With advanced metrics linked to the Pirates' ticketing system, the ticket prices are adjusted upward or downward based on the demand for each game. This provides fans with greater price flexibility based on real-time market conditions.

Tickets in the Pirates Cove include unlimited peanuts, popcorn and soda. Tickets in the Outfield Box and Corner Box include loaded value which can be used to purchase concessions or merchandise the day of your game at PNC Park.
