We paid $5,528.40 for our four tickets in Section A, Row H (splitting the cost four ways). The seller came off the pricing approximately $1,000 per ticket over the last week. It was cheaper than my World Series ticket for Game 1 in Houston... well worth it IMO as I'm probably not making too many more games in the near future with twins on the way.

The way I look at it... it's a bucket list item - and my one game for the year. Pricey... for sure. I complained too much on here about the politics in DC to be shutout from this game. Now if I can get the ticket app to work on my phone, I'll feel a little bit better about the purchase. Go Nats...
I hope the wife will see the wisdom of getting you out of the house as soon as your kids are old enough to go on the flight to DC with daddy.

Tickets secure... at an insane price... but hey, I'll be there with three other Nats diehards like myself.

Wife just told me I have a $1,000 budget for getting a ticket. This will be one of those moments where I’m going to ask for forgiveness later. We both work hard and make decent loot (for Texas that is). It’s not worth the argument now - her hormones are raging pretty hard right now while in her first trimester. Like Holy Batman... one minute she’s as sweet as can be and the next minute I feel like I’m back in boot camp.

The Commonwealth is easing restrictions effective April 1st to allow for 30% seating capacity attendance in outdoor venues.

If Muriel follows suit for the second homestand, that would allow for about 12,400 at Nats Park in the next go-around...

In my mind, I was thinking 10,000, so close.

I'm curious if they sold out their pods for games other than opening day. In my ticket group, there was a bit of demand  for the St. Louis series 4/19-21.

Is anyone else not seeing their tickets in the ballpark app? The MVP access link let me transfer one ticket to a friend but I can't view my actual ticket app.

are they allowing you to transfer part of a pod?  It's been pretty confusing.

I transferred the ticket to a friend so they would be able to access it in their account. I wasn’t selling it. Based on the limited reading I did, the breaking up and sale of pods was prohibited. I didn’t sell mine, I was giving it to a friend so that she could add it to her Apple wallet and get in the park if I got there before her.

TBH, I have to really read the rules and emails, and I'm tired at the end of the day from doing that for a living.  I still don't understand the relationship between the app and my regular ticket account.

Disregard, they are in my “At the Ballpark” app now. I tend to overthink or get anxious about stuff like this but the original e mail said they should be in our account March 28th. Then a follow up E mail said the 29th so as the 29th came and went, I started getting curious and I went from “Hmmmm, Where are my tickets?” to “I swear to Christ, if I have an issue getting into the ball park on opening day I will jump on every desk in the front office. I will play hop scotch on Mark Lerner’s desk if I need to”. It’s a character flaw but hey, I’ve missed baseball. 😂

Same problem here. Not having any luck seeing the tickets nor does the help feature work on the App. This could make for an interesting Opening Day.
