    Just go onto www.yankees.com and click on Tickets.

    The Yankees are at home on the 16th Vs the Rays and the 18th Vs the Blue Jays.

    I'm not sure if tickets are on sale yet, but keep an eye on it and you should pick up tickets no problem.

    Single game tickets will be onsale for all Yankees home games on their website. Easy enough to purchase but buying from here will have to purchase them as international will call and collect them at the stadium before the game. If I were going to a game I would pick the earliest one date wise in case of rainout. If that happens you should be able to exchange the tickets for a later game.

    If your looking for just 1 pair of tickets head on over to Stub Hub. Can't really beat it to be honest. All price ranges covered.

    The link below should sort you out. Once you purchase they'll email you on print off tickets. Myself and my girlfriend used them regularly until we got Season tickets for the Angels.

    Do Stubhub accept Irish credit cards now? When I tried a few years back they didn't so I couldn't use them.

    I presume the yankees have the 'print at home' option which is the handiest option I think. They email a PDF of the ticket to you instantly so there's no queueing or looking for the will call when you get there.

    They didn't last season anyway. I had to pick them up from the Will Call. The queue was about 30 minutes long.

    That's surprising. I thought they'd have that in place. Even their crosstown neighbours have that facility and they can't do anything right!

    Thanks for the replys. I was on the yankees site there and it gave me a pic of the stadium so i could pick a seat but not having been to a baseball game before just wondering if any of ye could advise where to sit. We will def want to be near a bar and somewhere where theres a bit of atmosphere but not pay 3 grand a ticket:). Thanks again lads, cant wait to get over.

    We were down the right field line. 2nd tier, just beyond 1st base...great view. Tickets were about $80 each iirc.

    There were food stalls and bars nearby, but the vendors go around anyway so you don't have to leave your seat to get a beer!

    I've never been to Yankees stadium but it's a new ball park so if it's like any of the other new stadiums there'll be bars everywhere. Sellers walk around selling beer anyway so you can get beer from your seat if you want.

    If you want to get a view of all the seat options, instead of going into the ticket section on yankees.com, go here:

    http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/ballpark/seating_pricing.jsp

    and click on the sections and it gives you a view.

    I agree on stubhub, I have tried over the years to get tickets there but they never accepted Irish CCs, more over the address from here you have to enter.

    As for Yankee stadium, just get some cheap seats in the grandstand, beer aint that cheap there so you'll need your $$$ for that. Last year when we went we had great matchup as Texas was in town but got beat up by Yankees sluggung machine. We were kinda of lucky that there happened to be a rain delay before the game started so many fans didnt bother showing up so we were able to move to better seats in the Terrace level. I didnt have any issues collecting the tickets either but I was up at the stadium an hour before the game...

    Just use the Hotel address you'll be staying at no?? It's what we used to do. Not exactly a major issue. Never had an issue with my Ulster Bank Credit or Debit card for that matter. If it's your first time splash out on a decent pair of tickets. Worth it in my opinion. Could never understand how people stuck it up in Nose bleed seats for any sport.
