Community Ticket Program

Updated - 7/1/20

ATTENTION: Following the postponement of the 2020 baseball season due to the global pandemic, Major League Baseball has officially announced a plan to return to play for the 2020 season. While we anticipate the regular season beginning around July 23/24, the new 60-game season will feature an entirely new schedule. As a result, all current 2020 Cardinals baseball tickets (April – September) are no longer valid. If your group or organization received Community Tickets for any of the originally scheduled 2020 games (April – September), those tickets are no longer valid and should be properly disposed of. The tickets DO NOT need to be returned to the Cardinals.

It has yet to be determined if ticketed fans will be present at any of the newly scheduled 2020 Cardinals baseball games. The Cardinals are working with MLB and City of St. Louis health officials on these details, and while we’re hopeful at some point to allow a modified, reduced capacity of fans safely in attendance for games, there are a number of factors to consider before a final decision can be made. Regardless of the decision, no Community Tickets will be issued for any of the newly scheduled games.

We will miss having our community groups and organizations at the ballpark this season but hope you will continue to cheer us on from home. We look forward to resuming the complementary Community Ticket program in 2021 with more details and an application becoming available in late 2020/early 2021.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
