Final Payment  back to top
Payment must be made in full 6 weeks prior to your game date. This allows enough time for you to receive your tickets and distribute them to your group. Tickets will be released for sale if payment is not received 6 weeks prior to game date.


Increase/decrease your group size  back to top
If you would like to increase/decrease your group size please call us immediately. If there is still availability, we will accommodate you with additional tickets. We can increase your ticket count up until 24 hours before the game, based on availability. Decreasing tickets can only be done up until six weeks before the game. Once final payment is submitted, you cannot reduce the size of your group.


Children  back to top
Children four and under are free unless they require a seat. Ticket prices are the same for all fans 5 and over. 


Unused Tickets  back to top
If you have any unused tickets after the night of your event, they can be exchanged for free general admission tickets to any Monday - Thursday regular season game played at FirstEnergy Stadium or you'll receive a $2.00 discount off the price of reserved seat tickets to any remaining regular season game during the same season based upon availability. We recommend exchanging these tickets in advance.


Inclement Weather  back to top
There are two possible scenarios:
1. The gates will open and the buffet will be served while we determine the status of the game. This is, by far, the most likely scenario. The Reading Fightin Phils always do our best to play the games. If the buffet is served but the game is not completed (4 ½ innings) we will work with you to reschedule your group in red or green reserved seats. This can be done as a group or individually. In this situation group leaders should instruct everyone to hold on to their tickets. 
2. The game is a complete rainout and the gates are never opened. In the unlikely event that this occurs, the buffet will not be served and we will make every attempt to contact you as early as possible to keep you informed and reschedule your outing to a convenient date.

**In the event of inclement weather, feel free to contact your group sales contact at 610-375-8469 or log onto for updates on the status of the game.


Fliers  back to top
If you would like a flier(s) to help advertise and promote your group outing in addition to the email flier give us a call. We will send you a flier(s) that can be hung in break rooms or on bulletin boards so everyone can see it.


Group Pictures  back to top
During the game, the Reading Fightin Phils group sales representatives will be around to check on your group. At that time, we can take a photo(s) of your group by request only. We will take the photo(s) on your phones or cameras only.


Group Leader Rewards  back to top
If you purchase 20 or more tickets, you will receive an autographed baseball for your group. We will give the autographed baseball to you, the group leader, when you check in. If you are not able to check in, your group contact will bring it to you at the point of visitation. You can then choose who you would like to receive the baseball. In addition, each group leader will receive a complimentary VIP parking pass for the reserved parking lot located across from the main entrance to FirstEnergy Stadium. The parking pass will be mailed with your game tickets after payment is received. 


Birthdays / Special Occasions  back to top
If anyone in your group is celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary or graduation you might want to help them celebrate with one of our birthday package items


Tables  back to top
Some groups require a table where they can distribute nametags, etc. to their guests. If you have such needs please contact your group sales representative prior to the day of your game. 


Beer  back to top
Beer is not included in the price of the buffet area, but is available on a cash basis. If you would like to provide beer for your guests, we offer three options: beer tab, open bar, or Fightins Bucks. Please contact your group sales contact if either of these options interests you.

Open bar option is $15 per person in addition to the cost of your group ticket for each person over the age of 21. The duration of the open bar will begin 1 hour before game time and will last through the end of the 7th inning. Open bar includes beer, wine, and mixed drinks.

New for 2016, the open bar is also available at the Dugout Suite for $20. The cost includes a pre-game warning track cocktail party and features waitress service.


Phunland Wristbands  back to top
The wristbands are good for unlimited phunland games including, speed pitch, a mini-golf hole, and the inflatable slide. You also receive a ticket for one game at the ring toss. These wristbands are $8 if you order in advance or $10 at the game. Please contact your group sales manager if this interests you. 


Fightins Bucks  back to top
Looking to add something special to your group outing? Give your group members "Fightin Bucks". This special ballpark currency can be spent anywhere within FirstEnergy Stadium. Each Fightins Bucks works the same as the cash equivalent and can be purchased in any amount. Fightins Bucks are broken down into $1 and $5 denominations. Purchase your Fightins Bucks in advance or on the day of your outing. Also, there's no need to worry about overspending - unused Fightins Bucks can be returned for a refund. Fightins Bucks can be charged to Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover or paid for by cash or check. 


T-Shirts  back to top
We do offer an option for getting T-shirts for your entire group. If you would like your group to look the same and stand out in the crowd, you might want to think about group t-shirts. T-Shirts need to be ordered one month before your game date and you must order a minimum of 20 shirts. As a group leader you will receive a 20% discount on personalized group shirts or any items purchased in the amount of 20 or more prior to your game day. 

If you would like to add any of these packages please call (610) 375-8469.
