he New York Mets today announced the club has released a limited supply of standing room only tickets for Opening Day this Monday, March 31 at Citi Field. Standing room only tickets cost $35 and are on sale now at Mets.com/Tickets, (718) 507-TIXX and the Citi Field Ticket Windows. The Mets open the 2014 season against Washington at 1:10 p.m.
The Mets encourage fans to take mass transit to Opening Day at Citi Field. Parking is limited as Cirque du Soleil’s Amaluna is currently in production in the Citi Field parking lots. There will be no performance on Opening Day to accommodate as many fans as possible.
The 7 Subway is the fast, convenient, and “green” way to travel to the game. The Mets-Willets Point stop is adjacent to the Jackie Robinson Rotunda. The Long Island Rail Road’s Port Washington Branch from Penn Station or Woodside has half-hourly service, and the ride from Manhattan is 16 minutes. For those coming from the northern suburbs, all Metro-North trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines connect with the 7 Subway.
