I’m sure that many of you have noticed, as I have, that the Mets are advertising their Empire Suites at Citi Field on SNY game broadcasts. There are several interesting issues here. What’s especially interesting is that the Mets announced in October 2008 that their luxury boxes had sold out.
If the boxes sold out last year and they’re on sale again now, what happened in between? Did the corporations that bought those boxes bail out (Citi pun intended)?
For those of you looking for information on the cost of a box for a game, if you have to ask… it’s too expensive for you. Seriously, I don’t know the price but my guess would be that it’s into the five figures for a game. Of course, it depends on the game that you want and how close the box is to home plate. But figure that you’d probably have to put up $20,000 for a game.
