This is a Fall Classic that will be unlike any we’ve ever seen. Due to Covid-19, the MLB has elected to have the brand-new Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers, play host to the entire NLCS and World Series, in order to help maintain a postseason “bubble” of sorts, and do what it can to keep the players healthy and able to compete.
Both franchises give their fans plenty of hope that they will be catching their favorite squad during their run to a World Series championship, which will keep ticket demand and prices high and prompts the question: how can you get cheaper World Series tickets?

How Can I Get World Series Tickets Directly Through the League?
In non-Covid years, teams will send around World Series presale offers to fans who have partial or season ticket packages for that season, which is the best way to get early access to extremely in-demand tickets like ones for the World Series. For this year, World Series Tickets went on sale on MLB.com on October 6th, and sold out entirely in about 90 minutes. Only 11,550 were available for the games that will be held at Globe Life Field, and tickets are only available to purchase in “pods” of four in order to enforce social distancing among fans.
How to Get Sold Out World Series Tickets
If you weren’t able to secure tickets through any presales or general sales for the World Series, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Tickets can still be purchased from secondary marketplaces, although the prices will not be at face value. With these games being the highest stakes of any that will occur in any given season, market prices are anticipated to be on the higher side, but that doesn’t mean that good deals can’t be had – if you know where to look.
Why Should I Buy Tickets for the World Series on TickPick?
Purchasing your tickets through TickPick is almost always going to be a cheaper option for major events like the World Series, where prices are as high as they’ll be for an MLB game all year due to incredible demand. It’s cheaper-to-significantly cheaper to secure tickets through TickPick over competitors like StubHub simply because of TickPick’s no-fee pricing structure that saves buyers 10% over our major competitor for the same seats.
World Series Ticket Prices on StubHub
Below you can see StubHub’s price for a four-pack of seats to Game 1 of the World Series in Section 229, Row 9 as of Tuesday, 10/13. This price at checkout is showing as $508 per ticket (after they tack on their fees – the price before they add their service fees was initially showing as $408). When shopping on competing sites, you’ll want to make sure to pay very close attention to the prices as they change during the checkout process, once they’ve added on their service fees. You can also utilize filters that show the total price after fees are applied, though sometimes that price is not exactly accurate, as those are just “estimated” fees. The price per ticket jumps from a (relatively) palatable $1,632 all the way to $2,141, which amounts to an incredibly-high service fee of over 30%(!) per ticket that they tack on in order to drastically increase their profit margin. Now, compare that with the checkout page below for the exact same tickets on TickPick, whose price displays as $416 per ticket from start to finish. While prices may initially appear higher on TickPick, they will ultimately be much cheaper and save the buyer money at checkout, as there are NEVER any deceptive service fees tacked on.
World Series Ticket Prices on TickPick
Purchasing the same four-pack of tickets here on TickPick for $1,664 total saves a buyer $477 over purchasing that same exact pod on StubHub for $2,141.34 total. Keep in mind that these aren’t even among the most expensive seats to this game, so that price (and savings) can be extrapolated many times over as the seats get better and it gets deeper into the series, when prices tend to get more higher.
How To Get the Cheaper World Series Tickets
Most other ticket marketplaces charge high service fees in addition to the listed price, but not TickPick. Here at TickPick, we have no service fees, making us your source for cheaper World Series Tickets on the secondary market.
Given these high face values and extreme resale value of this annual series, prices can get out of hand quickly when you factor in the fees that every other marketplace aside from TickPick will charge you on top of the listed price.
