If you are planning to watch a Houston Astros game in person at Minute Maid Park and don’t yet have tickets, you might be wondering about your options. Can you buy Astros tickets at the gate?

Update: As of 2022, the Astros ticket office no longer sells hard tickets at the stadium. The ticket office at the stadium is open only to assist in ticket resolution issues. Tickets can be purchased online through the team or through ticket brokers like StubHub and Vivid Seats. I like to use Vivid Seats because they show me what my view from the seats will look like prior to purchase.

If possible, the best practice is to buy directly from the Astros to help ensure your ticket is valid. If you wish to speak with the ticket office at Minute Maid Park in person, the Astros Ticket Office is located on Texas Avenue on the southwest side of the stadium.

The Minute Maid Park Box Office is digital. You will no longer be able to purchase hard copy tickets on site. Text ‘Buy’ to 26099 to purchase your tickets or scan the QR code at the box office windows. You will be able to access your tickets through your smart phone on the MLB Ballpark app.

On game days beginning four (4) hours before first pitch, box office windows at each entrance will open for ticket resolution only.

The main Minute Maid Park Box Office is located on the southwest side of the ballpark, near the intersection of Texas Avenue and Avenida de las Americas. The address is 1701 Texas Avenue.

Buying MLB tickets online prior to going to the stadium can help simplify the process and remove some of the annoyances that come from buying tickets at the stadium. In this article let’s take a closer look at the details around buying Astros tickets.

Best Online Sites for Astros Tickets

There are many places to buy Astros tickets from online, but I prefer Vivid Seats because of the 100% Buyer Guarantee, their digital platform, and their loyalty program. They also have a great app for phones to use that gives you access to digital tickets. Digital tickets are nice, as they can be scanned at the gates making them contactless.

Buying tickets online can be a bit scary when it comes to giving out your information, which is why Vivid Seats has their 100% Buyer Guarantee program. The program is designed to give you security and peace of mind when you are buying tickets online. Here is all that comes with the 100% Buyers Guarantee program:

  • Hassle Free Customer Service
  • Private and Secure transaction (no selling or sharing your information to brokers)
  • Tickets Delivered before the Event Guaranteed or Money Back
  • Valid and Authentic Tickets or money back
  • Accurate Order Guarantee (your tickets will be identical, comparable, or better than your order or money back)
  • Money Back Guarantee for Cancelled Events

Not only do they make sure you are satisfied and your transactions are secure, but they also have a very user-friendly platform. When you go to purchase tickets, they show you exactly where the seats are on the stadium map. They also give you an actual picture view from those seats.

Vivid Seats Loyalty Program

As mentioned, Vivid Seats has a great loyalty program. Depending on how much you spend, you can earn up to 9% cash back on any purchase you make with them. Not only do you get an incredible 9% cash back if you reach “HOF” status, you will also get access to special VIP events and other additional perks. You can see more details here.

The difference between buying from Vivid Seats versus buying directly from the team is Vivid Seats is a secondary ticket marketplace, meaning fan-to-fan. There are, of course, other fan-to-fan ticket sites out there besides Vivid Seats that will also work just fine (like Ticketmaster). But I like to use Vivid Seats to take advantage of their 100% Buyer Guarantee and loyalty program.

The MLB has partnered with StubHub as the preferred primary ticketing partner. StubHub has an online sales platform, which is also a very popular that competes with Vivid Seats.
