As in previous seasons, the Twins will apply variable pricing to all tickets for the 2013 season. Per-game prices for both single-game and season tickets will be expanded from three tiers to five tiers and will be based on factors such as time of year, date and opponent. The new five-tier variable pricing structure will apply to all single-game tickets sold from Feb. 16-22.
Beginning Feb. 23, the Twins will apply demand-based pricing to all seating sections of Target Field for the 2013 season. Demand-based pricing, which prices tickets according to fan demand, is a practice that has become standard across the sports and entertainment industries. The system, which was implemented at Target Field in 2011, applies only to single-game ticket sales and does not affect Season Ticket Holder pricing.
The Twins will mark their season opener with a home game at Target Field on Monday, April 1 with a game against the American League Champion Detroit Tigers. The Twins will then play two more games against the Tigers on April 3 and April 4.
Other home schedule highlights include a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox (May 17-19) and a four-game series against the New York Yankees (July 1-4).
Interleague play has been expanded for the 2013 season to include additional games, which will be played starting in April. The team’s 20-game interleague schedule includes visits by the New York Mets (April 12-14), the Miami Marlins (April 22 and 23), the Milwaukee Brewers (May 29 and 30) and the Philadelphia Phillies (June 11-13).
The Twins will also face the Houston Astros, who will join the American League Western Division in 2013, for three home games (August 2-4).
The Twins will close out the 2013 season at Target Field with a seven-game homestand against the Detroit Tigers (Sept. 23-25) and the Cleveland Indians (Sept. 26-29).
Through three seasons at Target Field, the Twins have attracted a total of 9,168,101 fans (an average of 37,729 per game).
