Those fans that registered themselves for pre-sale opportunities by attending the Curve's 2012 Opening Night game or by responding to a television advertisement during the Steelers' final preseason game in August will have their opportunity to purchase individual tickets before the December 1 date. These fans have already been contacted and will receive their presale information via e-mail.
"The excitement about the Pirates-Curve exhibition game has been very high since it was announced during our 2012 season opener in April," said Curve General Manager Rob Egan. "The response from our loyal season ticket holders and mini-plan holders has been terrific as most have already secured their tickets for the exhibition game and the 2013 Curve season. We also anticipate a large response from the two pre-sale groups over the next couple of weeks. As a result, we would encourage any fans wanting tickets to the Pirates-Curve exhibition game to either join us at the ballpark on Saturday, December 1 for the in-person only sale or to contemplate a season ticket or mini-plan package purchase prior to that date."
Any other fans that are interested in securing their seats before December 1 can purchase 2013 Curve full-season tickets or a 2013 mini-plan package. Those purchasing 2013 full-season tickets (71 games) receive the exhibition tickets free of charge with their package while mini-plan holders have the opportunity to purchase their tickets prior to the general public on-sale date.
The free Inaugural Holiday Bazaar on December 1 will help kick off the holiday season where area residents can find a variety of different holiday items for sale from over 70+ vendors around the community as well as the opening of the Curve Holiday Store, which will be located inside Peoples Natural Gas Field this holiday season. We'll also light the first-ever Curve, Pa. Christmas Tree and be greeted by the appearance of Steamer Claus at the first-ever event.
