Red Sox tickets go on sale Jan. 29

Tickets for the 2011 regular season will go on sale Jan. 29 at 10 a.m.

Fans will be able to purchase tickets to all games at Fenway Park, with the exception of games with the Yankees and Cubs for which a special random drawing will be held at a later date.

Tickets for the Green Monster and Right Field Deck will also be sold via the random drawing.

To purchase tickets, fans can log on to www.redsox.com or call the automated ticket line at 888-REDSOX6. Fans who require accessible seating can call 877-REDSOX9. Hearing impaired fans may call the Red Sox TTY line at (617) 226-6644.


The team will host the 2011 Red Sox Road Trip with stops in all six New England states from January 18-24. The team will distribute vouchers redeemable for each respective 2011 regular season State Day game at Fenway Park, with a total of 6000 vouchers to be given out – 1000 in each state.

Vouchers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to fans that visit to the Road Trip stops. Coupon holders will have a chance to purchase tickets in advance of the general on-sale.

All distributed vouchers, which will be valid for two 2011 regular season tickets for that state’s respective State Day game at Fenway Park, must be redeemed online at www.redsox.com during the presale window as specified on the voucher. Fans holding vouchers who do not have internet access or who require ADA accessible seating may also call 877-REDSOX9 during the presale window. Hearing impaired fans may call the Red Sox TTY line at (617) 226-6644.

In addition, one fan from each state who visits a Red Sox Road Trip tour stop will be selected as a Grand Prize Winner for the Red Sox Road Trip Opening Weekend VIP Experience (includes pre-game VIP tour, the chance to watch batting practice on the field, and two tickets to an Opening Weekend game versus the Yankees). Fans can register at each tour stop and the winner will be randomly selected from all names. The winner will be notified via email.


The Road Trip will also feature the first-ever “Sing Your Way to Fenway” contest where fans of all ages will have the opportunity to audition to perform the National Anthem at Fenway Park. The first 100 fans at each stop will be guaranteed the opportunity to audition, with additional attendees to be viewed based on time constraints.

The top two winners from each state will be invited to compete in the “Sing Your Way to Fenway” finals at Fenway Park, which is scheduled to be held at Fenway Park on February 9. The grand prize winner will be selected to perform the National Anthem at a 2011 regular season Red Sox game.

The group making stops on the Red Sox Road Trip will include Wally the Green Monster, the 2004 and 2007 Red Sox World Series Trophies, a display of Red Sox memorabilia, and Fenway Ambassadors, along with a balloon artist and face painter.
