Padres Trying to Keep Dodgers Fans Out of Petco Park This Season! Will LA Take Over SD in 2021?



The budding rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres continues to gain steam and by the looks of it, the San Diego Padres are trying to keep Dodgers fans out of Petco Park this season.

Padres CEO Erik Greupner was asked if Dodgers fans would be able to buy tickets at Petco Park and the answer is sure to upset many true blue faithful.

“For them to try to get a ticket, it’s probably going to be a pretty significant premium. Maybe they stay in L.A. and enjoy watching the Dodgers play there.”

We discuss the Padres trying prevent Dodgers fans from their annual take over of Petco Park this season and tell you why it would be a smart business decision for the Padres to have as many Dodgers fans as possible at Petco. Plus, Dodger Twitter reacts to the Padres.

  1. Is the padres GM out of HIS COTTON PICKING MIND!!!! Who says a thing like that!!!! What a shallow thing to say!!!! The whole padres organization ARE CRY BABIES!!!! SO UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!

  2. At this time, Petco Park is estimated to be at 25% capacity this season. Padres fans should get priority to those seats. Still, it’s a FREE country. I am a SD native and a Padres fan. I have met a LOT of cool Dodger fans on the SD trolley and at Petco, most are nice people. I would rather see seats filled with opposing fans than remain empty, the Padres need the money. The infamous quote above from Padres CEO Erik Greupner doesn’t tell the whole story….the Padres (like most teams) may not be selling tickets to individual games. That’s the problem for Dodger fans. Most Dodger fans do not want to buy Padres Season Tickets.

  3. I would file a restraint of trade lawsuit against the Padres and the GM specifically. How many high profile Dodger fan lawyers would take this case Pro Bono. Nuff said. Then you’ll have to ask how can they tell the difference. Stupid

  4. The Padres front office is just throwing a child like temper tantrum because the Dodgers out draw them every single year, and even out draw them in their own stadium whenever we play there. They’re also not quite over the fact that the Dodgers swept them aside last year on their way to a world championship.

    • Really no one cares about the dodgers sweeping the padres in the NLDS. I expecting it, given our two best starters were out and our bullpen was heavily taxed in the card series.
      Why wouldn’t padre season ticket holders get first dibs over the general public? At 20% capacity, that is the mandate, as it is for probably every other club. Silly article.

      • Silly article started by your silly CEO! And your excuses for getting you arsses kicked by us in the NLDS is just as silly!

      • No one cares that the Dodgers ended your Padres postseason run? Come on, that statement is so disingenuous. If memory serves me right (which I am certain that it does), there was a lot of “Slam-Diego” hype leading up to that series; so, losing to us must have been very disappointing (regardless of excuses.)

        The games between the Dodgers and the Padres should be a lot of fun whether we can get tickets at Petco or not.

  5. Dodgers fans quit whining! Grouper didn’t say you can’t come he said the tickets for single game may not be available. Not available for Padres fans, Dodgers fans, Yankee fans, insert your team of choice here fans! Don’t be so uptight, you enjoyed coming down to SD to watch games and if you want to continue to do so I have no problem with that. Prices are going to be crazy on the resale market due to demand and lack of availability. Doesn’t matter if you are a Dodgers fan or any fan.

    • Well we are so glad that YOU dont have a problem with US coming to San Diego and spending money. Grouper as he is so affectionately called clearly said that he wants to make it harder for Dodger fans to get tickets to Petco by forcing them to pay through the nose at third party sites so maybe se would stay in LA to watch “our” Dodgers I wonder how other businesses are going deal with the loss of revenue because Grouper is acting like a teenager. Silly boy that he is
