A new season is approaching, and new ticket deals exist at Yankee Stadium in 2017.

Yankees tickets officially went on sale to the general public on Monday morning, giving fans first dibs at all 81 home games in the Bronx this year. The team has introduced two new ticketing plans for the 2017 season in the Pinstripe Pass and Grandstand seating options, designed to offer more affordable pricing (and perks) throughout the stadium this year.

The $15 Pinstripe Pass is available for all Yankees home games and is a general admission, standing-room-only ticket. The pass includes the choice of a 12 oz. domestic beer for fans that are 21 or older with a valid ID, a Pepsi product or a bottle of Poland Spring water. Fans who purchase a Pinstripe Pass can view the game from any non-assigned standing room area of Yankee Stadium. These locations include the newly-opened Masterpass Batter’s Eye Decks, AT&T Sports Lounge in left field and the SunRun Kids Clubhouse.

For those looking to save even more, the cheaper of the new plans is the Grandstand level option. The Yankees will offer $10 tickets in select Grandstand (400 level) locations for every home game this season. Quantity will vary by game, however, so plan accordingly for premium matchups.

The Pinstripe Pass and Grandstand seating options join the growing list of Yankees ticket options for 2017. The Mastercard $5 game returns this season, giving fans the opportunity to purchase tickets in the Terrace, Grandstand or Bleachers when using their Mastercard at checkout. Mastercard will also sponsor several half-price games throughout the season. Fans using this option can purchase tickets for 50 percent off the advance ticket price using their Mastercard.

A slew of other ticket deals also exist through Ticketmaster. E-Saver, Military Personnel, Senior Citizen, Student and Youth game options are available at select games throughout the season. Weekly email ticket offers will be given to Yankees email subscribers through the E-Saver option. Active military members can present their military identification to receive one grandstand or bleacher-level seats to any Monday-Thursday home game.

Citizens 60 or older may receive discounted tickets at all home games while high school or college students can purchase half-price tickets at Wednesday home games. Fans 14 and under can take advantage of half-price tickets when accompanied by an adult at Saturday, Sunday and select weekday 1:05 p.m. home games.

The Yankees play the Tampa Bay Rays in their home opener on April 10. They’ll face the Toronto Blue Jays in their final regular season matchup at Yankee Stadium on October 1.
