MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL, MN -- The Minnesota Twins today announced ticket prices for the 2006 season including plans to once again offer more than 9,000 seats at just $6 for most games.
Cited in April of this year by Team Marketing Report for having the American League's third lowest average ticket price ($16.25 - almost $5 below the MLB average of $21.17), the Twins remain committed to providing fans throughout the region with affordable family entertainment.
In 2006, the Twins will introduce a variable pricing structure, with tickets purchased as part of a season package discounted $1 to $5 from the single-game price for 72 of 81 home games including opening day. Season tickets will be discounted $5 to $8 from the single-game price for nine Premium Games including scheduled home contests versus the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs. The Twins will again offer a variety of season ticket options including 81-game, 41-game, 20-game plans as well as the popular Business Advantage and Flex 40 ticket packages.
In conjunction with the ticket price adjustments, the Twins Metrodome seating plan will be slightly modified. Beginning in 2006, the first six rows of the upper deck within the infield (Sec. 220-229) will be renamed Upper Deck Box with the balance of upper deck seats from Sec. 217-233 remaining Upper Deck Club.

"We believe this ticket price plan keeps the Twins among the most affordable options in the marketplace, while providing added resources aimed at helping maintain a competitive ballclub for the 2006 season and beyond."
In addition to the standard ticket pricing structure outlined above, the Twins will bring back a variety of family-focused ticket programs including the popular "Dairy Queen Family Pack", "Cub Foods Value Pack", "Culver's Kid's Day", "Our Family Brand Half-Price Nights" and "Buffalo Wild Wings Student Nights".
