The Kansas City Royals have been a popular franchise since Royals tickets first went on
sale in 1969. Their first winning season came just two years later, giving fans a taste of what was to come. Purchasing Royals tickets allows fans to witness
a piece of baseball history as the team begins to rebound form a decades long slump.
The Royals began their rise to prominence in the 1980's. Fans who were lucky enough to hold Royals tickets during the 1985
playoffs delighted at the chance to watch the team rally from a 3-1 World Series deficit and eventually become World Champions. What followed was a decade of
relatively successful seasons before the start of a major decline in 1995.
In 2002, the team set a new record losing 100 games for the first time in franchise
history. Fans of the team experienced an almost decade long streak of futility due to the death of owner Ewing Kauffman and subsequent dumping of Royals salary. Those still interested in Royals tickets during this time were able to
keep the team going until the start of the 2010 season when manager Ned Yost was brought in to change the teams fortunes. With Yost serving as manager and promising rookies Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer on the squad, the Royals show promise and are preparing to jump back into the AL spotlight.
Sporting their trademark powder blue uniforms, the Royals have made their home
in Kauffman stadium since 1973. Fans of the team were treated to a renovation of the
park in 2000. Since then Royals tickets will give you access to seats done in the team's
trademark blue and a number of other renovations as well. Since 2007, there has been
a seat in honor of Buck O'Neil, the only seat in the park that is not painted powder
Fans of the team have long known that the cost of Royals tickets is a small price to
pay for access to the facility and the chance to watch their team live and in person.
Good sight lines and modern renovations that include features such as four new ticket
gates and enhanced vertical circulation to all levels have allowed fans to enjoy more
convenient access to Kauffman stadium and the team they love.
Royals tickets sales are beginning to pick up as the team begins to recover
from the poor performances that have plagued them and the fans for over a decade. Fans of the
franchise are beginning to see hope that the future of the team may be starting to
change, finding the time to go and see a game in person allows them to cheer on the
Royals and take part of what they hope to be a larger comeback. Royals tickets are
able to offer fans of the team a great value, a lot of entertainment, and the chance to
support the team in the seasons to come.
