The New York Mets are trying to appeal to last-minute fans with a Netflix-style subscription deal that allows fans to buy standing-room tickets to regular season home games for $39 a month.
The subscription is app-based, and any fans with an iPhone or Android can sign up. After signing up for the subscription, dubbed “Amazin’ Mets Pass,” fans cans download mobile tickets to 78 games throughout the season, a representative told The New York Post. With the tickets already downloaded on a phone, fans simply have to scan their mobile tickets at the gate. During weekdays, users also have the ability to upgrade to seated tickets.
Mets Senior Vice President of Ticket Sales Chris Zaber told The Post that the program targets millennials and “unconventional audiences.”
“It’s a great way to gain access to Citi Field at a low cost,” he said, noting that “even if you come to three games a month, it’s a great deal.”
The new deal follows the ongoing subscription-based trend over the past few years; just like Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, or Apple Music, the Amazin’ Mets Pass will renew each month. According to the Mets’ Facebook page, there are a limited amount of passes available.
