General Admission Tickets
General Admission (GA) tickets are non-guaranteed seats in the right outfield and left outfield bleachers, located in sections 125 through 136. The approximate capacity is 5,500 for these aluminum, bench-style seats with seat backs. GA tickets are not designated for a specific session or date and these seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. As long as the ticket holder arrives early enough to be seated, the tickets are good for all games, including Finals games. If the GA section is filled to capacity, the gates will close.
On days with a double header, the stadium will be cleared between games. That means you are required to leave the stadium after the first game if you plan to also attend the second game. In addition to using a new GA ticket, you will need to stand in line again for re-entry into the second game.
Once the College World Series begins, a limited number of reserved seats for all games played that day are available on a daily basis for purchase at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office. There will be no sale of reserved tickets prior to the CWS. Reserved tickets will only be sold at the TD Ameritrade Park box office, no telephone or Internet orders will be accepted. Tickets for finals games and games marked *if necessary will not be available until the day those games are being played.
There is a limit of four tickets per person, per game, when purchasing reserved-seat tickets.
All prices for reserved seats are $28 for the opening round of games, played June 18 – 24, plus the if necessary game(s) on Saturday, June 25. Finals games played June 27, 28 and if necessary on June 29 are $33. Click here for a complete schedule of games.

Box Office Hours
The TD Ameritrade Park box office opens at 10:00 a.m. every day there is a game. If no games are played Saturday, June 25, the box office will be closed all day. The box office will also be closed Sunday, June 26. The box office accepts cash, debit and credit cards. No personal checks will be accepted. Will call hours are the same as the box office hours.
Box Office Line Cueing
If twelve or more guests are at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office waiting to purchase tickets at the time of the initial box office on-sale, a random drawing will be conducted to form the line at 9 a.m.
The random drawing process is in place to provide the fairest ticket sales process possible to all guests. By removing the incentive for guests to arrive early, the random drawing saves guest’s time and significantly decreases the chance for scalpers to be the first in line. Scalpers have historically paid people to arrive hours before a sale in order to ensure a space at the front of the line.
Thirty minutes before tickets go on sale, each person, over the age of 16, in line will be assigned a number. That number will also be put into a box. A TD Ameritrade Park team member will then randomly draw a number from the box.
The person holding that number becomes the first person in line. The remaining guests will fall in line behind according to their number. For example, if No. 5 is drawn, the person assigned No. 5 becomes the first in line, followed by the persons assigned 6, 7, 8 and so forth. This continues until the highest number originally handed out is reached. After that, the person assigned No. 1 will join the line, followed by the remaining people in the order of the numbers they are holding with the person having 4 becoming the last in line.
Anyone who arrives after the numbers are handed out would join the line behind the last person holding a number.
Single GA Tickets
Single GA tickets ($11 each) go on sale the day of the game and are available at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office only. Single general admission tickets are not sold in advance.
Upgrading General Admission Tickets
Based on availability of reserved seats, GA tickets may be upgraded to reserved seats by paying the difference in price between a reserved and GA ticket. Upgrades are available only at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha box office for that day of games only and are available as part of the same random-drawing process for reserved tickets. When upgrading general admission tickets to reserved tickets, the limit is four tickets.
GA Stadium Entrance
To enter the stadium with a GA ticket, there are two general admission entrances - Gate 3 (center field) and Gate 4 (left field).
