Twins announce upcoming ticket plans

ST. PETERSBURG -- On Thursday, the Twins announced their season ticket prices for 2009, the club's final season in the Metrodome, and '10, the club's first season in their new ballpark: Target Field.

In '09 at the Metrodome, ticket prices will range from $139 to $3.09. When the club moves to Target Field, the prices will range from $275 to $10.

Along with releasing the prices, the Twins also unveiled the relocation process for season ticket-holders making the move from the Metrodome to Target Field. Season ticket priority will be determined by four factors:

• Account longevity: How many uninterrupted years as a season ticket-holder those fans have.

• Plan Type: What type of season ticket was held as of the 2009 season (full season vs. reduced plan).

• Account Dollar Value: The total value of season account for '09.

• Order Date: The original date of purchase by the fan.

Current Twins season ticket holders will be mailed a comprehensive relocation guide this week. It will include the club's relocation process, the Target Field seating chart, a sun/shade study, a FAQ section and a comparison of the Metrodome and Target Field.

The Twins will have a little over 27,000 season tickets priced at $20 or less next season at the Metrodome. That number decreases to 13,600 season tickets in Target Field priced at $20 or less per game. But the seating capacity at Target Field will be 40,000, compared to the Metrodome's current capacity of 46,632.

In addition to the season ticket sections offered at Target Field, the Twins announced that they will have six other areas that will be available exclusively on a single-game or group-ticket basis. Those include The Pavilion (300 seats); The Overlook (300 seats); the Right Field Bleachers (700 seats); Skyline Deck (1,000 seats); and the Batter's Eye (300 seats).

Single-game prices for '09 and '10 will be released at a later date.

"Few organizations in professional sports have as rich a history as the Twins in providing affordable family entertainment," Twins president Dave St. Peter said. "We are confident the new two-year season ticket pricing structure ensures the affordability of Twins baseball as we transition from the multipurpose Metrodome to one of the most intimate, urban ballparks in America."
