The Washington Nationals used to offer a season ticket partnership site to find other ticket partners, and with that not available for this season, we decided to create a feature for season ticket holders to meet potential ticket partners. Joining a Nats season ticket plan group is the best way to lock in great seats at low prices for the season, and for many buying blocks of 42 or 82 seats is a few too many to fit our budgets and/or busy schedules.
So this year Talk Nats is here to help with a list of plan holders who are looking to share some games. The great part about buying a piece of an established ticket plan versus opening a new plan is that the existing plans typically have the best seats within the pricing sections, so for the same cost per ticket (or less) you can be in the front few rows instead of over a section and back a ways.
The other great reason to buy into a Nats season ticket plan is the perks, check the flyer below for the full list of benefits. Plan holders get the opportunity to save up Red Carpet Reward (RCR) points for prizes. Discounts on food and drinks. Express lines to get into the ballpark and up to the concessions stands. Even playoff priority. NOTE: Not all ticket groups offer all ticket plan benefits, check the details with the individual plan holder.
Another reason to look into joining an existing plan is to get great seats for a few games in different parts of the ballpark. It’s a cool thing to check out the Diamond Club, the Red Porch, or down by the dugouts. Based on the plans available it could be possible to try out a few games in each of these spots.
Disclaimer: Talk Nats is not a direct party to any deals made based on connections via this blog post. This is a service to help out plan holders and fans, all exchanges are at the own risk of the sellers and buyers. We will certainly allow feedback in case there are issues.
Listing Rules and Buyers Etiquette
Rule number one is that this exchange is for face value only or less. Ticket prices in the same section may vary slightly because some plan holders are locked in at 2018 prices. In addition plan holders are allowed to pass on any service fees including PayPal costs which are at 3% but certainly could give you that extra level of buyer protection.
The Nationals allow plan holders to advertise for partners, however they only allow single game sales via their official partner for resales. Talk Nats has no part in enforcing this rule but in order to avoid any question of compliance among plan holders listing on this site the minimum number of tickets per share will be set at five sets (i.e. ten tickets for a plan with a pair of seats).
Sellers should list the 1) section, 2) row, 3) price per ticket, 4) # of tickets per game, 5) number of games in a share, 6) ticket distribution method, 7) ticket selection method, 8) SPH perks included, 9) whether parking is included, 10) contact info, and 11) why the seats are a good buy.
Buyers should assume that the terms of the plan are as listed in the write ups below. Most plan holders are not looking to haggle on prices, they are also not interested in changing up the terms of ticket distribution.
Ticket Plans – Friends of Talk Nats
This listing of season ticket plans are owned by regular contributors on Talk Nats and friends of the Talk Nats moderators:
- Section 222, row E, $20 per ticket, available in sets of two or four. Offered in sets of ten pairs for $400. No RCR. Ticket draft via email. I can distribute tickets via email or a Nats Plus plan. Section 222 is what I consider to be the best bargain section in the ballpark, it is a fine view of the field for a very low ticket price. Contact [email protected] Google email .com
- Section 143, row B, $30 per ticket, available in a set of two. Offered slightly below cost these seats in centerfield are on the end of the row with great views in the second row in the section next to the area the President’s races begin. Amazing views. Will try to accommodate certain games to the early arrivals. I can distribute tickets via email or through Nats Plus adding you as a seat partner if you purchase at least 10 games. Contact me via email at ALang20165 @ aol. com
- Section 314, Row D, $27 per ticket. A “share” is 40 tickets, total cost $1,080. Price also locked in for 2020. We have four seats in the Infield Gallery, right under the pressbox behind home plate. Tickets claimed and distributed prior to each homestand rather than in a preseason draft, which offers maximum flexibility to shareholders. Tix can be used in any combination — 10 games of all 4, 20 games of 2, 6 games of 3 plus 11 games of 2, etc., including single seats. Opportunity to purchase postseason tix and Opening Day. All ticket resales benefit the group as a whole, with pro-rata rebates to shareholders after the season varying from $360 to $525 over the past nine years. Sounds complicated but it’s not really. Contact Section314not222 at gmail or DM @Section222 on Twitter with contact info for more detail/questions
- Section 215, Row E, Seats 3 and 4, with good in and out access to the Club Section between innings and we get to wave to Mike Rizzo every now and then. Sharing in 10 game swaths for the pair, at $160.25 for the pair for each game $1,602.13 for the 10 games We do a draft each year in person in Upper NW, DC. We split the playoff games also, and have always had access to additional tickets for those games, opening day, etc. Each member gets their share of Red Carpet Rewards and gets the applicable discounts for food and beverages, and at the team store. My email is [email protected]
- Section 312, Row D, Seats 1 and 2. Season Ticket Plan maxed out with number of partners so this is not buying into a plan – just the tickets (no other benefits). Expect to have some games available for $55/game (both tickets). List of games will be available no later than mid-March (hopefully earlier). Minimum games is whatever the rules are (currently 5 or more games). Contact me at djhonetwoonetwo @ hotmail dot com (replace the words for the numbers onetwo with the numbers 12) to be notified when the list of games is available.
- Sec 409 Row E 2 seats at $16.50 per ticket. “I’m looking for one last partner for my Nationals Season tickets and will pass all those savings on to my group.
For just $16.50 per ticket, which is well below the single game price of $24 per seat, you could have the best bargain in the ballpark! It’s a very good discount (even better for prime games, as you’ll still pay $16.50). It’s actually less than if you purchased, new full season tickets, because I locked in my price. It is a great location near food and bathrooms, under an overhang in case of rain, and it’s in the shaded side of the field in case of those hot summer days. All regular season games will be available via the draft, except opening day. The draft date in February/March, after the full promo schedule is released. I’m looking one person to buy 5 game/2 ticket blocks in Sec 409 Row E for $165 total (or $16.50 per).
The seats have a great view of the entire field; I prefer the location to other more expensive options. 5 games with be emailed and no playoff tickets rights, but I will exchange any games you can’t go to, in similar seats, using the Nationals exchange program (replacement game subject to blackouts). Red Carpet Points are not included. Email to [email protected] if interested.
- Section 117, Row P, Seats 15-18 and Section 209 Row G, Seats 20-23; Our group shares two sets of seats, 4 tickets/game + Geico Lot Parking in the following areas: Section 117, Row P, Seats 15-18 behind the visitor’s dugout ($78/ticket) and Section 209 Row G, Seats 20-23 on the Club level ($69/ticket). Our group head just takes game requests from the group and tries to best match those requests. Parking is $44/game. We are looking for additional partners seeking 5, 10 or 20 games during the 2019 season. Email me at [email protected] if interested and I can link you up with our head ticket holder for specifics.
