Individual game tickets to the fifth season for the El Paso Chihuahuas go on sale to the general public on Saturday, February 24. The team is inviting the public to celebrate at the Fan Fest from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. that same day.
The Fan Fest is open to guests who purchase tickets in-person on Saturday. Fans will be given the opportunity to get a glimpse of Southwest University Park including the home clubhouse and batting cages, take photos with Chico, enjoy a Chihuahuas Team Shop sidewalk sale and more.
“It’s an honor to plan our Fifth Season Celebration and officially release individual tickets to the most supportive community in Minor League Baseball,” said Chihuahuas Vice President and General Manager Brad Taylor.
Those in attendance between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday will also have the first opportunity to purchase Padres vs. Chihuahuas Exhibition Game tickets and 2018 individual game tickets. Tickets will be available for purchase online at EPChihuahuas.com beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday morning (February 25).
