FanSnap: Nats Tickets to Stephen Strasburg's Debut Average $102

(June 02, 2010)

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/02/10 -- FanSnap®, the leading live event ticket search engine, today announced the availability of 3,000+ Washington Nationals tickets from five tickets sites to see Stephen Strasburg -- the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB Draft -- make his Major League debut.

Nats tickets for the June 8 meeting with the Pirates went from averaging $38.50 in mid May to $102.13 today. The lowest price tickets available went from $11.85 to $32 in the same period.

Since the announcement that Stephen Strasburg will get his first start in a Nationals uniform on June 8, ticket availability to that game has also tripled. The increased supply on the open market for tickets typically drives prices down. "Seeing ticket demand to see Stephen Strasburg explode, even as the number of tickets available for fans increases, shows just how popular Strasburg is in Washington," said FanSnap spokesman Christian Anderson.

Last week, Nationals fans anticipated Stephen Strasburg would make his debut on June 9, which doubled ticket prices on the open ticket market over night. Since the announcement that Strasburg would start the 8th and not the 9th, average ticket prices to the game on the 9th went down to $30.
