickets still available for Games 2 to 7, if purchasing them from Vivid Seats – but those who buy tickets for playoff games that do not occur would get a full refund, according to the terms and conditions.

Tickets, however, will set baseball fans back hundreds, as on Vivid Seats, tickets for the game today (Game 2) that are still available start at $442 – and go up to $4,190.

The prices for Game 3 are even steeper, starting at $819 and rising to $7,550. Game 4 tickets would set fans back at least $1,038 and Game 5 tickets start at $896.

Fans say World Series tickets are ‘too expensive’

Although it’s an exciting time, some people have said the ticket prices are ‘too expensive’ and they won’t be able to go see their favorite baseball teams play.

One fan even joked that tickets are so expensive no one is doing ticket giveaway competitions.
