Several of the Mets beat writers have been posting today about Citi Field tours that start tomorrow. You can register at the Mets official site for tours that begin tomorrow. You can also call the Mets box office at 718-507-TIXX. When I read those posts I was thinking about registering. But if you read the Mets site they’re advertising these “tours” as seating tours for people that are thinking about buying season tickets.
The Mets have really gotten creative with their marketing this season. You would think that a new stadium would sell itself. Its really a sign of the times that the Mets have to work this hard to sell tickets at Citi Field. The economy is so bad, for so many people, that the Mets have to resort to these “tours” to sell season ticket plans. This is on top of the Mets selling only April and May single game tickets on March 15.
I think it’s clear that the Mets have been affected by the economy in the same way that many of us have.
