Don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on Pittsburgh Pirates tickets? Relatable. If you’re a Pirate fan hoping to catch a few games and not break the bank, these top 5 tips will help you save money this summer!

#1. Go to a Weekday Game

It’s not too surprising that baseball game ticket prices rise over the weekend because that’s when many fans have a day off to catch a game. The flip side to this is that weekday games can be comparatively cheaper. For instance, you can watch the Pirates in action against the Giants on Friday, August 1 or go the next day and pay nearly four times as much for a ticket! In addition to the day of the week, the start time is also important. Afternoon games tend to be the least expensive.

#2. Utilize SeatGeek’s Deal Score Feature

Pirates fans who spend their hard-earned cash on game tickets no doubt want to make sure they’re getting their money’s worth. That’s why it’s a good idea to use Deal Score, a tool developed by SeatGeek to help rank the value of a ticket. The ranks are based on historical prices for the team and venue, the row location, the expected sightline from the section, and the quality of the other available tickets for the event. By using this feature. Pirates fans will ensure that they’re getting the most bang-for-their-buck when buying tickets.

#3. Buy Tickets at the Last Minute

Just as with food nearing an expiration date, tickets right before a big game will see a drop in price as sellers look to offload them. If you don’t mind having a lower inventory to choose from, waiting until nearly the last-minute will lead to savings in the form of discounted tickets. One thing to keep in mind is this works best for those who only need a couple of tickets. Those buying for a large group might be at a disadvantage if there’s a limited number of seats left.

#4. Check Out the Away Games

It’s true that seeing your favorite team in action on their home turf is the gold standard, but catching an away game can lead to real savings. Currently, the starting ticket prices for the Pirates’ away games are about $10-$20 less than their games at PNC Park. The money you save by traveling to away games could be put towards having a fun out-of-town adventure. Definitely a win-win!
