Scoring individual tickets to the Marlins’ opener will be much like banking on winning the Florida Lottery.
As of Wednesday morning, more than 52,000 fans had registered for a chance to purchase up to two tickets for Opening Night. They will be vying for as few as 1,000 tickets for the April 4 game against the World Series-champion Cardinals, although the Marlins haven’t specified the actual number that will be made available.
Online registration will continue through Feb. 20. Winners will be announced Feb. 23. There is no charge to register for this opportunity.
There are other opportunities to purchase tickets for Opening Night, including the newly added 10-Game Pack. The Opening Night 10-Game pack is on sale at marlins.com, with prices starting at $250 for 10 games, including the opener.
Meanwhile, tickets to the two exhibitions against the Yankees at Marlins Park will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at Marlins.com. For the April 1 game, approximately 25,000 tickets will be available, with about 30,000 tickets for the April 2 game.
