New York Mets Season Opener Summary

Event Overview: Every April, the "other team" in New York returns to Citi Field for the NY Mets Season Opener - the first of 161 games at their new field in Queens.  Get your NY Mets tickets for season opener and throughout the season right here at NYC Tourist!

What to Expect: While the NY Mets usually offer cheaper tickets than the crosstown Yankees, the passion for the NY Mets Season Opener is just as strong. Expect a great game - without a Designated Hitter, of course - at the New York Mets Home Opener.

  • Cold Weather: After all, it's still early April in NYC. Expect some chills and dress warm to the NY Mets Season Opener in Queens.
  • Fast Game: The NY Mets play in Major League Baseball's National League, which often play faster games than the American League because of their lack of firepower. Expect a fun, fast game at the Mets Home Opener.

Inside Knowledge: The NY Mets played in historic Shea Stadium from their inception in 1969 until 2009. The new Citi Field in Queens seats just under 42,000 - 15,000 less than Shea.

Event Hints:

  • Buy NY Mets Tickets in Advance: Tickets to the NY Mets Home Opener are hard to come by. We suggest buying your NY Mets opener tickets well in advance to ensure you get in.
  • Don't Expect Much Offense: Citi Field is a pitcher-friendly NYC ballpark - meaning the outfield is bigger than average. Combined with the cold weather, don't expect a lot of offense in the NY Mets Season Opener.
  • Watch for the Big Apple: The signature Big Apple in centerfield appears after NY Mets home run. This famous tradition began at Shea Stadium, and continues at Citi Field.
