Orioles to host Game 1 of the ALCS vs. Kansas City Royals on Friday

The Orioles will play the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series for a berth in the World Series.

The two teams will meet in Game 1 on Friday and Game 2 on Saturday at Camden Yards before moving to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City for Games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary). Games 6 and 7 would be at Camden Yards, if they're needed. All game times have yet to be announced.

Both teams completed a three-game sweep in the AL Division Series on Sunday. The Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, in the deciding game of their series, while the Royals routed the Los Angeles Angels, 8-3, in Game 3 to advance.

It's guaranteed that the AL winner will be playing in the World Series for the first time in at least 29 years. The Royals last advanced to -- and won -- the Fall Classic in 1985, while the Orioles' last appearance (and win) in the World Series was in 1983.

On Saturday morning, the Orioles announced two options for fans to purchase tickets for the ALCS.

Fans who place a minimum $250 per seat deposit on a 2015 full or partial season-ticket plan by noon Monday will have a chance to buy ALCS tickets, and possibly other future postseason tickets, via an exclusive online-only presale Tuesday at 10 a.m.

A public sale for ALCS tickets will take place Thursday at noon, exclusively online at orioles.com/postseason. Availability is expected to be extremely limited, and a maximum of four tickets per ALCS game may be purchased.
