Kansas City Royals Ticket Information

One of the most successful expansion teams of the last half-century, the Kansas City Royals have made a name for themselves as they took on the sport’s biggest names. Tickets to a Royals game put you in the center of the action as the Blue Crew deliver some phenomenal action, at home in Kauffman Stadium or slugging it out on the road.

Kings of the Heartland

Named for Kansas City, Missouri’s annual rodeo and livestock show, the Royals proudly have one foot in the Great Plains. The team joined the American League as an expansion team in 1969, after the Athletics moved the rest of the way to the West Coast, and didn’t waste time making their presence known. They scored their first winning season in 1971, won 3 straight division titles in 1976–78, took down the New York Yankees in 1980 to win their first pennant, and went back to win their first World Series in 1985.

Despite going for the next 28 years without qualifying for the postseason, the Royals kept their reputation as fierce competitors and added names like Frank White and George Brett to the ranks of baseball legends before a long, slow slide in the 1990s. The team’s fortunes turned back around in the last decade, leading them to the World Series in 2014 and back to win it in 2015.

Pride & Persistence

The Royals haven’t let their newcomer status or lack of a giant media market stop them from reaching for the top. Their rivalry with the St. Louis Cardinals regularly pits them against one of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball, and the Royals are still aiming for their next postseason run. If you’re looking for a standout event among the things to do in Kansas City, try picking up a ticket to see the Royals play.
