The Washington Nationals released their 2010 season ticket prices that will see a decrease in prices on season tickets of over 3,300 seats, and no price increases in non-premium seats.
The club also announced that Nationals Season Ticket Holders who renew their plans will continue to receive many benefits that are not available to the individual ticket buyer, including the ability to enroll in the Grand Slam EZ Payment Plan.
â€śThe Nationals are committed to providing a top-notch, affordable, fan experience for all guests,â€ť said Nationals President Stan Kasten. â€śWe are pleased to lower prices on over 3,300 seats, including over 2,000 in the lower bowl, and will continue to offer season ticket plans for as little as $10 per game. We thank our fans for their continued support of the Washington Nationals as we continue to build towards a winning ballclub in the Nationâ€™s Capital.â€ť
Not all prices will be lowered, including the most expensive seats at Nationals Park, the section directly behind homeplate named the Lexus Presidents Seats. The best seats at Nationals Park in this section will remain $300 per game, and are only available via full-season plans.
The team will introduce three new seating sections at the ballpark in 2010 â€“ Home Plate Box, Home Plate Reserved and Outfield Reserved (see attached diagram). The Home Plate Box, adjacent to the Lexus Presidents seats, will cost $150 per seat and include one parking pass per four tickets and access to the PNC Diamond Club. The Home Plate Reserved, priced at $75 per ticket, is adjacent to the PNC Diamond seats. These two sections will provide guests with premier sightlines, just rows away from the action on the field. Additionally, the team has combined the LF Box (Sections 103 through 107), LF Reserved (101 and 102) and RF Reserved (138 through 143) to create the Outfield Reserved Section â€“ in which over 2,000 seats have been reduced by at least $5. This section provides fans with additional options for affordable seats ($20 in a full season ticket plan) in the lower bowl of the ballpark, where they will find plenty to cheer about in 2010.
Additionally, over 1,000 seats in the Lower RF Terrace (the lower half of Sections 222 through 236) have been reduced to $15 per seat for all half- and partial-plan holders.

The club will also remove the remaining two rows of Red Loft Seats and replace them with bar rails, as seen throughout the ballpark. The changes to Nationals Park were made to add to the impressive sightlines and improve the experience of all Nationals fans visiting the ballpark.
The Nationals will offer half-season ticket plans in 2010 in areas of the ballpark where they were not available in 2008 or 2009. Fans may now purchase 42-game packages on the Club Level in 1st & 3rd Base Club (Sections 206 through 208 and 219 through 221, $50 per seat). Club Level seats include access to the Stars & Stripes Club.
The average season ticket price for a non-premium seat will be $28.60 at Nationals Park in 2010. Almost half (17,227) of the non-premium seats offered at Nationals Park will be $20 or less. According to the Nationals, â€śThe total cost of a family of four attending a Washington Nationals game in 2010 could be as inexpensive as $40 for Season Ticket Holders on the Gallery Level or $80 on the Field Level.â€ť
