As if the projected second straight league-worst season in 2019 isn’t bad enough.
Orioles season-ticket holders reported facing technical difficulties on the Ticketmaster website Wednesday while trying to purchase tickets for Opening Day at Camden Yards on April 4.
“I am not sure what’s more disastrous—trying to [buy] @Orioles Opening Day tickets in the plan holder presale or the #Orioles 2018 season,” Meghann Bowman tweeted.
In the afternoon, the Orioles issued a statement to apologize for the Ticketmaster problem.
“To our Birdland members, we apologize any inconvenience you experienced earlier today while attempting to purchase Opening Day tickets,” the statement read. “We have been advised that Ticketmaster has corrected the matter, and that members can now access the Opening Day sale without having to wait. Good inventory still remains. As an alternative to the online sales flow, members can also call their personal account representative or the Birdland member hotline at 410-547-6161.”
Ticketmaster did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Many other fans shared their disappointment on Twitter.
