Watching the Braves play doesn’t have to be expensive. As is, quite a few tickets are priced at $8 each per game, and fans have the option of bringing their own food & non-alcoholic beverages with them to Turner Field.
And you have quite a few other ways to get in on the cheap + see & do more while you’re at Turner Field:
- This weekend is Braves Alumni Weekend. We’ll be there Sunday, and I do know that parking is going to be a mess all weekend. If you haven’t prepurchased parking, take MARTA. Turner Field lots will be permit only. Gates will open three hours prior to the first pitch for all three games, and there’ll be plenty to see & do:Friday, August 12, there’s an alumni meet & greet + autograph opportunity in Fan Plaza at 5:30 p.m., and the Bobby Cox Tribute & number retirement is at 7:00 p.m. On Saturday, August 13, at 5:00 p.m., the Braves Legends Game will feature the 1991 Braves vs. all other alumni. Sunday, August 14, there’s an alumni meet & greet + autograph opportunity in Fan Plaza at 11:30 a.m.
- Cheap game-day tickets + free post-game concerts = a tough deal to beat. During the 2011 Braves Summer Concert Series you can stick around for a free post-game concert (free = if you go to the game, you can stay for a free concert). Up next: Styx will perform on Saturday, September 17, following the Braves vs. Mets game.
For even more ways to get in on the cheap, take advantage of one of these deals for the 2011 season. FYI–If there’s no promo code required (or unless otherwise noted), you’ll find the deals on the Braves’ ticketing site when you try & order tickets online; just choose the tickets for the specific sections indicated:
- On ScoreBig, Bid to save 10%-70% on tickets to games all season long. It’s free to sign up; the link lets you skip the wait list for membership. Your savings will vary by game, but I just scanned the list, and tickets for some games have hit the highest discount bracket.
- You’ll need to sign up with Goldstar to take advantage of this deal (it’s free to sign up). On the Atlanta page, you’ll often find offers to save 50% on tickets to select Atlanta Braves games. The inventory will vary throughout the season, but as of this morning, they’ve got tickets to this weekend’s games vs. the Cubs + next week’s games vs. the Giants & the Diamondbacks. You’ll need to act early when you spot them, as they’ve been known to sell out.

Z posted a comment re: this deal the last time I posted the round-up; I’ll include it here as an FYI. You may get both a better deal & better view with another option.Per Z: “Braves All You Can Eat / Drink tickets. If you’re not driving home and can pack away a lot of beer then it’s a ok deal, but otherwise it’s not so great. $70 (sometimes more on weekends and game day). They don’t serve the food or beer until right as the game starts. On busy days the run out of food lots of times. At the start of the 7th they begin to take food away. AT THE END OF THE 7th THEY TAKE AWAY THE BEER. To make the value work, you really need to take advantage of everything. If you have a designated driver or take MARTA, it’s great though. It’s really not a value for anyone not drinking the beer part; you’re better off buying food at concessions and sitting in cheaper/better view seats.” Also, Z’s All You Can Eat/Drink Update from July 4th: Food served – baked beans, hot dogs, chicken wings, wrapped cookies, bagged peanuts and popcorn. Drinks – 8oz. bottled Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, water and, of course, beer. Must show ID every time you go get a beer.
Turner Field is located at 755 Hank Aaron Dr, Atlanta. 800-326-4000
