Last night, the Rockies made a press release to announce how you can buy your playoff tickets for October (and potentially, November).
Since the Rockies look like they are well on their way to having a date with the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Wild Card game (check out the standings here), the Rockies announced yesterday the ticket options for fans before the playoffs.
"All postseason single-game ticket sales will be done online. You can register for your postseason tickets by going to rockies.com/postseason by the deadlines listed below for each round of the playoffs. Registrants who win the opportunity to purchase tickets for that round will be notified by e-mail."
Single-game ticket quantities for possible postseason games will be very limited as Coors Field will certainly be sold out for any postseason game held there.
The only way for fans to guarantee postseason tickets is by placing a deposit for 2018 Season Tickets. That can also be done at rockies.com/postseason.
Here are the registration deadlines for single-game postseason ticket opportunities:
National League Wild Card Game: Wednesday, Sept 6
National League Division Series: Wednesday, Sept. 6
National League Championship Series: Thursday, Oct. 5
World Series: Thursday, Oct. 12.
The Rockies also said that “[r]efunds for postseason games not played will be automatically refunded back to customers on their credit card used for the ticket purchase.”
For the Wild Card Game and the Division Series, the deadline is approaching upon us fast as it is less than three weeks away.

Obviously, depending on the match-up for each series and how deep in the postseason will determine the ticket pricing but, as you may expect, they are expensive either way.
As someone who was fortunate enough to go to Game 1 of last year’s World Series (thanks, Uncle Jim!), the costs for an upper deck ticket were around $1500 a piece. In the games in Chicago and games six and seven in Cleveland, they were even more so obviously, you have to get them early and pay an arm and a leg for them.
However, if you are fortunate enough to have the funds and the opportunity, it is an experience of a lifetime…and one that you won’t forget.
