A trip to Fenway Park just got a little more expensive.
The Red Sox are raising their ticket prices by an average of 2.5 percent for the 2019 season, the club announced Thursday morning. The Sox also introduced a new price tier, called Diamond, for the six games of the season deemed highest in demand. Ticket prices for these selected contests will rise by an average of approximately 10 percent, while those for the remaining 73 home games — split amongst five price tiers — will rise by an average of 1.6 percent.
The two-game series against the New York Yankees that will take place in London was not included in the season calculations.
The Diamond tier for 2019 includes the home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays (April 9), two games against the Los Angeles Dodgers (July 12-13), and three games against the Yankees (July 26-27 and Sept. 7).
Since 2009, the Red Sox have raised ticket prices by an average of 1.8 percent per year. The club will continue to offer reduced pricing for students, clergy, veterans, and active duty members of the military.
Below is a breakdown of prices for each non-premium seating category.
