REMINDER: FIRST “MEA NIGHT AT THE PADRES” GAME TICKETS GO ON SALE TODAY AT 9:00 AM ONLY BY CALLING MEA
Following up on our email from last week about “MEA Night at the Padres” games for this season, tickets for the Friday, June 16 game will go on sale today (May 24) beginning at 9:00 a.m. ONLY by calling MEA at 619-264-6632.
If you are interested in buying tickets, please read this entire email as some of our procedures will be different than in previous years.
The tickets on sale today are only for the first MEA game night which is Friday, June 16 with the Padres playing the Tampa Bay Rays starting at 6:40 p.m. Tickets for the second game (Friday, July 28 – Pads playing the Texas Rangers at 6:40 p.m.) will go on sale on Wednesday, July 5. Members will only be able to purchase tickets for ONE of the two games.
For both games, MEA has once again secured the rooftop of the Western Metal Supply Building, which can accommodate 500 people with plenty of room to mingle and enjoy the beautiful view from the highest point of Petco Park. Each ticket also includes hot dogs, sliders, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, and sodas, as well as a seat in the upper deck of the ballpark right next to the Western Metal Supply Building.
MEA covers most of the cost of these tickets and food. MEA members pay only $25 per ticket to attend and may purchase up to two tickets total (one for the member and one guest). MEA wants to allow as many members as possible to be able to attend at least one game, so members may only purchase tickets for one of the two games.
Please note that tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE. Non-transferable means that members cannot sell or give their tickets to anyone else, including other members. Check-in at the game will be required under the name of the member that purchased the ticket(s). Again, this is not meant to be overly restrictive, but is being done simply to ensure that as many MEA members as possible can attend each game.
Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and are expected to sell out at some point during the same day that they go on sale.
In order to be as fair as possible to all members regardless of work location or ability to leave work, tickets for both games will only be available by calling MEA and securing your tickets on the phone with an MEA representative. You can pay over the phone with a credit or debit card and then pick up the physical tickets between June 1 and June 14 from MEA’s Kearny Mesa offices between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at your convenience.
Walk-ins to MEA’s offices will NOT be permitted to purchase tickets in person. We apologize to those of you who have done it this way in the past, but again we are just trying to give every member a fair chance to secure tickets.
MEA’s phone lines will be answered by a number of staff members. If you get a busy signal or our voicemail greeting, we are on the other line helping another member. Please hang up and keep trying and do NOT leave a voice message, as we will only be selling tickets to members who we actually speak with on the phone until we are sold out.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience…Padres ticket sale days tend to be extremely busy and MEA staff will be doing our very best to assist everyone.
If you have any questions or need more information, don’t hesitate to contact MEA at firstname.lastname@example.org or 619-264-6632. We look forward to seeing you at the ballpark!
