Get Your Tickets Now for Syracuse University Day at Citi Field
Tickets are on sale for Syracuse University Day at Citi Field featuring the New York Mets (parent team of the Syracuse Mets) hosting the Colorado Rockies on Sunday, June 9. Gates open at 11:10 a.m., with the first pitch at 1:10 p.m. Ticket options range from $30 to $105—with a food/beverage plan at the upper level—plus optional roundtrip bus transportation from Syracuse.
Everyone who purchases a game ticket through the University will receive a commemorative Syracuse University/New York Mets cap, and one lucky Syracuse fan will be selected to participate in the in-game contest. Otto the Orange will be on hand, and a Syracuse University celebrity (TBA) will throw out the honorary first pitch.
This is the ninth year for the annual Syracuse University Day game in which alumni, family and friends—more than 1,000 each year—come together to cheer on the Mets or the Yankees (games alternate from year to year between Citi Field and Yankee Stadium). The concept is the brainchild of alumnus Brian Spector ’78, past president of the Syracuse University Alumni Association, with event planning and logistics managed by the SU in NYC team.
This year’s game coincides with the inaugural season of the Syracuse Mets, the New York Mets’ new Triple A affiliate.
Tickets are available from the University through May 10 at :
- A Promenade (upper deck) seat is $30.
- A Right Field Party Plaza (300 level) seat is $54.
- A Right Field Party Plaza seat plus a food voucher (choice of hot dog/fries combo, burger/fries combo or pizza, plus unlimited beer/soda/water from one hour before the game through the seventh inning) is $105.
After May 10, if tickets remain, additional ticket sales will be accommodated by the New York Mets through Will Call.
Bus transportation from campus—arranged by the Syracuse University Central New York Alumni Club—is available for an additional $60 per seat. Departure is from Manley Field House at 6:30 a.m. Sunday, with arrival back in Syracuse at about 10 p.m. There is a stop along the way in Binghamton to pick up and drop off Binghamton-area passengers.
