Exchangeable Tickets

This service is suspended during COVID-19. Under normal circumstances however, you can make your individual game ticket as flexible as your ever-changing schedule by selecting the “Exchangeable Ticket” option when purchasing your tickets. For an additional $5 charge per ticket, you are purchasing a fully transferable ticket that can be exchanged for a ticket of equal or lesser value, based on availability, for any non-restricted home game (excludes July 4 and any USL soccer games and non-Isotopes events). This is a great option if you think your plans may change and you may not be able to attend the game for which the tickets were originally purchased. Your “Exchangeable Ticket” is fully transferable at any time prior to or after the game date, provided the ticket has not yet been used. Transfers must take place exclusively at the Isotopes Park Box Office. There are no refunds/credits given for tickets exchanged for a lesser value. Seating is based on availability at the time of exchange at the Isotopes Park Box Office. Tickets must be transferred within the same season and cannot be transferred to another season.
