If you don’t yet have tickets and you are thinking about going to a Washington Nationals game at Nationals Park, you have many options to choose from. You may be wondering if you can buy Washington Nationals Tickets at the stadium gate on gameday?

Update: As of 2022, the Washington Nationals use digital tickets. The ticket office windows at the stadium can provide assistance in purchasing digital tickets. You can purchase tickets directly from the team’s website or from the MLB Ballpark app as long as supplies last. You can also purchase tickets from ticket brokers such as StubHub or Vivid Seats. I like to use Vivid Seats because they show me what my view from the seats will look like prior to purchase. Click here to view Nationals tickets available at VividSeats.com (affiliate link takes you to vividseats.com).

The Nationals main ticket office at Nationals Park is located on the north side of the stadium along N Street SE adjacent to the centerfield gate. Any fan having issues purchasing mobile tickets can go to the ticket windows for assistance on gameday.

You can also buy directly from the team by downloading the MLB Ballpark App to your mobile device. The MLB Ballpark app is MLB’s free, official app that makes it easy to access, manage, and use your tickets. 

Buying MLB tickets online can help simplify the process and remove some of the risks and annoyances that come from buying tickets at the stadium. In this article we discuss how to buy Nationals tickets for games at Nationals Park.

Buying Washington Nationals Tickets at the Stadium

Can You Buy Tickets at Nationals Park?

As of 2022, the Washington Nationals use digital tickets. The ticket office windows at the stadium can provide assistance in purchasing digital tickets. You can purchase tickets directly from the team’s website or from the MLB Ballpark app as long as supplies last. You can also purchase tickets from ticket brokers such as StubHub or Vivid Seats.

If you need to visit the ticket office for assistance, the Nationals main ticket office at Nationals Park is located on the north side of the stadium (view) along N Street SE adjacent to the centerfield gate. You will see several ticket windows with signs that say “Tickets”.

Some Washington Nationals home games will sellout.  Therefore, if you wait to buy tickets at the game, you may miss out. Buying your tickets in advance, if possible, is always best.

You can also buy directly from the team by downloading the MLB Ballpark App to your mobile device. The MLB Ballpark app is MLB’s free, official app that makes it easy to access, manage, and use your tickets. This is where you can learn more about the Ballpark App.

Best Online Site for Washington Nationals Tickets

Buying from the team, if possible, is always the best option. But some fans like to use online ticket brokers like StubHub and Vivid Seats, which give you access to re-sold fan-to-fan tickets.

I like to use Vivid Seats because they show me what my view from the seats will look like prior to purchase. Click here to view Nationals tickets available at VividSeats.com (affiliate link takes you to vividseats.com).

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.

Of course, you can always contact the Nationals and see if they have tickets available, but often times buying through an online ticket broker gives you a wider range of tickets and prices to choose from anyway. If there are no more tickets available through the Nationals official website, the buying through a ticket broker like Vivid Seats is needed. 

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. As mentioned, usually online ticket brokers like Vivid Seats will have a lot more tickets available and options to choose from.

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. Click here to browse through Nationals tickets on Vivid Seats to see what seats are available, and what prices (affiliate link takes you to VividSeats.com).

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.
