Tickets for the 2019 World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Premier12 have gone on sale, with prices ranging from $92 to $570.
The international baseball event in Guadalajara, Mexico, which is a 2020 Olympic qualifier, has begun ticketing the Group A opening round to be staged at the 16,500-seat Estadio Charros de Jalisco.
More than 96,000 tickets will be made available for the six games between November 2 and 8 to be played at the home of Mexican Pacific League (LMP) professional baseball club Charros de Jalisco.
Fans can get a 10 per cent discount on an early-bird promotion if they purchase tickets in June, while tickets purchased between July and September will see a five per cent discount.
Charros season ticket holders will receive an addition discount of five per cent.
WBSC president Riccardo Fraccari said: “Fans in Mexico and around the world have been waiting for this day so they could secure their tickets and be present at what is not only the most exciting international baseball competition of the year, but also one of the top international sports events on the 2019 calendar.
“I am confident that with great hosts like the Charros, who share a vision to evolve baseball into a major global sport, this edition will eclipse all numbers of the successful inaugural Premier12 in 2015.”
Ticket sales surpassed 235,000 for the inaugural WBSC Premier12 in 2015.
Salvador Quirarte Villaseñor, president of the Premier12 Guadalajara 2019 Organising Committee, said: “We are working hard so that the spectators at the stadium and those watching around the world will have a great impression of the city and country of Mexico.
“And we are confident that the Premier12 will exceed WBSC’s expectations and benchmarks with regard to attendance, economic impact and viewership, helping the sport of baseball to shine at the world level.”
