Important Citi Field information for National League Wild Card Game

– Posted in: Postseason

The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants ended up with the same record after 162 games of the 2016 regular season, but by virtue of the Mets 4-3 record in head-to-head competition, the Wild Card Game will be hosted at Citi Field!

Here is what you need to know logistically regarding the Wild Card game at Citi Field on 10/5/16:

  • Parking lots open at 4:30pm
  • ALL gates open at 5pm (since this is 30 minutes earlier than typical for most games, it also provides the potential of seeing the Mets take batting practice!)
  • Will call is NOT available.  Make sure you either physically hand off your ticket, or forward electronically.
  • Season ticket holders can use their My Mets Tickets account to manage tickets, just as during the regular season
  • Mass transit is the way to to, via the 7 train or LIRR from Penn Station
  • Parking lot and security lines can be quite long, so give yourself a lot of extra time if you want to make it into the stadium in time for the opening ceremonies.
