Wristband system for ALCS tickets

Playoff tickets to Games 1 and 2 of the American League Championship Series go on sale today at 9 a.m. There will be approximately 13,000 tickets available for Games 1 and 2. Prices for the ALCS are $65 and $85.

Games 1 and 2 of the best-of-seven ALCS are scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday and 5 p.m. Thursday.

As was used for the Division Series tickets, a wristband system will be used for ALCS tickets. ALCS tickets will be sold at the Safeco Field office (Atlantic Street side) and at Mariners Team Stores (downtown Seattle, Bellevue Square, Alderwood Mall and Southcenter Mall). Tickets can also be purchased at Ticketmaster Ticket Centers in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia.

There will be a limit of four tickets per person per game and no tickets will be sold online or by phone.

Ticketmaster and Mariners Team Stores will utilize a random number distribution system to determine ticket buyers’ positions in line when tickets go on sale. Numbered wristbands will be handed out. You must be at least 12 years of age to receive a wristband and only one per person will be allowed.

Wristbands do not guarantee a ticket, only a place in line to purchase tickets when they go on sale. Ticket buyers must return to the location where they got their wristband or ticket stub to be guaranteed a place in line.

People must be at the Ticket Center or Team Store where they picked up their wristband by 8 a.m. today to reserve a place in line. A number will be drawn at random to determine who is “first” in line. Ticket buyers will then line up according to their wristband or ticket stub number. Wristband holders who arrive late will be sent to the back of the line.

Ticket buyers who do not have wristbands or ticket stubs will be allowed to line up behind those who do. Any wristband that is tampered with, damaged or removed will be invalid.
