DENVER — Demand is so high for opening day tickets for the Colorado Rockies Monday, that the team is using a lottery for the first time for “Rockpile” tickets.
Rockpile seats are the 4th level seats high above center field. They cost $4. They’re only $1 for children under 12 and seniors over 55.
The lottery to purchase Rockpile tickets is in place for opening day only. It takes place on Saturday, April 7.
Here are the details from the Rockies:
— 7 a.m. Saturday, April 7 Parking lot A opens.
— 7:30-9:30 a.m. Outside the Rockpile ticket windows, randomly numbered wristbands are distributed.
— 10 a.m. Opening-day Rockpile tickets go on sale.
— A limit of four tickets per person can be purchased that day by those selected in the drawing.
— Opening-day Rockpile tickets will be sold only by this ticket lottery system at Coors Field on April 7.
— Under this system, there is no advantage to being first in line for a wristband. All fans receiving a wristband will have an equal opportunity to be selected in the random drawing.
Rockpile tickets normally go on sale 2-and-a-half hours before game time on each game day at the Rockpile ticket windows at Gate A. A limited number of Rockpile tickets are available for advance purchase at Rockies tickets outlets.
Opening day Rockpile tickets are only available at Coors Field on Saturday, April 7.
