Dodgers to Hold Lottery For Opportunity to Buy Opening Day Tickets

Dodgers fans will have to get lucky if they want to go to the home opener.



The good news is that the Dodgers will have fans in the stands when they open up at home in April. The bad news is that it will be just over 11,000 seats with a very limited opportunity to buy those tickets. 

The team announced their ticket policy for the first couple of weeks of the season via email. In that email, the Dodgers told season-ticket holders that they would have the chance to buy 14-game packages up through June as they wait for things to get back to normal for attendance. 

Part of that announcement also said the team would hold a lottery for Opening Day. Fans hoping to buy tickets to the April 9th home opener will have to enter a lottery in order to buy them. That lottery pick is set to take place sometime in the very near future.

The Dodgers have not yet released the exact dates as of today. Those tickets will be sought after for a number of reasons, including the fact that no one has been to a game at Dodger Stadium since 2019. The renovations are also in, and the team will get their World Series ring in a ceremony prior to the game.

If you are not able to get tickets in the lottery pick, be ready to pay an arm and a leg on the third-party market. Some Dodgers tickets have been posted by season-ticket holders for thousands of dollars until the team announced there wouldn’t be season-tickets for the first part of the year.
