Standing-room-only tickets planned for Braves’ first two home games


The Braves have identified areas in SunTrust Park where they plan to sell standing-room-only tickets for the new ballpark’s first two regular-season games April 14-15.

Braves President of Business Derek Schiller said an undetermined number of standing-room-only tickets for those games– more than 1,000 per game, he said — will go on sale April 10.

SunTrust Park’s 41,000 seats for both games are sold out except in still-available season-ticket packages.

Schiller said most of the standing-room-only tickets will be in an area he described as a “bridge” behind the outfield seats running from the top level of the Chop House restaurant in right field to underneath the center-field video board. The other standing-room tickets space will be behind some seating sections at the top of the main lower bowl, he said.

In addition to the first two regular-season games at the new stadium, Schiller said the Braves anticipate selling standing-room-only tickets for any other games that sell out of seats this season. According to a price list on the Braves’ ticketing website, the standing-room tickets will cost $20.

The Braves will play the San Diego Padres in the first series at SunTrust Park, April 14-16. Seats remain available for April 16, a Sunday afternoon game.
