Yasiel Puig promised Game 7 would be played at home in Dodger Stadium. He didn’t let us down. After an exhilarating, heart-stopping, record-setting five games, the Los Angeles Dodgers bested the Houston Astros on Tuesday night to force just one more game in the World Series—and it will be played right here at home.
Watching the Boys in Blue play a winner-takes-all seventh game at Dodger Stadium could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Angelenos.
This will be the first time in Dodgers history that a Game 7 has been played in Chavez Ravine. (The last time the Dodgers played and won a World Series was 27 years ago—in Oakland—and the last time they won a World Series at home was in 1963 in Game 4.)
Those hoping to take advantage of the opportunity to see the Dodgers clinch the championship still have an (expensive) opportunity to do so. There are plenty of tickets for sale on resale sites. But how much will it cost?
Real-time data from VividSeats show that ticket prices for the final game of the championship series start at about $1,119, while StubHub has tickets from $1,045. The best seats, in the Dugout Club behind home base, are for sale for about $9,000 to $35,000.
World Series ticket prices for games at Dodgers Stadium have been off the charts.
Game 6 tickets were cheaper, because they came on the heels of a Dodgers loss, but even they were still expensive. According to TicketIQ, the prices of tickets for Game 6 that were sold on resale sites dropped nearly 50 percent Monday night, with lower priced tickets listed from about $535.
It makes sense that the tickets have commanded high prices, as the Dodgers have one of the largest markets in baseball, according to Fox.
At the opening game of the World Series, and estimated 54,000 fans filled the stands, a Dodgers ticketing staffer told Curbed. That means there were roughly 2,000 empty seats in the 56,000-seat stadium.
Even though seats remain, ticket sales have been brisk. Ticket reseller Gametime told ESPN that by Friday morning, sales for Game 1 at Dodger Stadium had set a new record for single-event revenue at the nearly five-year-old company.
