As soon as the Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs last Thursday night to clinch their berth in the World Series, demand for tickets to the first two games at Dodger Stadium skyrocketed. It’s no wonder why: Long-suffering Dodgers fans have been waiting to see their team make it to the championship since 1988.
Believe it or not, tickets haven’t sold out yet. But if you want to snag a seat at Game 1 and 2 this Tuesday and Wednesday at Dodger Stadium, you’ll have to shell out a pretty penny. Last Friday, the average asking price was a shocking $3,164, according to ticket marketing firm TicketIQ. The cheapest tickets we found weren't that bad—only $680 each—but they are pretty high up in the stands. Fans who want a better view of these once-in-a-lifetime games will have to spend even more. Dugout club seats were going for as much as $11,981 at the time of writing.
Not ready to shell out a few months’ rent to see the Dodgers in a World Series game? We get it. Instead, check out these 14 things in Los Angeles that you can buy for the average cost of a ticket.
