Season Ticket Guide: Opponents

Happy Saturday, Reds fans! Welcome to the second installment of our Season Ticket Guide. Yesterday, we showed you all of the giveaway days each 20- and 13-game season ticket package had to offer. In case you missed it, check it out here!

Today, we’re bringing you the packages based on the opponents for each game. Some of you might be more interested in seeing the Reds play more games against NL Central teams, while others of you might really want to see the Reds battle teams we don’t see as often. Whatever your preference, there is definitely a season ticket package for you.

Mix A only has three repeat-opponents, who all happen to be NL Central teams. Mix A will also showcase notable teams such as the Giants, the Nationals, and the Dodgers. If you want the best assortment of watching each different team play, Mix A is the way to go. Mix A and B are evenly matched when it comes to AL opponents – each has one Tigers, Indians, and Twins game. Mix B has five repeat-opponents – 11 games against NL Central teams. If you purchase Mix B, your package will consist of over half NL Central opponents. Mix B also has an Opening Weekend game, so you will get to see the Reds take on the Marlins. If you are very NL Central-oriented, Mix B is for you.

The Weekend and Weeknight (now: Dog Lovers’ Package) both have 20 games against 11 different teams. The lucky thing about Weekend and Weeknight packages is that they both contain more games in a single series than either Mix package. For example, with the Weeknight package, you can see two games of the Reds-Phillies September series versus Mix A’s one Phillies game. The Weekend Package has 11 NL Central matchups, where as the Weeknight package only contains eight. As far as specific teams go, the Weekend and Weeknight packages are pretty even. You get to see the Nationals, the Rockies, and the Dodgers with the Weekend package and the Giants, Padres, and Phillies with the Weeknight. Oh, one more thing – AL games. The Weekend package has Tigers and Twins games but no Indians game while the Weeknight package has an Indians game, but no love from Detroit or Minnesota.

13-GAME FRIDAY

Astros (2)
Nationals
Rockies
Tigers
Indians
Twins
Cardinals (2)
Brewers
Pirates
Cubs
Dodgers

 13-GAME SATURDAY

Marlins
Astros (2)
Nationals
Rockies
Tigers
Twins
Cardinals (2)
Pirates
Brewers
Cubs
Dodgers

13-GAME SUNDAY

Marlins
Astros (2)
Nationals
Rockies
Tigers
Twins
Cardinals (2)
Brewers
Pirates
Cubs
Dodgers

The 13-game weekend packages are all pretty much the same. These packages are mostly made up of Friday-Saturday-Sunday weekend series, making them virtually identical. The Friday package does have an Indians game while the Saturday and Sunday do not, but the Saturday and Sunday packages make up for it with their Opening Weekend Marlins games. Something that might effect your decision-making, however, is that most of the Sunday games will be day games. In the oppressive heat of a Cincinnati summer, that might make you think a little more about what choice you make. Each package contains seven NL Central games as well.

If you are still trying to figure out your season ticket package, we hope our guide to the Reds season ticket matchups has helped! I know that we’re a little closer to picking our package, but we still need a little bit more information. Check back tomorrow for Part III of our Season Ticket Guide!

As always, GO REDS!

I’m thinking about making the trip to see my Cubs this year. I haven’t been to a game in Cincinnati yet and hope I am able to do so in 2012.
